Our technicians are highly-trained, and ready to take care of issues with your furnace that come up when you’re having difficulty keeping your home warm.

Signs of Furnace Trouble

Your furnace can show signs of trouble before it stops providing heat for your home completely. It’s important to pay attention to potential problems with your furnace, so that you can fend off the need for emergency services. Common signs of furnace issues include:

Higher Utility Costs

If you have rising utility costs, one issue could be that your furnace is not as efficient as it could be. Check over your utility bill, and look at your usage from year to year. When usage goes way up, it is probably an issue with your furnace. Get your system serviced to keep your furnace efficient during the cold weather months.

Noticeable Cold Spots

Your furnace should be able to keep your entire home warm, without noticeable cold spots forming. If you find a cold spot, your system may not be able to keep up with the heating needs of your home.

Each Room is Different Temperatures

Different temperatures throughout your home can mean your thermostat isn’t working properly, something is wrong with the air flow of your system, or your furnace can’t produce enough heat to keep you warm. You may have blocked vents without knowing it, or need to have your ductwork cleaned.

The System is Short Cycling

A furnace system that turns on and off without warming up your home is called short cycling. There could be an electrical problem with your furnace, fuel issues, or any number of problems causing the short cycling. If your system keeps turning on and off without bringing the temperature up, it’s time to call for a furnace repair. Short cycling wastes energy, without making your home more comfortable.

Odors and Sounds

Any strange sounds or odors coming from your furnace need to be investigated further. Your air filters could simply be dirty, or there could be a fuel leak that needs to be addressed with an emergency call. Loud banging noises may indicate a crack in your heat exchanger, while a loose screw can make rattling or clanking noises. For any odors or sounds, turn your system off and contact us for help to address the problem.

How to Know When to Repair or Replace

It’s important to pay attention to your furnace and how often it needs to be repaired, as this will help you determine when it is time to replace your existing furnace. When you have frequent repairs, it can cost you more to fix your furnace than it will to replace it. You can expect a furnace to last up to 20 years with good maintenance. If your system is more than 15 years old and continually breaks down, you probably need to have your furnace replaced.

If you neglect to service your furnace on a regular basis, repairs can become more common. The efficiency of your furnace will be tested, and this will give you a better idea of how expensive it is to run your system when it’s not working efficiently. If your furnace is repaired but still isn’t efficient, you will likely need to replace your furnace. It’s a good idea to check the age of your furnace first to see if the lack of efficiency and number of repairs makes sense for your system. If its under 15 years old, repairs and regular maintenance could help your furnace get up to efficiency standards.
