Often times, it can cause overheating, poor heating control, and lots more issues. To avoid erosion issues in mechanical heating parts, regular maintenance is vital.

Pilot or Ignition Control issues

Ignition control is one of the most important parts of a furnace. If it is out of order, you may experience irregular or poor heat. If your heating system stops working suddenly or shut off at random, it is likely due to malfunctioning pilot or ignition control. Do not even think to fix this problem by you own. It can be highly dangerous to deal with broken pilot light or ignition control. So, call a professional immediately, whenever you notice this issue.
