February 03, 2015

We have discussed common air conditioning problems, now we’d like to review the common heating problems Edmonton homeowners often call McKinley Heating Service Experts about. Although there are theoretically hundreds of explanations why your Edmonton home’s furnace or heating system may need to be repaired. Below is a list of the top five complications that may cause your furnace or heating equipment to break down:

1. Thermostat breaks producing no heat, fan spinning or comfort problems

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

3. Dirty or clogged filters resulting in airflow and comfort problems

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

5. Lack of maintenance may cause unforeseen breakdowns, poor comfort or escalated energy costs (not to mention homeowner frustration!)


Every one of these common issues can be resolved by a professionally qualified, NATE-certified technician. Technicians from McKinley Heating Service Experts can quickly spot the problem area and make the required repairs. Purchasing a

With a proper tune-up, all the components are checked and serviced so they work correctly and at peak efficiency during the heating season. Vital items like Carbon Monoxide checks, ample combustion air, equipment clearances, and equipment safety are also top elements to the tune-up process. Remember – safety first! Never forget that furnaces of any age have the potential to pose safety hazards from combustion or gases, particularly if a NATE-certified technician has not maintained the equipment regularly.
