How often do you think about your furnace’s health? If you’re like most homeowners, it probably doesn’t cross your mind — until there’s a problem.
Paying closer attention to your heating system can help you identify minor issues before they become costly disasters. To that end, here are three common furnace problems to keep an eye out for:
1. Dirty and clogged filters. One of the most preventable furnace problems is also one of the most prevalent. If you don’t keep your filters clean, your furnace has to work harder to keep your home warm. Be sure to replace or clean your filters once a month to improve your furnace’s efficiency and extend its lifespan.
2. Insufficient maintenance and care. Furnaces aren’t cheap, that’s for sure. Doesn’t yours deserve some TLC once in a while? To keep your heating system running in tip-top shape, contact Service Plus Heating, Cooling & Plumbing and schedule routine maintenance.

3. Broken thermostat. If your furnace isn’t heating your home properly, it could have to do with a malfunctioning thermostat. Your thermostat is responsible for determining when the heat needs to kick on. Suspect your thermostat might be the problem? Don’t worry, we repair, service, replace and install thermostats!
