HVAC Monday: Winter is Still Roaring – So Maybe You Need A Furnace Repair

<span>HVAC Monday:</span> Winter is Still Roaring – So Maybe You Need A  Furnace Repair
  • Opening Intro -

    Even though most new furnaces are reliable enough to last for several years, they will still require some occasional maintenance and repair.


Here are just a few signs that will tell you it’s time to contact a furnace repair company near you.

Your Furnace is Over 15 Years Old

A good furnace can last for over 20 years, but most units will start to lose their efficiency after 15 years. If your furnace is this old and hasn’t required any serious repairs, you might still want to have an HVAC repair contractor take a look at it. If you have had to make several repair calls for your old furnace, you should consider replacing it altogether.

Your Energy Bills Have Gotten Higher

Your monthly energy bills can tell you a lot about the state of your furnace. As long as you’ve kept your thermostat at roughly the same temperature for the past several months, your bills shouldn’t increase too much.

If they do, it could mean that your furnace is working harder than it once did to maintain a constant temperature. This is generally a sign that something is wrong and should be checked out.

Your Home Heats Unevenly

There will always be certain parts of your home that will be warmer or cooler than the rest of your house, but every room should be affected when your furnace is turned on. A room that heats up slowly compared to the rest of your home could be a sign that you have a problem with your heating ducts or your furnace.

You Notice Strange Sounds Coming From Your Furnace

Aside from a faint whoosh when your furnace is first turned on, the system should be practically silent while it runs. If you hear rattling, banging, popping, or any other strange sounds coming from your furnace, something is definitely wrong and needs to be addressed.

You Notice Strange Smells Coming From Your Heating Ducts

A burning smell coming from your furnace or heating ducts may not be an immediate cause for alarm, but it is still a sign that something has gone wrong with your HVAC system. It could be that your ducts are simply dirty and need to be cleaned, but you might have other problems that need to be addressed. Contact an HVAC repair professional just to be on the safe side.
