Fan is working on my furnace but no heat is coming out. Would replacing the filter eliminate this problem?

It's possible that a dirty filter is making your furnace work harder to produce heat, but it's doubtful that this is the main cause of your problem. It's always a good idea to change a dirty filter, though. Other possible causes of this problem include a bad gas valve or igniter, or a faulty heating element. Also, be sure to check that your thermostat is working properly.

We get a lot of questions in the forum about furnaces not producing heat -- If you'd like to have a contractor take a look at this, we can help you find one, here.
