Providing Quality Furnace Repair and Maintenance

Furnace Services in Vancouver, WA

Furnaces are the most common type of heating system that homeowners use. They are usually gas-powered and have a series of interconnected parts that work together to heat your home. Some models run using oil or electricity, but you will find that gas-powered furnaces are the most popular.

You may hear your furnace referred to as a forced-air system. This particular name describes the physical process of how your furnace heats your home. Warm air is forced out and away from the furnace itself and into the ducts and vents. Then, the air is circulated throughout your home.

How a Furnace Works

The process of heating your home starts as soon as your furnace receives a signal from your thermostat. When you turn the temperature up, the furnace turns on. The furnace valve then opens up, igniting the burner within the combustion chamber.

Once the burner has been lit, the heat generated begins to circulate within a metal heat exchanger. The heat is then transferred into the air and forced out of the exchanger. The hot air is expelled by a fan, which blows it into the ducts and vents.

If this process is working as it should, you will then experience warm air coming from the vents in various rooms in your home. Once your home has reached the designated temperature, the furnace will shut off. The process will start back up again if the temperature in your home drops below the set point.

Common Furnace Problems

Dirty Filter
A dirty or worn air filter is one of the most common furnace problems that homeowners face. The air filter in your furnace gathers dust and debris from the air so that it doesn’t blow through the vents and make its way into the rooms of your home. If your air filter is dirty or clogged, your furnace may shut off prematurely.

Broken Thermostat
If your thermostat is broken, you may notice that the thermostat will read as though the heat is on, but no hot air is circulating throughout your home. Homeowners are most likely to experience issues with their thermostats after summer has ended and they attempt to turn on their heat for the first time in the fall.

Pilot Light is Out
The pilot light on your furnace may go out periodically. When this happens, it can indicate possible issues ranging from minor to more extensive. Your pilot light may be experiencing a malfunction or other problems related to dirt accumulation. Even a strong draft can be enough to extinguish the pilot light in your furnace.

I was planning a heater upgrade and received a 24 month no interest offer from Home Depot. They sent me a list of contractors and Comfort Air was the only contractor that called me before I could call anyone else. The customer support, salesperson and installers were fast, competent and incredibly supportive. From the time that I contacted them until the heater was installed was fast and the new heater is a big improvement over what I had before. Highly recommend Comfort Air for fast, efficient and professional service. I feel comfortable that they will be responsive, should there ever be an issue with my new heater!

Bradford the technician has come to our home a couple times and is always professional. I especially appreciate the exceptional customer service in the office. Every time I call, no matter who answers the phone, they always help me and go out of their way to help me understand how to troubleshoot my thermostat/heat pump. Today, I needed to revise an appt time and Rosa called me twice today to make sure she set up the appt for a time that would work for me. Fabulous service!
