Why Heating Systems Fail to Turn On

A faulty heating system requires maintenance and/or repairs. Those who fail to perform yearly furnace maintenance will find they have more HVAC issues as the winter progresses. Perhaps the system has a dirty blower that is causing a mechanical failure. Maybe the heat exchanger does not function unless ample cool air moves over it to prevent overheating. Once the motor is dirtied, the heat exchanger will malfunction as it is not exposed to a steady stream of air. Air filters should be changed once every three months to prevent airflow restriction.

Perhaps the refrigerant level is low on your home heat pump. The heater might have excess gas. If the furnace is not properly calibrated, it will burn up excess gas, leading to the system overheating or a cycling on of a limit switch. Maybe the blower capacitor is dead. The capacitor resembles a large battery. If its tolerance is below a specific threshold, the blower might not hit the targeted RPM. If this occurs, the capacitor won’t trigger and  your living/working space won’t receive heat.

Additional reasons for heat that won’t turn on include a faulty inducer draft motor, dead starting components, improper ductwork or a cracked heat exchanger. Let our HVAC services crew at Airco Service analyze your heating system to determine the exact problem and perform the appropriate repair or replacement.
