Signs That You Need Furnace Repair in Zionsville, IN

Fortunately, there are several signs that you need repairs to your heating system or furnace, and many times it can be a simple fix at a low cost. Oftentimes, you only need your furnace cleaned for it  to work properly.

Low Heating Output

If your heater just doesn’t seem to be warming as it should at a set temperature, you could need repairs to correct this. There should be good airflow that is also very warm coming from the vents in your home. The air should blow consistently and at the same temperature throughout your home.

Trouble Starting The System

Your system should start up easily when the furnace is turned on. You set your thermostat on the system to signal that the rooms are below a certain temperature. The thermostat sends a signal to the furnace that tells the gas valve to open and supply the burners with gas to turn the blower on. Then the electronic ignition or pilot light will light up inside the furnace and warm the air in it to be distributed to your home. At times, the pilot light may need to be cleaned out in order for your system to operate properly.

Strange Smells During Operation

The first few cycles that your furnace completes for the winter may be accompanied by a strange smell that is like something burning slightly. This is usual, because the dust and debris in the furnace chamber are just heating up and producing the smell, but there is no need to sound an alarm. If the smell or any other smell persists after your furnace completes two or three cycles, then it’s a signal that something is wrong. It could actually mean that your furnace is overheating, so you should turn it off and contact a repairman.

Rising Energy Costs

If you keep your thermostat on the same setting, but your energy costs are soaring higher each month and it’s not because of the cost of the gas, then there is something wrong with your furnace. Servicing it can help to make your furnace more energy-efficient by replacing or repairing items that are causing it to run more in order to maintain the same level of warmth in your home.

Your Home Is Suddenly Dusty

If you’ve been using your furnace for heat and suddenly your home seems very dusty, it’s a sign that your furnace, its components, and ductwork may be filled with dust. Most of the time, it will just need a quick cleaning and testing of the system to correct this issue.
