When you have a problem with your furnace, it’s important to call for heating repair right away. Here are some of the most common signs that you need a furnace repair completed by professional heating contractors.
Unusual Furnace Smells
An abnormal scent coming from your furnace, a smell that suddenly occurs, or one that will not disappear are signs of a problem that requires furnace service.
Trouble Getting the Furnace to Start
An aging furnace may have difficulty turning on and staying on. When your furnace needs your attention to start multiple times a day, a furnace repair
is likely required.
Strange Pilot Light Color
A blue flame is what you want to see when you look at your pilot light. If the pilot light appears differently, especially yellow, it may indicate a problem with ventilation and the need for heating repair.
When a furnace is not blowing enough heat or any heat at all, then it’s not doing the job. It’s time to schedule a furnace repair.
While furnaces do make some noises, they shouldn’t be intrusive or loud. If your furnace makes a persistent noise that is unusual, it may indicate a serious issue. Describe the noises you are hearing to your heating contractors so you can get a proper determination.
Low Air Quality
As the air in your home circulates through your furnace, it has a direct relation to the air quality you are breathing. You do not want your furnace to blow dirty, bacteria, or debris through your home as it sends heated air into the vents. Watch for excessive dust floating around your home along with frequent coughs and colds and schedule your furnace repair.
