Signs Your Furnace Needs To Be Repaired
When winter weather arrives, you want to ensure your furnace is up to the task of keeping your house warm. To avoid having to endure a cold house, watch for these signs that can indicate your system needs to be repaired:
- Short Cycling: If the unit runs for less than three minutes before it shuts off. This can indicate a malfunctioning heat exchanger or an issue with your thermostat.
- Irregular Flames: If you look at the burners in your unit, they should have relatively even rows of flames. They should not be uneven or lean toward the back. If they do, it could signal dirty burners, or it could be a more serious problem, like a cracked heat exchanger. This can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning and needs to be addressed right away.
- Unusual Sounds: If your forced-air system starts to make rumbling, popping, or whistling noises when the unit is running it could indicate a number of problems.
- Cracked Heat Exchanger: If you experience frequent headaches or flu-like symptoms, it could be due to a cracked heat exchanger, which can lead to a carbon monoxide leak. This can lead to serious health issues and should be inspected by a professional immediately.
Common Furnace Problems
Occasionally your furnace might encounter issues that will require professional repairs. Some common problems can include:
- Lack Of Maintenance: Failing to schedule performance maintenance visits with our certified professionals can lead to a number of issues with your unit. To avoid this, have our technicians perform a tune-up at least once a year.
- Dirty Or Clogged Filters: Dirty filters can cause your system to malfunction and lead to poor indoor air quality. You can reduce the strain on your unit by replacing your filters regularly, about every three months.
- Mechanical Wear And Tear: An aging system can develop more frequent issues and lose efficiency. If this happens you should consult our technicians to determine if it is more cost-effective to have the system replaced.
- Malfunctioning Thermostat: If the temperature in your house does not match the setting on your thermostat, schedule an appointment with our experts to determine the cause of the issue.
- Inadequate Airflow: Disrupted air flow can cause your unit to overheat.
- Carbon Monoxide Leak: One of the most serious issues with your unit is a carbon monoxide leak. If you notice the pilot light turn from blue to yellow, or an excessive amount of condensation on your windows, or you start to feel ill in any way, you need to immediately leave your property and call the professionals for help.

What To Expect During a Heater Tune-up?
Our experts recommend having your heater tuned up at least once a year. During these routine services, you can expect a technician to perform the following tasks:
- Shut off the power. This will protect you and the technician.
- Check to see how the inner components are operating. This can give you peace of mind that your unit is operating correctly.
- Recommend the replacement of any worn-out parts or belts. This can help prevent parts from breaking later, requiring another service visit.
