A furnace that is suffering performance issues or malfunctions can be a major problem for your home. The reduction in heating capabilities may be one of the most noticeable issues that this problem will create, but it can also lead to significant safety risks for the home and its occupants. 

The Furnace Is Tripping The Circuit Breaker 

If your home has an electric furnace, there are problems that may interfere with the ability of the unit to regulate the amount of power that it is drawing from the home's electrical system. This could lead to it drawing far more than the electrical system is designed to support, which may cause the breaker to flip. In addition to being disruptive, this can also have the effect of damaging the electrical system and even some of the components of the furnace itself. If your furnace has started to trip the breakers more often, a professional evaluation will be needed to assess the extent of the damage to the system and to begin the process of repairing these problems.

Mechanical Failures With The Furnace System

A furnace may have some mechanical components that are critical to its operation. Unfortunately, failures with these components can lead to major problems for the furnace's ability to both generate and distribute heat. Mechanical problems with the furnace are often the result of poor maintenance practices on the part of the owner, but this can also occur when the unit is starting to approach the end of its designed lifespan. A furnace repair technician can complete these repairs for the system, but you should minimize your use of these systems until the necessary repairs are completed. Otherwise, you could cause further strain and damage to the unit.

A Significant Mold Problem In The Furnace

Mold growing in a furnace can be a significant problem for a home to experience. When mold is growing in this system, it will have a number of different impacts on it. This can include the mold obstructing the flow of air through the unit as well as allowing mold spores to be spread throughout the home by the air from the heating system. In addition to these problems, mold may cause the home's interior to smell foul and unpleasant when the system is active. In order to eliminate a furnace's mold problem, the interior of the system will have to be thoroughly cleaned and sanitized to eliminate the mold particles and spores.
