Signs Your Furnace Needs Repairs
As much as we hope nothing goes wrong with your furnace, sometimes things are beyond our control and professional repairs are necessary. Here are some reasons why your gas furnace may have broken down:
- The air filter is very dirty: If you’ve forgotten to change your air filter for a while, it can get clogged with dirt and debris.
- Your furnace doesn’t have enough gas: It’s hard for a gas furnace to work properly without sufficient gas.
- Your furnace has built up a lot of condensation: This means your water reservoir is most likely full, meaning your furnace can’t work properly.
- The thermostat is broken: Jabbing the power button and it’s not listening to you? Your thermostat is probably broken, which may mean more serious furnace repairs, too.
- The blower motor is broken: No blower motor means no heat flowing through your home.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do gas furnaces need to be serviced?
Like most complex machines with moving parts, electronic components, and/or combustion, your furnace needs to be serviced regularly to stay in top condition. That means professional attention, not just a quick once-over by a homeowner looking at the user’s manual.
Gas furnaces are particularly needy in this regard, due to their use of combustion and the risks associated with any failures. You’ll want to have maintenance performed once per season of heavy usage, or at least once a year, ideally before the winter so you’ll get the most advantage.
How often do you need to clean a gas furnace?
You should probably clean the exterior of your gas furnace whenever you’re changing or cleaning your filters, about once a month — assuming you have user-serviced filters, of course.
By clearing out dust and any other messes off your furnace, you can reduce the likelihood of that dust and debris ending up somewhere it shouldn’t be and causing problems, or reducing the efficiency of your unit by clogging your filters faster than they should.
If you have easy access to your air ducts, giving them a glance for obstructions or heavy dust buildup is worth it as well. However, none of this is nearly as vital as replacing filters regularly and getting professional maintenance.
What happens if you don’t maintain your gas furnace?
If you don’t maintain your furnace, over time it will degrade in performance, efficiency, air quality, and reliability. You’ll be spending more money to achieve the same level of heat — if you can even achieve the right level of heat.
You’ll also be much more likely to experience problems as parts fail unexpectedly. Maintenance will prevent many parts failures and will help identify and repair them on your terms when they’re inevitable.
Given the nature of a gas furnace, regular maintenance to avoid failures is particularly important; you don’t want gas leaks, obstructions of your ventilation, etc.
How do I know whether to repair or replace my furnace?
As a general rule, you should think about replacing your furnace instead of just repairing it if it’s over 10 years old, if you’ve had to repair it repeatedly, if you want to take advantage of new technology or features, or if your repairs will be so expensive that putting that money toward an upgrade makes more sense.
