Signs Your Furnace Could Have a Faulty Gas Valve

Faulty gas valves are one of the most common reasons we’re called out for professional furnace repairs. As the cold, wind, and snow move into Vernon Hills, IL, securing the efficiency of your furnace is just as important as digging out your sleds and mittens. In addition to scheduling your annual furnace maintenance appointment, take a moment to learn the most common signs of a faulty gas valve.

Why Is Your Furnace Gas Valve Important?

Gas flows from your supply tank into your furnace through the gas valve. If the valve is faulty, it could allow gas to leak out into the surrounding environment. Most modern furnaces have built-in safety features, but leaks can still occur.

Gas leaks are serious health and safety risks that you should address immediately. If you notice any sign of a faulty gas valve or you just suspect your valve isn’t working properly, contact a professional for furnace repairs immediately.

If your gas valve is faulty but you don’t believe there is a gas leak, prompt service is still important. You want to address problems quickly so that they don’t become more expensive repair bills or serious safety and health risks.

Signs of a Faulty Gas Valve

If the gas valve is stuck or otherwise malfunctioning, your furnace may shut down completely or just stop delivering warm air. There are other issues that may cause the same symptom, so you need an experienced technician to diagnose the problem and apply the proper repair. The problem may go beyond your gas valve, so multiple parts or repairs could be needed.

Other Signs of Furnace Trouble

If you notice strange noises from your furnace, airflow distribution is weak, or it starts to cycle between on and off settings continuously, you likely have problems that don’t involve the gas valve. A service visit to troubleshoot the problem is needed.
