Sometimes all it takes is a simple repair to significantly improve the efficiency of your furnace. Repairs can also extend the life of your furnace and protect you from costly repairs later on. In this guide, we’ll go over warning signs for furnace repair to help you preserve your heating system.
Your Furnace Struggles to Maintain Your Desired Interior Temperature
Do you feel like your home is always cold? Does your furnace run all day long just to maintain a comfortable temperature? This could be an issue with your thermostat or with your furnace itself. During your furnace inspection, we will examine the entire system to figure out why your furnace is struggling to maintain your climate. Then we can recommend solutions to restore warmth in your home.
You Don’t Feel Air Coming through the Vents
The air coming from your vents shouldn’t feel like a blow dryer, but it should feel like something. If you cannot feel any air coming out when your furnace is running, contact Quality Comfort HVAC for an inspection. We will check for potential blockages and other issues that may be inhibiting airflow.
You Hear Strange Noises from the Furnace
Loud noises typically mean that something has come loose in your heating system or a part is damaged. In either instance, furnace repair is necessary to mitigate the problem and ensure proper performance. If a part gets loose within the system, it could damage pieces that are still in good condition. Fast-acting furnace repair will save you from other damages to come.
Your Energy Bills Are Higher Than Normal
Your energy bills will change as the temperature outside changes. However, if you notice an unexplained spike in your bills, that may be a sign of furnace damage. Your furnace is having to work harder to keep your home warm, so it requires more energy to operate. It may only take a small repair to substantially lower your bills.
You Smell Gas
Gas leaks should never be left unattended. If you notice the smell of gas in your home, get it taken care of right away. You can contact your gas company to find the source of the leak. If it’s coming from the furnace, we are always available for emergency furnace repair.
Your Lights Flicker When the Heat Kicks on
If your lights flicker when your furnace turns on, that’s a sign of an electrical issue. You may also hear buzzing or humming noises when the furnace is running. These electrical issues put you home at risk of fire and other damages. Our furnace repair services eliminate those concerns so you can protect your family.
Your Furnace Runs Constantly
Your furnace should only run until your home reaches the desired temperature. Then it should shut off for a while and come back on as the temperature declines. If your furnace never shuts off, that’s a sign you’re in need of furnace repair. Something isn’t telling the unit to turn off, or the unit is constantly running because of efficiency issues. Either way, we’ll be there to get your furnace in proper working order.
