Heating Repair: Common Problems Encountered by Forced-Air Furnaces
The forced-air furnace is the most preferred home heating system in Canada. Forced air furnaces distribute optimum indoor heat evenly throughout every room in a home through a structure of vents and air ducts. These furnaces are generally powered by natural gas, propane, oil, or electricity. Some models consume a combination of two types of fuel: wood-electric or oil-electricity. This set-up allows the forced-air furnace to meet the heating demands of homeowners during extreme weather conditions. Unfortunately, forced-air furnaces lose their efficiency as they near the end of their service life. Your furnace will eventually begin to break down, prompting the need to call a trusted heating service to come and repair the furnace. Fortunately, forced-air furnaces will exhibit warning signs before they fail.
