One of the most important parts of your furnace is the blower. Its job is to blow the warm air your furnace creates through the ducts and out of the vents to warm your home. Without the blower, warm air goes nowhere and your furnace is unable to do its job. Blower problems are a common reason for furnace repair in Eden NC. If your blower goes out, your furnace will not be able to heat your home to the desired temperature, if it heats your home at all. Not only will you be left in the cold, but the lack of a properly working blower could cause additional damage to your heating system. If you are having trouble with your blower, call an HVAC professional.
How will I know my furnace blower isn’t working?
You may notice some signs that your furnace blower is malfunctioning. If you experience low air flow from your vents, it may be due to a faulty blower. If your home is heating unevenly, meaning some rooms are warmer than others, it could be because the blower isn’t forcing enough air through the ductwork and out of your vents in the rooms that are farther from the actual indoor unit. Excessive noise can mean that your blower is still running but that it is wearing out or has loose parts. If your circuit breaker trips more than once, it could mean that the blower is having to work too hard and is pulling too many amps, causing the breaker to trip. It could even be as subtle as a rise in your energy bill. If any of these things are going on, check your filters. If your filters are clogged with dust, replace them. If the problem persists, it would be in your best interest to call a professional HVAC repair service.
Should I replace just the blower or the whole heating & air system?
If your blower is malfunctioning or quits working, it may be that just a small part of the blower needs repaired or replaced. If that is the case, you can save a lot of money by simply repairing the blower. If the entire blower is shot and needs to be replaced, it may still be cheaper to replace it than to buy a whole new system. But if your furnace is getting old (more than 8 years) you may want to consider replacing it in order to save energy and lower your monthly heating bill. New high-efficiency furnaces can be up to 98% efficient, which is definitely more efficient than any furnace 8 years old or older. It may be in your best interest to get a new furnace than to invest money in replacing a part of your old furnace. A new, efficient furnace will save you more in the long run.
