Does My Furnace Need Repaired? Pt. 2

Previously we discussed preparing your furnace for the winter months. In continuation with the last blog, we’ll continue to discuss some insecurities brought about by your furnace not working to its full potential.

Yellow pilot light: When you check on your furnace and notice that your pilot light is burning yellow, you may not think anything of it at first. The trouble is that a yellow flame indicates that the gas combination of your furnace is not in good condition. A blue flame is the ideal because it indicates an ideal balance of gases. Yellow can indicate problem gases such as Carbon Monoxide.

Furnace won’t run continuously: Furnace repairs that might be needed to correct this problem are replacing a thermostat, faulty wiring, repairing a pilot light, or fixing a fan motor

Poor air quality: If your furnace needs repairs, you can often see a rise in the frequency that you and your family experience breathing-related troubles such as asthma, allergies, and other illnesses. A poorly-functioning system can be putting dust, mold, and other irritants into the air that circulates through your home.
