ECOEDGE HELPS DIAGNOSE STANDARD HEATING TROUBLES
Having problems heating your house? The good news is that we can help. Call us as soon as you suspect an issue so the problem doesn’t worsen over time. In the meantime, check out these common problems that might be affecting your home’s heat.
WHY WON’T THE HEATING SYSTEM TURN ON?
First—and we have to say it just to get it out of the way—make sure the system wasn’t accidentally turned off. If the switch is set to “ON” but it still isn’t working, check your electrical panel. The breaker might have tripped, and that might be the reason your system isn’t working. Failing that, make sure the thermostat is set correctly. It should be set to a temperature higher than the current temperature inside the home. If after following these steps the system still hasn’t turned on, call EcoEdge for service.
WHY IS THE FAN RUNNING WITHOUT BLOWING ANY HEAT?
Many things could be causing this problem, and the cause largely depends on the type of system installed in your home. Check these things:
- If your furnace has a pilot light, make sure it hasn’t gone out. If the pilot light is out, your furnace won’t be able to start.
- Check your water heater. If both your furnace and water heater run on gas, you’ll know that the gas supply isn’t the problem if the water heater is working.
- Change your air filter. A dirty or clogged air filter can keep your furnace from operating at peak efficiency.

WHY IS THE FURNACE SHUTTING OFF BEFORE BRINGING MY HOUSE UP TO TEMPERATURE?
If your furnace is shutting off or cycling frequently, first check your air filter. If that isn’t the problem, the issue is likely mechanical and will require a professional’s intervention. In some cases, your furnace’s safety mechanism might be shutting it off to stop it from overheating and creating a safety hazard.
WHY IS THE HEATING UNIT MAKING A MECHANICAL NOISE?
A number of things might be causing your unit to make a loud noise. That could include a cracked heat exchanger, a broken blower belt, worn-out ball bearings, a bad limit switch or other mechanical problems. In all instances, calling in the pros is the best solution.
