When Do You Need Furnace Service?
Furnaces should operate quietly for most of their 10–15 year life span. There are, however, certain things that can go wrong with your furnace that would furnace repairs, including:
Your furnace isn’t producing any heat: This is common at the start of the heating season (and can be prevented with a preseason furnace tune-up). If you’re not getting heat from your furnace, make sure the thermostat is set to HEAT mode and to the right temperature. If it is set properly, you may have a tripped circuit breaker, blown fuse, or your pilot light could be out. If your furnace isn’t creating heat, call us to get it fixed quickly.
Your furnace isn’t producing enough heat: If your furnace is producing some heat, but not as much as usual, first check your filters and ensure they’re clean—you may need to replace them. If changing the filters doesn’t fix the problem, call Arctic Air Conditioning for furnace repairs. Your gas burners may need to be adjusted.
Your furnace cycles on and off frequently: Short-cycling can be caused by several things, from an oversized furnace or undersized ducts to clogged air filters that cause the motor to overheat. If you’ve changed the filter and the problem persists, call us—you may need to lubricate the blower motor or adjust the fan belt.
The blower fan seems to be running constantly: If your blower fan seems to run nonstop, make sure the fan setting on the thermostat is set to AUTO instead of ON. If it is or if your thermostat doesn’t have a fan setting, schedule an appointment today—you may need to replace or repair your furnace’s fan limit control switch.
Your furnace is too noisy: If it makes a lot of noise when it runs, it could mean the pilot needs to be adjusted, or your furnace components need oil. Whatever the case may be, call us for furnace repair!
Your pilot light is burnt out: If your furnace’s pilot light is burnt out, it needs to be relit. If you don’t know how to do this, call Arctic Air Conditioning today!

Frequently Asked Questions
How long will my repair take?
Depending on the complexity of the repair and whether appropriate parts are readily available, your furnace might be up and running within a few minutes of a technician’s arrival.
If the repair requires significant amounts of work, or if the part is not immediately available, your repair could require a few hours or a return visit. We won’t know for sure until we see your furnace and identify the problem — but in most cases, your furnace will be working within the day.
Should I repair or replace my furnace?
As a rule of thumb, if you have a modern furnace and it hasn’t needed repairs in the past, you’ll be well served by a repair service. On the other hand, if your furnace has required repairs in the past or it’s old enough that sourcing parts is difficult, components are failing more frequently, and efficiency is significantly lower than modern units, we recommend a replacement.
In some cases, a furnace in otherwise good health may require significantly expensive repairs, in which case you’ll need to decide whether to pay for that or put that money into an upgrade. This decision probably comes down to how satisfied you are with your current unit.
Of course, if your unit needs repairs because it’s overworked from being too small or otherwise inappropriate for your home, that should also shape your decision.
How can I avoid needing more repairs?
Regular furnace maintenance will greatly extend the life span of the furnace. At a minimum, homeowners should keep up with filters and check for visible problems monthly. You should also seek professional maintenance on a seasonal or annual basis to tune-up your system and keep it running optimally.
A minor annoyance that would be eliminated by basic maintenance can gradually develop into a problem. A small problem ignored can grow into a big problem or damage other components, resulting in lots of small problems all at once, which will cost you. It’s best to keep up with your furnace’s health and eliminate problems as soon as they arise.
Is there anything I should check on my own?
Before you assume a serious problem with your furnace, make sure the pilot light is lit, all appropriate breakers are flipped, and the intake isn’t blocked by a clogged air filter or some other obstruction.
These are common sources of furnace trouble that a homeowner can readily correct. Of course, if pilot lights keep going out or breakers keep flipping, these indicate serious problems that demand attention — even if your furnace works for a while each time.
How much will my repair cost?
The price of a furnace repair is difficult to gauge without seeing it, same as the repair time. If a problem only requires technical know-how or the right tool and a few minutes of work, that will cost significantly less than a problem that requires heavy labor and new parts to replace a failed motor or heating element.
Generally, the more long-standing a problem and the older your furnace, the more expensive a repair could become.
