As we approach the upcoming winter months, it is important to have your furnace working at peak performance. Regularly checking your unit for any signs of underperformance is crucial, but sometimes it’s difficult to know what you’re looking for. If you notice the heating system making unusual sounds, emitting a strange odour or providing uneven heating, it could be time to inquire about furnace repair services.
Unusual Noises: While all furnaces generally make some noise, you may notice the unit is making some new sounds that seem out of place. This could be a sign that the furnace has an internal problem, something that’s best caught early. Ignoring unusual heating system noises could lead to extreme damage or a breakdown of the unit, ultimately making the furnace repair more expensive.
Strange Smell: A furnace should be expected to circulate clean, fresh air throughout your home, but a bad odour emanating from the unit is an indication of a heating system problem. A foul scent could be due to a bacteria build-up or simply a component of the unit that’s been overworked. No matter the reason, a strange smell is a clear sign your furnace is in need of a professional heating checkup.
Uneven Heating: If you’re noticing cold spots throughout the home, a furnace issue may be the culprit. It’s important to make sure to check the furnace filter on a regular basis because a clogged filter can restrict airflow and cause uneven heating. If that doesn’t help, there could be a deeper issue that requires professional heating service.
