Is Your Furnace Begging for a Repair Specialist?
Soon you’ll probably turn the heat on soon since the temperatures are dropping. By listening to your heating system and calling an HVAC professional for inspection, you may prevent unnecessary furnace repairs down the road. Honestly, no one wants to be on a waitlist for replacement parts for their furnace, especially when it’s cold.
Be proactive and look for these warning signs when you use your furnace:
If your furnace is making a strange noise, aside from the normal heating sounds, then it is better to call a furnace repair professional for help to diagnose the problem. A banging noise could be a faulty blower wheel or blower motor. Have the sound checked as soon as possible to avoid possible additional HVAC repairs.
Lack of heat:
Do you notice your heating system doesn’t seem to be keeping up? It’s frequently a sign that your furnace needs an inspection for damage or problems. There may be airflow or combustion problems, or a combination of the two.
Yellow or orange flame:
When the fire burns yellow or orange, it means that it’s not burning fuel efficiently, which is expensive and potentially deadly. You may notice that the flame flickers, and that could indicate there is a crack in the furnace’s heat exchanger. A flickering flame could mean your furnace is leaking carbon monoxide because fuel is not fully combusted. When a furnace is functioning correctly, it will burn a blue steady flicker-free flame. Getting an expert to inspect your furnace will eliminate any further damage and save your life!
The need for a repair often shows up as a lack of efficiency and higher utility costs before a total breakdown, so catch it early if you can. A small repair by a professional early on can save you money. If you own an older model heat pump and note an unusual spike in your utility bills compared to previous years, it may be time to replace it, but your HVAC pro can help you determine if that’s the case.
Dusty and arid conditions in your home may mean your furnace may not be working correctly. These conditions can cause allergies, asthma and other health concerns, but they can be corrected by having an HVAC pro inspect your furnace and repair it if needed. You may benefit by adding a humidifier or upgraded filter to your HVAC system.
