Some Common Furnace Repairs

Furnaces have a number of moving parts, more so than some other systems, so they can be more prone to developing repair issues. However, this doesn’t mean you should endeavor to make repairs on your own. There are some furnace repairs that our J & W Heating and Air experts see more than others, but common or not, our specialists are always here to help you with any heating repair you may have in Jacksonville. Here are some of the more common problem areas of your furnace:

The Blower

The blower, which is the large fan of your furnace, pushes the generated warm air into your home. Several types of problems can develop with the different components of the blower: motor issues, electrical problems, including with the wiring and capacitors, problems with the fan belt and issues with the fan blades. Any of these problems can affect how your blower operates, so it’s important to have them fixed as soon as possible.

The Heat Exchanger

The biggest problem with heat exchangers is that they can crack. During use, heat exchangers are constantly subject to high heat and then to cooling; this means metal is constantly expanding and contracting, which wears the metal down. Eventually the metal can crack. The problem with a cracked heat exchanger is that the toxic byproducts inside it can escape; as such, the heat exchanger will need to be replaced.

Ignition Problems

Combustion heating systems have either a standing pilot light or electronic ignition to light the burner. With either type, dirt in the nozzle can inhibit the ability of the pilot to light; when the pilot can’t light, neither can the system’s burner, which is necessary for generating heat. Other ignition problems include a pilot that won’t stay lit, or malfunctioning of safety switches.

Whether big or small, heating repairs in Jacksonville should always be attended to right away, for both your comfort and your safety. Having problems with your heating? Call J & W Heating and Air today!

Just had an entirely new, full HVAC install done at our old house in Riverside, which was a fairly big job. Brian and... Will did the installation, and were awesome. There was going to be issues leveling the air handler in the attic, so they moved it to a new spot and hung it instead, getting new parts/changing the plan on the fly. We're much happier with this new setup and location of the air handler. I really appreciated this, their professionalism/thoroughness, and flexibility. Brian and Will worked super-hard, and double-checked everything once the job was done. Would use this company more

Two installers here early this morning. Worked all day. Very professional, extremely well mannered and quick to answer... all my questions. They are Dustin and Robert. Both men went above just installing my new unit, they were personable and knowledgeable in what they were doing. I was surprised when I found out these two hadn't been working that long together. They worked extremely well together. I highly recommend this two more

A snake crawled into my outdoor condenser and stopped my 16 year old Trane last week on Thursday. The power surge took... out my blower unit circuit board and the motor. I called J&W and Rob was over within two hours of my call. I was spec'd a new York 17 seer system and it was up and running on Monday. Technicians Jason and Brian arrived promptly and every facet of the installation was thorough. When completed, I would not of even known they were there except they left my garage cleaner! Thanks J&W!read more
