4 Signs Your blower Motor is Going Bad

When winter rolls around, and the cold hits, the first thing we see that goes out on HVAC Heating Systems is the blower motor.

If you need service or repair, give us a call,

 Here are the signs of a failing blower motor:

1. Lack of Airflow

The most obvious sign that your HVAC blower motor is not working is that there will be no air from the vents, and the furnace is still running.

2. Circuit Breaker Tripping

The circuit breaker will frequently trip. A seized-up blower motor will undoubtedly trigger a circuit breaker. (Check the circuit breaker first; a faulty capacitor can also trip it.)

3. Strange Noises

The blower motor will make strange noises. Depending on the problem, blower motors can generate a variety of noises. When a blower is malfunctioning, it may generate noises like vibrations, grinding, and high-pitched noises.

4. Odor

A burning or hot odor may come from the air vents. A defective blower motor can sometimes overheat, giving off a “hot” odor through your air vents. Your blower motor can potentially start to burn in the worst-case conditions.

What causes a blower motor malfunction?

Blower motors degrade for several causes, including:

Restricted airflow, causing overheating
Dirty air filters
Motor winding damage
Faulty bearings
Internal motor parts that are rusted
Fan blade damage or scraping sides

One of the best ways to prevent damage to your blower motor is by replacing your dirty filters regularly. A clogged filter adds additional stress to your blower motor.

We provide repairs and service on all makes and models. You can call us now for immediate service.

The technicians were very professional and communicated very well about what they were doing. They worked outside in 90+ degrees and through a rain storm. I would recommend them for any plumbing services in the future.

I was able to get an appointment to tune up my AC unit the week following the week that I called. The technician was on time - wore a mask, gloves, and shoe coverings and endeavored to stick only to the thermostats and unit in the attic and went around to the back (I live in a town home) without going through my home. I truly appreciated this approach. The unit was serviced and the cost was very reasonable. I “found” this company because my daughter uses their services too and has been very happy with them.
