5 Signs You Need a Furnace RepairPosted On: November 21, 2017
Furnace repair is something that you often don’t want to think about. After all, you know that the repair is going to be expensive and your furnace may actually still be working to keep your home warm. However, if you overlook signs of furnace problems, you may end up with an even more costly problem, as well as a full system breakdown that leaves your family in the cold. That’s why scheduling repair services should be a priority.
If you’re noticing any of these common signs and symptoms of furnace problems, contact the professional HVAC technicians at T.E. Spall & Son to schedule a service today!
1. Uneven or Inefficient Heating
If your furnace is struggling to keep your home comfortable, when it once did the job without issue, then you may have a problem brewing. The problem can be as simple as a clogged furnace filter that needs replacing, or as complex as a burner that isn’t firing properly. A professional technician can help you narrow down the problem and repair it quickly.
2. Unusual Sounds
Your furnace isn’t silent, but you know when sounds occur that shouldn’t. If you’re hearing loud banging, whistling, or clanking—something is most likely wrong. A furnace is made up of numerous moving parts, and if those parts aren’t in sync, or start to wear down, it can cause serious and noisy problems. We would encourage you to get any unusual sounds looked at right away.
3. Unusual Smells
The only time a smell is normal is when you turn on the furnace for the first time. In these instances, the smell is the dirt and dust that is burning off after a summer of non-use. Otherwise, burning smells and metallic smells can all indicate a serious problem. Call T.E. Spall & Son at 877-591-7508 to schedule a furnace repair if abnormal smells are coming from your furnace. If you smell natural gas, leave the home immediately and call the fire department.
4. Increasing Energy Bills
If your energy bills are going up, but you haven’t changed your usage habits, the problem may be that your furnace isn’t running efficiently. Having the furnace repaired and optimized by the T.E. Spall & Son team can help put your energy bills back where they should be.
5. Weak Airflow
When the furnace is running, it should blow strongly through the vents in your home. If it feels like it’s barely blowing at all, you have a problem. This problem could be something small or it could be a problem with the belts and motors, which could turn into a full system breakdown quickly. To diagnose the heating issue you’re experiencing, contact an HVAC technician to take a closer look.
