7 Warning Signs You Need a Furnace Repair
Your furnace works hard over the winter. Wear and tear can strain components and even take on damage over months when you aren’t using it. Common sources of furnace damage come from animals, water, and more. Furnaces should be maintained annually, preferably before the heating season starts.
Furnaces will typically give warning signs if they require attention. Watch for these furnace repair indicators:
1. Low or Uneven Heating
If your furnace isn’t heating your house, or the rooms are heated unevenly, then it’s not doing its job. It could be from an uncalibrated thermostat, leaking ductwork, clogged ductwork, a broken fan motor, clogged burners, or dirty air filters.
2. The Furnace Won’t Turn On
Does your furnace only turn on sometimes? As furnaces age, they can become harder to turn on. If it takes several tries to turn it on, there could be problems with the electrical components, wiring, thermostat, or heat exchanger.
3. Pilot Light Isn’t Blue
A furnace pilot light should always be blue. If the pilot is yellow, then you may have a ventilation problem. The color of the flame may change when the pilot isn’t burning efficiently. This can be from a lack of oxygen or too much carbon monoxide.
4. Strong Gas Smell or the CO Alarm Goes Off
The first time you turn on your furnace, you may smell a little bit of gas. But that odor should dissipate quickly. If it doesn’t go away, there could be a clog or even a gas leak. Gas is extremely flammable. You should turn off the gas or call your gas company and ask them to do it for you. Open up your windows and evacuate your family. Then, call an HVAC technician to find and eliminate the leak.
5. Your Furnace Turns On and Off Frequently
When your furnace turns on and off frequently, it is known as short-cycling. Short-cycling can be caused by having an overly high-capacity furnace for your home, but more likely there is a problem. Short-cycling can be caused by clogged filters, malfunctioning thermostats, or problems with the air handler or duct system.
6. Funny Noises
If your furnace is making a lot of noise that it doesn’t usually make, there may be a problem. A persistent squealing, whistling, groaning, or banging sound can signal problems with the fan, belt, or ignition system.
7. Increased Energy Bills
A sudden spike in your energy bill is one of the best indicators that something is wrong with your heater. Energy bills will let you know if a big energy inefficiency may be blocking or reducing your furnace’s heat production.
If your heater is showing any of these signs, get an experienced HVAC technician to look at and repair your furnace.
