Common Furnace and Heating Problems that Need Repair
If your furnace is not heating as efficiently as it should be, this can be a sign of disrepair caused by irregular maintenance. Things like clogged filters, malfunctioning boiler pumps, and low heat flow can all be a sign that your furnace needs to be serviced more frequently. Constant cycling, indicated by your furnace turning on and off frequently, can also indicate a filter issue or other vent problems caused by low airflow to the furnace. Making sure your vents are clear of debris and are not blocked from the outside by furniture or other fixtures can help your furnace run at full capacity again. While it is possible to change furnace filters on your own, for more complicated furnace repairs, it’s always best to leave them up to the experts. Chad Love Services offers up-front pricing and on-site project consultation, so you will always know what to expect during your furnace maintenance and repair.
Other heating issues include overheating and thermostat issues. An overheating furnace can be a sign of old-age and other regulatory issues and indicates that you should call in the professionals. On the other hand, if your furnace seems to be out of sync with your thermostat, or isn’t quite reaching the right heat level, this may be a sign of an issue with your thermostat, not your furnace itself. Misreading sensors and damaged circuits can lead to discrepancies between your thermostat and your furnace, which can lead to increased heating costs and frustrations for you in the long run. Making sure your thermostat is regularly checked to ensure it is working correctly can help prevent problems down the road.
If your furnace is making odd noises, such as banging, clanging, squeaking, or you hear the pilot flame failing to ignite, it’s time to call in the professionals. Banging noises in your furnace can indicate ball bearing problems, as well as potential cracked interior components such as your furnace’s heat exchanger, which can lead to carbon monoxide leakage into your home. If at any point your heating ducts or furnace give off a burning or smoking smell, turn off your furnace and call Chad Love Services’ 24/7 furnace repair services. With an on-call team of furnace experts, we can help make sure your furnace gets the repairs it needs in no time. And with upfront pricing and professional consultation, you won’t be surprised by any hidden fees or charges.
