Lee’s Summit Furnace Repair
Restoring Heat to Your Home Quickly & Affordably
As a homeowner, there are few scenarios more dreadful than turning on the thermostat, only to discover there’s no warm air blowing, especially if it is in the middle of a Missouri winter. When the freezing sleet begins to fall, the cold winds start to howl, and ice and snow coat the ground, a broken or malfunctioning furnace is not just an inconvenience. Especially because some deep-winter nights can plunge below twenty degrees, having a powerful working furnace isn’t just a cozy comfort but could be a matter of life-or-death.
What can Cause a Furnace to Stop Working?
It's never a good sign when your furnace stops working, and identifying the underlying reason can be tricky if you don't know where to start. Calling in a professional to take a look is never a bad decision, but if you want to run some diagnostics before paying to have the issue fixed, here are some key things to look out for:
- Dirty furnace filters: If your furnace is still running, but not blowing out as much heat as normal, there's a chance that the problem is with the filters. Dirty air filters can block airflow, restricting the amount of heat your furnace can produce. Filers should be changed every three months or so, and you can pick up a replacement from your local hardware store.
- Thermostat setting: One of the most common issues preventing a furnace from running is the thermostat setting. Start by increasing the settings to a few degrees higher than room temperature, and if that doesn't work, check to make sure the batteries haven't died.
- Furnace power switch: Another common issue we find is that the furnace was simply never turned on. It's easy enough to check the power switch on or near your furnace to make sure it's actually on. If that's not the issue, you should then go and check the circuit breaker or fuse to make sure they weren't flipped off.

Signs of Furnace Failure
While furnace emergency situations sometimes cannot be helped, in many events you can forestall the worst disaster by heeding warning signs that your heater needs to be fixed. If you notice these signals, call us right away so we can take care of the problem before catastrophe strikes.
Some of the indicators that signal your furnace is on the fritz include:
Your furnace is getting older – In today’s day and age, the common life expectancy of home furnaces is between 15 and 20 years. When your furnace hits this mark, it’s time to start looking for a replacement. You can always get a check-up prior to making any purchases to see whether you can extend its life or whether it’s safer to get an update.
Your gas bills keep going up, despite your usage – Since furnaces lose their efficiency as their age increases, this means that your furnace won’t be able to give the same amount of heat for the amount of time it used to. You will suddenly see your energy bills increasing, which could be used to fix your furnace!
You notice strange burning odors and odd sounds – Any burning smells or clanking, hissing, and popping noises are never a good sign. If there is rattling, something could be loose in your blower. If there are acrid odors, one of the connections might be frazzled.
