3 Signs That Your Furnace Is In Need Of Professional Repairs

Far too many people wait until their furnace stops working before reaching out to a repair contractor. This is quite unfortunate because while not all system failures can be prevented, learning to spot the warning signs that your furnace is in need of repair can often help you to avoid a total system failure. You can learn more about these warning signs below so that you will be prepared to respond quickly the next time you are in need of furnace repair.

#1: Your Furnace Is Cycling On And Off Frequently

A furnace that is functioning efficiently will be able to heat your home to the desired temperature and maintain that temperature for a reasonable amount of time before needing to supply more heat. This will result in your furnace cycling on and off throughout the day at fairly regular intervals. However, if your furnace is not functioning properly, you may begin to notice that it is cycling on and off more frequently. This is often a result of your furnace being unable to keep up with the heat demands of your home. If you notice your furnace kicking on more frequently during periods of normal outdoor temperatures, this is a good indication that you are in need of furnace repair. Failing to contact a repair contractor at this early stage in the problem will result in your furnace continuing to be overworked and could eventually result in a system failure. 

#2: Your Furnace Rarely Cycles Off

While a furnace that frequently cycles on and off is an indication of a problem, a furnace that seems to never turn off can be a sign of an even more severe problem. This is because if your furnace is not cycling off, you are not reaching the desired temperature inside your home. Assuming that you have your thermostat set at a reasonable temperature, this could indicate that either your furnace does not have enough capacity for the size of your home or that there is a problem that is causing your furnace to operate less efficiently. Regardless of the underlying reason, this is a situation that will require the services of a professional furnace repair contractor. 

#3: Your Furnace Has Become Noticeably Louder

Many homeowners dismiss an increasingly noisy furnace as simply being old. However, the fact is, your furnace should operate at approximately the same noise level regardless of age if all of the parts in your furnace are in good working condition. If you notice that your furnace is operating more loudly than it once did, there is a good chance that a part inside your furnace needs to be replaced or repaired.

About Me

Call the HVAC Contractor and Cool Down!

When we bought our house, we had a home warranty that was good for one year. One of the first things that had to get taken care of was the air conditioner. Before we had the HVAC contractor come out, we made sure filters were changed and other basic maintenance was taken care of. The HVAC contractor that the insurance company sent out replaced the compressor and our AC is working fine now so we're glad that we did it when we did, especially because he found a major mistake in our system. You don't want to wait long when the AC goes out on a hot summer day. This blog is here to make sure you get the help you need.
