3 Causes of Furnace Failure in Durham, NC

Nothing is quite as frustrating as a faulty furnace in the dead of winter. As the timing is bad, don’t stress for you have an ace in your pocket: the expert team of heating experts at JD Service Now, available 24/7 for furnace repair & replacement. But why does your furnace do this to you? Trust us, it’s not spite. There are actual reasons that can lead to furnace failure.

Top Three Causes of Furnace Failure

1. Individual Parts May Break Down. Just as with your vehicle, all it takes is one part to stop operation. These failed parts could lead to a new furnace having to be installed. To prevent this from happening, schedule annual maintenance check ups with one of our trusted technicians. Knowing your furnace is up to date and tested regularly is one way to alleviate the stress of living in North Carolina during the winter.

2. Furnace Pilot Light or Ignition May Stop Functioning. This is the heart of your furnace. Without a consistent pilot light or an ignition, there is no heat. It’s that simple. Whether your furnace is old and needs to be replaced or your ignition system needs replacing, we can offer great service to both. Contact JD Service Now at once to have a certified technician arrive in minutes to solve the issue.

3. One of the most common causes of furnace failure our technicians encounter is a dirty or clogged filter preventing a consistent output of heat. The air filter prevents unwanted dust and pollen from being circulated by the furnace. It improves air quality while also helping your furnace running efficiently. If the furnace breaks down, before calling for quick reliable service, try checking the air filter. If it looks dirty or clogged, clean or replace it  this might do the trick. To prevent this situation, clean and replace the filter as part of a preventative maintenance program, something JD Service Now is happy to work out with you.

Depending on the age of your furnace, there are occasions when it needs immediate service. It’s vital to the comfort and safety of your family that these concerns are taken care of at once. Luckily for you, JD Service Now offers 24/7 emergency services any time of any day.

With regularly scheduled maintenance visits and immediate emergency repairs, JD Service Now is the name to trust for all your plumbing and heating needs. Contact us today!
