Signs Your Furnace is Breaking

Jun 24, 2017 | Uncategorized

Is your furnace ready to get you through the winter? If you were having problems with your furnace last winter, chances are those problems haven’t gone away. The reason that so many homeowners need emergency heating repair during cold spells isn’t a coincidence. It isn’t a cosmic conspiracy – it’s because most homeowners ignore obvious signs of a problem. Fear of expensive repair costs keep most people from fixing tiny problems. Don’t let this happen to you! If your furnace is exhibiting any of the following 3 signs of failure, call your local heating repair company right!

Weird Noises

When a furnace turns on, it’s supposed to make a little bit of noise. Even the most advanced systems aren’t completely quiet. However, if your furnace is making clunking, whirring, squeaking, or other sounds, don’t assume this is normal operational sounds. These are signs that something isn’t right and your furnace needs professional attention right away.

Odd Smells

The first time you turn your furnace on, it’s likely that you’ll get a smoky smell. This is normal and not cause for concern. What isn’t normal is if the smell persists after a few cycles. It’s also not normal for smoke to come from the unit. If you have a gas-powered furnace and detect the smell of gas, leave the house immediately and call your local HVAC repair company.

Inconsistent Heating

If your furnace isn’t heating as well as it used to, check the filter. A dirty filter can cause inconsistent heating problems. Clogged air ducts or vents can do this too. If these components of your system are clean, the problems could be with a mechanical part of your furnace. Pick up the phone and call Omega Heating & Air.
