Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Charleston

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to outline the common heating problems Charleston homeowners often call Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are quite possibly hundreds of reasons why your Charleston home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Below is a list of the top five problems that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat glitches producing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Airflow problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace overheating or poor heating control

3. Old and clogged filters resulting in airflow and comfort problems

4. Pilot light or furnace ignition issues, resulting in intermittent or no heat

5. Lack of maintenance may cause unforeseen breakdowns, poor comfort or higher energy costs (plus a lot of homeowner frustration!)


Every one of these common issues can be addressed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Pardee Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly diagnose the problem area and make the required repairs. Purchasing a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could prevent almost all heating problems that result in no heat or low comfort levels. When you get a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they operate correctly and at maximum efficiency during the heating season. Critical items like Carbon Monoxide checks, adequate combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also top elements to the tune-up process. Don’t forget – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age have the potential to pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a regular basis.
