What if I sense that the furnace is turning on and off too quickly?
Furnaces are designed to turn on and off according to the feedback system in the thermostat. They kick in when the heat in your home dips below the lower set point, and shut off when it rises above the high set point. However if your furnace is kicking in and shutting off erratically, some component in the system is malfunctioning. The roots of the problem may be found in the thermostat, belt, blower motor, or the air filters. Try resetting the thermostat. If, for some reason, the thermostat is faulty, it probably should be replaced. You could try either tightening or loosening the belt, but if the belt is worn out, it needs to be replaced. Or it could be an issue with the blower motor lubrication. Call Pro Ace Heating and Air Conditioning to get our best advice before attempting to tweak the furnace yourself.
What can cause the furnace to begin to sound strangely?
Even the new high efficiency gas furnaces will make some audible noise as well as variations in sound as the furnace kicks in and shuts off. However if the pilot light is not properly set, you may hear a low rumbling sound when the furnace kicks in. Gas burner build-up may also cause a low rumbling sound. Higher pitched sounds may result from a maladjusted belt or some sort of abrasion in the motor. It is always best to consult professional furnace repair people before you attempt to tinker with the furnace yourself.
