Common Furnace Problems You Should Watch Out For

A furnace is indispensable most especially during winter months when the weather becomes unbearable cold. Indeed, your heating system provides you  great convenience and makes your home a comfortable place to live in. Without it, you would have to endure cold nights or manually light up a fireplace just to keep yourselves warm. However, you should know that a furnace requires regular maintenance to keep it at tip-top shape. And to help keep you informed, here’s a list of the most common furnace issues that you should watch out for!

  1. Dirty Filters

Dirty filters may not seem like a big concern for most of you but these should be taken care and cleaned right away. Dirt and durst can clog the filters and affect the airflow negatively. When that happens, your furnace will find it more difficult to work efficiently. In fact, clogged filters may even damage the furnace’s light switch which is responsible for controlling the fan.

  1. Malfunctioning Electric Ignition and Pilot Control Issues

When these parts get damaged, it will make keeping your home or business warm. So be very observant and seek the help of professionals once you encounter problems. Remember, a malfunctioning pilot light may be caused by thermocouple issues, draft or clogs in the heating system.

  1. Faulty Thermostat

A faulty thermostat may lead to problems with the furnace’s fan or may also affect your home’s comfort levels. In other words, the furnace may not be able to warm up your home when its thermostat is not working.

  1. Furnace Not Heating Up At All

If a furnace fails to warm up your home at all, it may have issues with the thermostat setting or its power supply (electric or gas). It could be caused by a damaged pilot light, too.

  1. Inadequate Heating

When a furnace isn’t making your house warm enough, you might have to check its filters. They may already be dirty and clogged. If they are, you should simply clean them. Otherwise, you may have to upgrade your heating system.

  1. Frequent On and Off

If your furnace turns on and off quite too frequently, it may indicate a clogged filter, a wrong thermostat setting or improper airflow. Again, have professionals check the appliance for you.

  1. Continuously Running Blower

If your furnace’s blower continuously runs, there may be a problem with the limit switch. If the problem is confirmed, that part should be replaced immediately.

  1. Noisy Furnace

A noisy furnace that produces rumbling, rattling or squeaking sounds isn’t in good condition at all. These kinds of reverberations indicate a problem with the appliance itself, a clogged burner or airflow issues.

Basic Plumbing Tips For Homeowners

plumbing tips for homeowners
Image by David Castillo Dominici at FreeDigitalPhotos.net

You just can’t tell when a plumbing emergency will arise. You may discover that your toilet is clogged first thing in the morning. Your faucet may leak while you’re cleaning your pots and pans. Your water heater may stop supply hot water to your fixtures. Your drains may get blocked up and back up. And while we cannot avoid emergencies, we can at least lessen their occurrence through regular maintenance and basic plumbing tips. Here are some valuable tips you should know as a homeowner:

  1. Never ever pour grease, fat or cooking oil down the drain. At low temperature, oil will solidify and block the pipes.
  2. The installation of strainers on your drains will prevent the entry of soap scum, debris, hair and other substances that may clog the pipes. Make sure that you have your drains covered.
  3. When using your garbage disposal systems, leave it on for a few seconds before grinding stuff in there. After using, turn the tap on and run it for 15 seconds , too. Doing so will help flush waste substances down the drain.
  4. Never grind bones, carrots, banana peels, stringy food items, rice, pasta and chicken skin in your garbage disposal system. These items may stick to the components of the machine and jam it.
  5. The washing machine is also an indispensable plumbing appliance that makes your daily life convenient. To prevent clogs in your main drain, make sure that you’ll put a wire trap or pantyhose at the end of the washer’s drain hose. These things will catch the soil, dirt and lint that are supposed to flow out of the hose with the soiled water.
  6. Condoms, cotton balls, cotton swabs, diapers, sanitary napkins, wipes, cigarette butts and even facial scrub pads should not get flushed down the toilet. These things will totally block the pipelines.
  7. If you believe that your toilet tank is leaking, you can simply pour a few drops of food color into it. If the water in the bowl turns the same color, the leak is confirmed. Have a professional fix the components of the tank for you.
  8. When your water heater stops working or when its tank leaks, turn its power supply off.
  9. Insulate your water heater tank and its supply pipes to increase its efficiency.
  10. Slow drains signify a budding clog. Address the problem right away by cleaning the drains. But remember, don’t use drain cleaners with harsh chemical content. You can go for good old baking soda and vinegar instead.
