A furnace may not stay lit for a variety of reasons. Trying to figure out this issue on your own can be difficult. Reaching out to an HVAC company is recommended to take care of this problem. An HVAC tech can inspect your furnace and make any needed repairs to keep your system working throughout the winter. Here are five possible reasons why your furnace won’t stay lit.
1. Clogged Burners
If the burners on your furnace are covered in dirt or debris, they may not be able to stay lit for very long. This problem can happen due to a lack of regular maintenance or a buildup of dirt and dust in the furnace.
2. Faulty Ignition System
The ignition system on your furnace is responsible for lighting the burners. If this system isn’t functioning properly, the furnace may not be able to stay lit. This can be caused by a faulty ignition control board, faulty ignition wires, or a malfunctioning ignition sensor.
3. Incorrectly Sized Furnace
If your furnace is not the correct size for your home, it may struggle to heat your home efficiently. This can often cause the furnace to shut off frequently as it struggles to maintain the demand for heat.
4. Improper Ventilation
Your furnace needs proper ventilation to operate safely and efficiently. If the furnace is not receiving enough fresh air, it may not be able to stay lit. A clogged burner can also cause this issue, which is why it’s important to reach out to an HVAC technician.
5. Failed Control Board
The control board on your furnace is responsible for managing the various components of the furnace. If this board fails, it can cause the furnace to shut off frequently, as it is unable to properly control the burners and other components.
