My furnace was overheating and I did not know why

While I may not have encountered such a problem when grandma’s unit encounters the same, I will be sure to check it out

Furnace overheating is a common phenomenon. However, it can be scary if you are not sure what causes it. Even though the heating is essential during winter, it has to be moderate and safe for people in the house. It is not uncommon for furnace repair experts to be called to handle such issues. At one point in time, my furnace put me in such a predicament. For a long time, it overheated without changing even when I switched it off for some time. Once I invited my HVAC expert, I got to learn about a few potential causes for this. First, my unit’s airflow was blocked. Due to this blockage, the filters could permit free airflow. With time, dirt and dust clogged the filters, and the unit was overcompensating hence the overheating status. I learned about an inexpensive filter cleaning technique that has worked ever since. When these filters wear out in about three months, I replace them. Doing this is cheaper than having to replace the entire exchanger. I also discovered that cycling issues could be triggering the overheating. I left this issue to my HVAC provider to determine the problem and how best to fix it. Apart from the two issues mentioned above, an overheating HVAC could be due to old parts that need replacement. While I may not have encountered such a problem when grandma’s unit encounters the same, I will be sure to check it out. The secret is to maintain your HVAC unit adequately and conduct routine management practices as required. A furnace may be created to last for years, but neglect shortens its lifespan.
