Common reasons people call us for furnace repair

There are many reasons why your friends and neighbors in Germantown call James A. Wheat & Sons for their furnace repairs, but some of the most common ones include:

Furnace isn’t producing any heat – if you’re not getting any heat from your furnace, make sure the thermostat is set to HEAT mode and is set to the right temperature—you would be surprised how often people call us near the beginning of fall because their furnace isn’t producing enough heat, only to discover it was just the settings on the thermostat.

If the thermostat is set up properly, there are a number of other things that could be the problem, and your best bet is to call in the experts to take a look.

Furnace isn’t producing enough heat – if your furnace is producing some heat, but not as much as usual, the first thing you should do is check your air filters and swap them out with new ones if they’re dirty. If changing the filters doesn’t fix the problem, give us a call and we can help you out.

Furnace cycles on and off frequently – short cycling can be caused by a number of things, from an oversized furnace or undersized ducts. If you’ve changed the filter and the problem persists, call James A. Wheat & Sons to take a look.

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, the pros at James A. Wheat & Sons can come out and assess your furnace and recommend the best course of action.

Furnace is noisy – if your furnace 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, we can fix it!

Pilot light is burnt out – if your furnace’s pilot light is burnt out, it needs to be relit! Simple as that. If you don’t know how to do this, call James A. Wheat & Sons today!
