Common Heating Components that Need Repair:

In those unfortunate moments when your furnace is failing and needs heating repair, the problem can usually be traced to one of three furnace component parts:

  • The Burner, heating element, and heat exchanger. Oil and gas furnaces have a combustion chamber and electric furnaces have heating elements. Damage to any of these components can be dangerous, and require immediate professional attention.
  • The blower. The moving parts in your furnace is in the blower. Circulating air through the heat exchanger or across the heating elements, the blower distributes warm air into and through the duct work. When the blower fails, the heated air is not being distributed throughout your home, even though the furnace is producing heat.
  • Electronic circuits, control and safety devices. The failure of these devices will prevent your furnace from heating and distributing air throughout your home or business. Replacing any of this equipment should only be done by trained service professionals.
