Problems Caused By an Old Gas Furnace

Many homeowners take a lot of pride in having a particular appliance or system last beyond its usual lifespan. However, when it comes to your gas furnace, you’ll want to really consider if it is wise to keep your old system or replace it with an efficient, safe one. One of the biggest reasons to consider replacing an old gas furnace is safety. As your gas furnace ages, the different components break down. Some of these components, like the heat exchanger, are critical for keeping your home free of the toxic gases (one of which is carbon monoxide). Imagine operating a gas furnace that isn’t entirely safe for your family – it’s not a good scenario.

Another place you can lose with an old gas furnace is energy efficiency. There’s just no way a gas furnace with 15+ years on it can match the efficiency of today’s furnaces. You could be spending a lot of excess money on fuel and not even know it. Let us show you how much better a new, reliable, safe and efficient gas furnace can help you and your family!

Reasons Why Your Furnace Isn’t Igniting

Your furnace generates heat through combustion, so if your furnace isn’t lighting the burner, your heat is compromised.

There can be a few reasons why a furnace won’t light, but no matter the cause, the repair should always be made by an expert, like the ones from Western Heating & Cooling:

  • Dirty/dusty igniters: If your furnace lights by electronic ignition and your furnace hasn’t been properly maintained, the igniter may be coated in a layer of dust or dirt that is inhibiting the ability of the igniter to do its job.
  • Problems with the burner: The burner is the larger component through which the gas jets are lit to generate heat. A number of things can go wrong with the burner, including corrosion and rust blocking the nozzles to problems with the main gas line feeding into the burner. An expert should always handle any issue with your burner.
  • Broken thermocouple: Thermocouples are used for both standing pilots and electronic ignition. The thermocouple functions as a safety device that tells your gas furnace whether or not the igniting flame is viable enough to ignite the burner. A malfunctioning or broken thermocouple can misread the pilot light and prevent your gas furnace from lighting.

Our gas furnace experts in Portland are available 7 days a week, and we offer emergency service when needed. If you need help with your gas furnace, give us a call at (503) 303-0771!
