Residential and commercial building owners should schedule heating system maintenance and repair a few times a year. This is to ensure that your furnaces would be in good working condition when you need heating the most.

The efficiency of the furnace decreases when its filters are clogged or dirty. A dirty or clogged filter forces your furnace to work harder to push heated air around the home. Doing so can lead to damage to the fan motor as it will work to its limit. It is a fire hazard, aside from causing more expensive repair.
The thermostat is vital to the regular function of the furnace as it dictates the temperature you need to keep your house warm. It is also sets the frequency for the system to turn on and off automatically to maintain the temperature inside the house. There is a problem with the thermostat if it keeps resetting.
Several furnace components, such as burners, fan blades, pilots, motors, switches, filters, belts and bearings would breakdown after some time. A regular checkup will determine which parts need replacement or cleaning.
If there is problem with the furnace’s ignition, it cannot generate heat. Depending on the brand and type, the furnace could have hot surface system, gas-powered, electrical spark or electrical-powered ignition system. A licensed furnace repair technician is needed to check this problem.
Your furnace needs the attention of a licensed heating system technician to inspect the unit. The rapid cycled between on and off could be due to a defective fan motor, a problem with the thermostat or a dirty filter.
