Signs That You Need Furnace Repair
Furnaces will often let you know when they’ll soon be requiring repairs. Some of those signs include:
Rising Heating Bill
If your heating bill is steadily rising each month, you may have also noticed that your furnace isn’t heating your room as quickly as it should be. These two issues go hand in hand because your heating bills rise when your heater takes longer to bring your house up to the set temperature.
Not Enough Warm Air
Not enough warm air coming from your furnace is one of the most obvious and concerning sign of needed furnace repairs. If this is the case in your home, call a professional immediately. A furnace that isn’t doing its sole job of heating your home is of no use to you and will continue to rack up high energy bills.
Loud Banging Noises
Loud banging noises coming from your furnace could indicate that the burners within your furnace are dirty and need of cleaning in order to work properly. Banging noises are indicative that damage could be taking place within your furnace and, if left unattended, can crack the heat exchanger and lead to a very dangerous issue.
When working properly, your furnace should have no issues reaching the set temperature and maintaining it. When issues arise where your home’s temperature is higher or lower than where it is set, it’s a sure sign that repairs should be performed.
Outside of when your furnace kicks on for the first time of the season, you shouldn’t notice any smells coming from your furnace. If you do, it’s a reason to be cautious going forward. If the smell persists, you might have a clogged filter or dirty air ducts.
What if Your Furnace is Beyond Repairs?
Sometimes it makes more sense to replace your broken-down furnace with a new, energy-efficient model. You may consider installation of a new furnace if:
- Your current furnace is over 15 years old
- Repairs are more expensive than a replacement
- There is a carbon monoxide leak present
- Your home’s energy bills rise rapidly
