Common Signs You Need Furnace Repair
Most furnaces exhibit signs they need a repair. Identifying them early on can help prevent a more serious repair, or even premature replacement, down the road. If you notice any of the following issues, contact an HVAC technician to inspect the unit.
A Lack of Heat
If there’s little or no heat coming from the furnace, it’s obviously not doing its job. First, check the air filter to see if it’s dirty or clogged, and change it if necessary. Then, make sure the thermostat is set to “heat” mode. If those tips don’t work, contact Baggett Heating & Cooling. Issues that can lead to a lack of heat include a malfunctioning thermostat, a unit that’s too big or small for your home, air duct leaks, a lack of maintenance and inefficiencies due to old age and wear and tear.
Aside from the gentle hum of your furnace running a cycle, they are relatively quiet. Any strange or loud noises should be inspected by a professional. Banging, rattling or whining noises can indicate a broken or loose part or issues with the heat exchanger, blower motor or other components.
High Energy Bills
If your monthly energy bills suddenly skyrocket with no corresponding weather event, your furnace may be malfunctioning. A malfunctioning furnace will cause the unit to run longer to properly heat your home, which can lead to increased wear and tear and higher energy bills.
If your heater is struggling to properly heat your entire home or causing other comfort issues, it may need a repair. Cold spots in certain rooms, uneven heating or a lack of heating altogether are signs your furnace isn’t operating properly.
Poor Air Quality
If your home’s indoor air quality worsens, your furnace could be the culprit. Improving air quality can be as easy as changing the air filter or something more serious such as a malfunctioning furnace that needs to be repaired or replaced.
Water pooling up under or near your furnace should be checked out immediately by a technician. Water leaks can eventually lead to mold which can damage your home and cause health issues. A common cause of water leaks is a clogged condensate drain or a leaky humidifier.
Yellow or Flickering Flame
If your furnace is old, it likely has a pilot light. If the light is yellow instead of blue or it’s flickering, your unit’s burner could be malfunctioning. This could be a serious issue, as improper combustion can lead to carbon monoxide.
