Furnace Repairs: 4 Signs That You Need to Schedule Repair Service
As the Denver weather becomes cooler, you might be gradually becoming more dependant on your home’s furnace.
Four Signs That Your Furnace Needs Repairs
It is important that your furnace is in working order as the season becomes colder.
Staying ahead of furnace repairs can help you lower service costs and prevent damage to your unit, keeping it working when you need it most.
Your furnace should never leak. While a gas leak is significantly more concerning than a water leak, both issues should be addressed by a professional HVAC technician as soon as possible. Look near, and under, your furnace for water pools. This problem is almost always caused by a clogged condensate line, which requires a thorough knowledge of both plumbing and furnaces to fix.
Is your furnace turning on and off repeatedly? It is known as cycling, and it’s a sign that your furnace is operating inefficiently and running up your utility bills (which we will discuss in more detail in the next section).
While a single problem typically causes water leaks, cycling has a variety of causes that can be difficult to diagnose on your own. If your furnace is cycling on and off throughout the day, then give our HVAC company a call, and we will work to find a solution as quickly as possible.
High Utility Bills
Nobody wants to pay more than they need to every month. If your utility bills have been steadily increasing each month without an attendant increase in your heating needs, then you probably need furnace repairs. The problem could be that the ductwork has become blocked, or your furnace may have a broken internal component. Our talented HVAC technicians will be able to diagnose the problem, repair your furnace, and help you keep more money in your bank account each month.
Unusual Furnace Noises
Odd noises are one of the most evident signs that something is amiss with your furnace. You know which noises your furnace usually makes, and scapes, thumps, and bangs certainly aren’t normal (and if they are, then you need to call us for furnace repairs immediately!). If you hear an odd noise in the middle of the night, or if your furnace is making strange sounds whenever it’s running, then turn the unit off and call our technicians. Even if the problem is minor, you don’t want to risk damage to your home or endanger your family.
