Spring is just around the corner, but not here just yet. It’s still time to keep your furnace on and in good repair. But how do you know if your furnace is in good repair? You don’t want to be caught off guard in the cold of the night with a furnace that stops working.
To keep your home warm, it is important to know when you need furnace repair before it becomes a larger issue. Here are a few things to look for that will indicate that you do indeed need a furnace repair:
- Low Heat – The most basic indication that you need furnace repair is a furnace that won’t keep your home warm. If your furnace isn’t keeping up, then it’s time to call a furnace repair company to have it looked at.
- Smells – If you notice a smell coming from your furnace that you’ve never noticed before or that is persistent, you likely need furnace repair.
- Noises – You will likely be able to hear your furnace initially turn on, but the noise should stop there. Any kind of grinding, squealing, or clunking should be reported to a furnace contractor to be properly addressed.
- Carbon Monoxide Alarm – Furnaces have carbon monoxide detectors built in to them. If your detector goes off, it is important to immediately turn off your furnace, evacuate the home, and contact a repair company.
