Furnaces in Ottawa
When the temperature starts to drop, no one likes it when the cold manages to creep inside their Ottawa homes. That is why it is so important to maintain your furnace throughout the year so that when the cold catches you off guard, you aren’t left shivering in your boots.
The furnace acts as the blower or fan for both the heating and the air conditioning in residential HVAC systems as well as the electrical control system. In the winter, or whenever it’s cold, the furnace ignites burners that heat up the heat exchanger. Then the blower moves the air across the heat exchanger and warm air is circulated through your home’s duct system and throughout your home.

Lack of Maintenance
Like any appliance, failing to get it inspected and tuned up on a regular basis can mean that it’s been running inefficiently, which adds stress to the inner workings of the furnace. Little problems have a way of getting exponentially bigger over time. So, often the best furnace repair money can buy is preventative maintenance.
Dirty or clogged air filters restrict airflow, which makes furnaces work much harder to circulate air around your home. A clogged or dirty filter can also damage the limit switch.
Electric Ignition or Pilot Control Problems
If there is a problem with the ignition or the pilot light, then you are going to have a very difficult time providing heat to your home. It could be a problem with the thermocouple, or maybe there is a draft coming down the flue blowing out the pilot light. A simple inspection courtesy of one of our highly trained technicians will reveal the problem and a solution will be found.
Whenever you suspect that there’s a problem with your furnace, don’t get tempted to figure it out yourself because there could be explosive consequences. Instead, take advantage of GK Plumbing & Heating Inc.’s affordable prices and leave it to the pros.
