Atlanta Heating Guide: How to Fix a Faulty Furnace Blower
October 29, 2012

The blower fan on your furnace is designed to distribute warm air through the ductwork in your Atlanta home evenly, ensuring you use all of the energy consumed by your furnace. If the blower doesn’t turn on when the furnace turns on or it continues to run when the furnace is off, it can cost you money and result in cold rooms. Here are some tips on how to fix a faulty furnace blower.

 What is the Problem?

First, check to see what the problem is. If your furnace blower remains on all of the time, it may be a thermostat issue. Make sure the fan isn’t set to stay on continuously (a common setting for most air handlers). You should also check the limit control switch to make sure it is working properly.

If the furnace blower isn’t turning on at all, you may have a belt problem. This can be fixed by a licensed professional. To repair the belt problem, they first turn off all electricity to the device. Then they will release the tension in the pulleys and remove the old furnace blower belt.  Next, your technician will make sure to check the blower for proper tension when they install the new belt. Remember  this is a complex job, so  you should call an Atlanta heating professional to inspect and repair the problem for you.
