If you ever notice anything out of the norm with your furnace, make sure to contact us. We can inspect the parts and components for any issue. Keeping the furnace operating at top performance levels can help your home to be warm and comfortable. Any sign of an issue should be looked at as soon as possible. Catching an issue at the first sign can help save time, money, and stress in the long run. Some signs can be anything from creaking noises to musty odors. If you notice that the thermostat has a significant difference between the set temperature and actual temperature, make sure to contact us.

 

A typical furnace will turn on at varying points throughout the day, depending on your heating needs. If your furnace seems to be running constantly without shutting off, it could be a sign of a faulty thermostat or more serious internal problems. In poorly insulated homes, furnaces need to work overtime to maintain the desired temperature. A furnace also may need to put in extra effort to pump air through dirty air filters and ducts.

 

Furnaces can be known for having a low, rumbling noise they give off when running. If you hear noises from your furnace that stand out, like screeching, loud bangs, and grinding. If you hear these, it is likely that the furnace needs immediate attention and repairs. Screeching noises are typically a sign of blower motors in need of repair, while other sounds can point to a range of other problems. Generally, if you hear noises beyond your blower turning on and off, call us so we can inspect it for you.

 

If your heating bill shoots up rapidly, it could indicate an issue with the furnace. Heating units that have lost efficiency need to work harder to produce the same amount of heat for your home. If your furnace turns on and off constantly, it is a good indicator that you may need furnace repair or replacement in your home. If the furnace is producing no heat, then the heater is not working properly. By having the heater inspected and maintained, you can reduce the chance the furnace goes out suddenly when you need it. This can help you keep your home warm for you and your family this winter.
