Furnace blowing cold air?
Many homeowners in Washington County first notice they have a gas furnace problem when the furnace is blowing cold air... when it’s supposed to be warm air! If your heater is blowing cold air, first check the furnace filter. A stoppedup furnace filter can cause your high efficiency furnace to overheat and shut down for safety.
Thermostat not working?
What if the furnace isn’t broken at all? The heating cycle starts by the t-stat delivering a signal to the furnace letting it know your home needs heating or cooling. If the thermostat programing is wrong the furnace may not be getting the proper signals. Make sure there is a new set of batteries in the thermostat and the thermostat cover is installed properly. If you wonder if your system has a bad thermostat call 262-367-3266 or schedule an appointment for a professional opinion.
Furnace making loud sounds?
If you have a Trane furnace or Amana furnace or any other brand of high efficiency furnace, it likely has two motors. The blower motor blows air through your home. The inducer motor is also known as the venter motor or exhaust motor and blows flue gasses outside. Grinding or squealing noise from either motor is an indication that failure is near. A Polar Express Furnace Guru can diagnose the cause of motor sounds and offer cost effective furnace repair in Washington County.

Furnace Safety Inspection
If you invest in a furnace safety inspection, the primary reason for this service is safety. It usually includes a visual inspection of the safety related items of the furnace. This service should include a video inspection of the primary and secondary heat exchanger as well as a thorough inspection of electrical wiring and safety switches.
Furnace clean & check
This furnace service usually includes cleaning out the drain system, eliminating major dust and debris from the furnace and running the unit through a few cycles to make sure everything is working.

Common heating system components
A typical gas forced air furnace has 6 key components and six consumable components that commonly break down. The main components are the primary heat exchanger, secondary heat exchanger, inducer motor, blower motor, gas valve and circuit boards. If your furnace is over 12 years old and you have a major component failure it is wise to look at heating system replacement with a new high efficiency furnace.
The secondary components are- drain system, pressure switches, igniter, capacitor, flame sensor and secondary control circuits. Your Furnace Guru from Polar Express will identify precisely what is causing your Washington County furnace or boiler problems and offer you repair options.
Do you have a room or an entire floor level that is not heating properly? Two story heating problems are common. Uneven heating occurs in most instances because the duct system was never properly balanced. A Polar Express Furnace Guru can evaluate the air flow in your duct system and offer solutions to uneven heating and hot and cold spots in your Washington County residence.
