Furnace Repair & Common Problems

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


Gas Furnace Does Not Produce Enough Heat

  • The air filter may be dirty.
  • The gas burner may need adjustment or cleaning.
  • There may be an obstruction in the air flow to combustion air chamber.

Gas Furnace Comes On/Off Too Frequently

  • The air filter may be dirty.
  • There may be a blower motor issue.
  • There may be an issue with the thermostat.

Customer Reviews

This was an exceptional experience! We woke up to our A/C on but not cooling (it was 6am and already 81 in the house). The person who set up our appointment was very nice, able to get us seen same-day, and let us know of some options to help save us money.

-Christy Cormier

The service from Sam and Chris was excellent! They were very knowledgeable and professional. They were able to answer all of my questions and completed all of my electrical issues. I will definitely use them again for future jobs. Thank you!

-Adrienne Beal

From the get go I could tell that the Snyder employees were truly professionals and didn’t push to make sales like other companies I’ve talked to my whole life. They took the time to explain so that I could make a decision. The installers and later the duct cleaners were very respectful during their work here. Thank you.

-Mike Daniels

Snyder Heating and AC is dependable, always on time and techs have always been courteous and knowledgeable. Emanuel was a great addition to the company. He was friendly and knew what he was doing. Thank you for great service.

-Linda Ackley

Snyder came in and did a total overhaul of our duct system. They had a great knowledge of what to do to make our home so comfortable! The technicians were all so professional and took great care of us! We’re so thankful for their expertise. Great and easy communication with the call center. We will definitely use them again!

-Crystal Hill

Snyder provided an amazing experience from start to finish. Most of us dread getting estimates with pressuring salespeople. Erik was a great guy, explained all my options and didn’t try to pressure me to act quickly! Justin followed up with my husband and I to offer further assistance in our decision. Again, no pressure, just helped with our follow up questions.

-Michele Bauer

Very prompt, professional, courteous, and cleaned up after repair. Had water line break in my front yard and no pressure. Very pleased and would highly recommend Snyder for all your plumbing, and AC needs. Thank you for making a rough morning get better with ease and professionalism.

-Chuck Jr.

Snyder was easy to get in contact with and had availability the next day. Clint came out and needed some parts so had to reschedule us for the next day for installation. He did a great job converting our old 3 knob shower to one. Looks great! Professional and courteous. 100% recommend this company, especially Clint.
