Unlike a gas furnace, the electric furnace uses coils heated by electricity to warm the air in your home. Although often thought of as expensive, electric furnaces have a number of advantages over gas models, including quiet operation and low maintenance cost thanks to fewer moving parts. But like any other appliance, they still suffer from breakdowns and other issues from time to time. In Apex, furnace repair services can often correct those problems when they crop up, which can be a big relief to homeowners trying to stay warm on a chilly night. Here are 3 issues solved by our electric furnace repair service.
- Lack of power. Frayed electrical wires, bad sequencers, poor connections and similar electrical issues will often result in a lack of power to the heater. It can sometimes be caused by an overloaded circuit breaker in your main power box as well.
- Thermostat problems. Many times, a problem with an electrical furnace stems not from the furnace itself, but from a faulty thermostat. If the thermostat misreads the temperature, it will turn the furnace on at odd times, or refuse to turn it on when you need it. (It can also cause the furnace to run longer or shorter than you would like.) Fixing or replacing the thermostat will solve the issue, though in some cases you may need to change its location to somewhere that more accurately reflects the temperature in your home.
- Faulty relay. A bad relay usually means that the furnace won’t turn off once your home is heated. A good technician can replace the relay and solve the problem.
