How does the furnace operate?

The conventional gas furnace is a home appliance that heats the home by taking in cold air, cleaning it through the filter, and then heating it via the gas burner before distributing it through your home’s ductwork. Even in Florida, there are times that you notice when your furnace is not working quite right and it can be irritating and costly. Here are some of the most common furnace repairs that are requested by homeowners like you.

Gas Furnace Produces No Heat

When your furnace is no longer producing heat, the main cause may be one of the following:


  • Thermostat may be set too low that it does not call heat
  • Thermostat may have stopped working
  • The furnace’s circuit breaker or fuse may be tripped or blown
  • Natural gas or propane control valve is closed
  • Pilot light is out (non-electronic ignition)
  • There may be a problem with the hot surface ignition
  • There may be a problem with the intermittent pilot electronic ignition
