Top 5 Furnace and Heating Problems in Hilton Head Island

February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to outline the common heating problems Hilton Head Island homeowners often call Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are quite possibly hundreds of explanations why your Hilton Head Island home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Below is a list of the top five complications that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat malfunctions producing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Airflow problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace excessive heat or poor heating control

3. Flithy and clogged filters resulting in airflow and comfort problems

4. Furnace or heating system pilot or ignition control problems, resulting in spotty or no heat

5. Lack of regular service may cause unexpected breakdowns, poor comfort or escalated energy costs (in addition to emmense homeowner frustration!)


Each of these common issues can be addressed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Epperson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly detect the problem area and make the necessary repairs. Having a
precision tune-up or maintenance plan could prevent almost all heating problems that result in no heat or low comfort levels. When you get a tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they run correctly and at peak efficiency during the heating season. Critical items like Carbon Monoxide checks, adequate combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also top elements to the tune-up process. Don’t forget – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age can pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, this is particularly the case if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a regular basis.
