February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to review problems related to heating that Rochester homeowners often call Strogen's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning about. Although there are potentially hundreds of reasons why your Rochester home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Here are the top five issues that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

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

2. Air passage 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 intermittent or no heat

5. Lack of regular service may cause unanticipated breakdowns, poor comfort or increased energy costs (not to mention homeowner frustration!)


Every one of these common issues can be fixed by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from Strogen's Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning can quickly diagnose the problem area and make the necessary repairs. Purchasing a

With a proper tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they operate correctly and at peak efficiency during the heating season. Critical items like Carbon Monoxide checks, plenty of 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 have the potential to pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, especially if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment on a regular basis.
