We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to outline the common heating problems Louisville homeowners often call Becht/Givens Service Experts about. Although there are quite possibly hundreds of reasons why your Louisville home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Listed below are the top five complications that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat glitches resulting in no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

2. Air circulation problems from fan motors, belts and bearings, causing furnace overload or poor heating control

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

4. Pilot light or furnace ignition issues, resulting in intermittent or no heat
