When there’s a change in your heating system, it usually indicates that something isn’t working as it should. If you suddenly notice strange noises coming from your furnace or can’t get the system to heat your home evenly, it’s often a sign you need to schedule furnace repair. Another red flag is if you’re monthly hydro bills suddenly start to increase with no apparent reason.
Hearing Strange Noises
Every heating system makes some noise, either when the burners fire up or the blower engages. However, your furnace should not be so loud that you regularly hear it. Sudden, new noises are often a sign that you need furnace repair as it can indicate problems with the blower, burners or motor.
There are a number of reasons why your furnace is not heating your home evenly. Dirty furnace filters, a block in the ventilation system or accumulation of debris within the furnace can all contribute to uneven heating. It’s important to address the problem as soon as possible to prevent a complete system breakdown or irreparable damage.
Hydro Bills are Creeping Up
If you notice that your monthly energy bills are slowly starting to creep up and can’t find any other explanation, you’ll likely need to schedule a furnace repair call. When your heating system requires service, it often works harder to keep the house warm and can quickly drive up energy costs.
If you think that your heating system isn’t working as well as it could be, make sure to call a professional heating specialist to inspect your system.
