Common Furnace Issues

Lack of Heat 

The lack of heat in a furnace system can stem from various causes, including thermostat issues, pilot light problems, and gas supply complications. Malfunctioning thermostats often disrupt temperature regulation due to inaccurate readings, faulty wiring, or dead batteries, even affecting smart thermostats with connectivity issues. 


Pilot light problems, prevalent in older systems, can result from issues with the thermocouple, gas supply, or drafts affecting flame stability. Additionally, an uninterrupted gas supply is crucial for proper furnace function; issues like gas valve malfunctions or blockages compromise heat production. 




Furnace repair

​Inadequate Heating 

Inadequate heating can stem from various factors such as clogged air filters, blower motor issues, and duct problems. Clogged air filters restrict airflow, causing uneven heating and discomfort. Malfunctioning blower motors hinder warm air circulation, while duct issues like leaks and blockages lead to heat loss and reduced efficiency. 


Strange Noises 

Strange noises coming from a furnace system, including grinding, banging, and squealing sounds, often indicate underlying issues. Grinding noises may result from blower motor problems, banging noises could signal loose or broken components, and squealing noises might be due to worn belts or bearings. Addressing these noises promptly is essential to prevent further damage, ensure safety, and maintain energy efficiency. 


Frequent Cycling 

Frequent cycling, or short cycling, in a furnace system, can result from thermostat malfunctions and airflow obstructions. Incorrect signals from a malfunctioning thermostat and restricted airflow due to clogged filters or blocked vents lead to rapid cycling. This negatively impacts energy efficiency and accelerates component wear, affecting both utility bills and the furnace's lifespan.

Why Kitchener Trusts Us for Furnace Repair


Hear from Serge in Kitchener: "Vincent was recommended to me by a close friend and I couldn't have been more happy. Vincent is very professional, smart, and gets the job done fast. Price was more than reasonable.


When I told him that I had an urgent issue that required us to shut down our furnace and my kids were getting cold, he dropped by an hour later to fix it. Vincent is your man if you need anything repaired around HVAC although I'm certain he can fix pretty much anything."


Mike from Kitchener shares: "Vincent came by late today to fix our furnace after hours and did an incredible job.


Thank you for coming the same day and not letting us freeze another night :) Highly recommended, great person and amazing prices.


I would leave 6 stars if possible!"
