Common Furnace Issues
It is beneficial to have your furnace cleaned and inspected at least once a year, especially before the cold winter months. This allows us to make sure your furnace is operational and provides the heat you need. Regular inspections also allow us to track the health of your furnace. We can catch small problems before they can worsen. Even with proper maintenance, though, it is important to keep an eye out for common furnace issues such as the following.
How Old Is Your Furnace?
Heating and cooling systems will naturally begin to fail with age. Most furnaces have a lifespan of 15-20 years. Even if your furnace is still running after this time, it doesn’t mean it is doing so efficiently. Your furnace could still be producing heat, but using a lot of power to do it, which can drive up your monthly utility bills. When your furnace is older, you will want to weigh the pros and cons of repairing any issues or installing a new system. If you have an older model that has already needed repeat repairs, a new furnace could be the best option for the long run.
Is Your Furnace Making Noises?
Furnaces tend to operate quietly. Unfamiliar sounds can be an indication that something isn’t working right. These sounds might include loud clanging or banging that can happen at any time. Loud noises can be a sign of several different problems, so it’s always best to call in the pros if this occurs.
Changes in the Pilot Flame
The pilot flame should be a consistent, vibrant blue. If you notice the light is yellow, this could be an indication that the gas entering the unit isn’t properly burned off. You may also notice that the flame is weak or wavy. This can be a sign that gas isn’t being burned due to poor ventilation.
If your furnace is running too long or too frequently, this can indicate an issue within the system. You’ll also want to pay attention to any irregular temperatures. If you notice anything odd with your furnace, we can help.
