7 Signs That Your Furnace Needs Repairs

Furnaces are one of the most popular heating options for residential and commercial property owners. Not only are they inexpensive to operate, but they also can heat up a space fast.

Although these systems are extremely reliable, you can expect that they will need to be repaired or serviced from time to time. Just like with any heating system, there are a variety of issues that can arise with a furnace. When they do, you can count on our team to provide a fast and effective solution.

Be sure to call for furnace repair right away when you notice:

  • The furnace won't turn on
  • The furnace's pilot light won't stay lit
  • The furnace turns on, but provides little to no heat
  • The blower runs continuously
  • The furnace operates too noisily
  • The thermostat doesn't seem to be working
  • The furnace smells like natural gas or burning metal (this is an emergency—turn off the furnace and call for service!)

Often, the best way to deal with these issues is to repair them. However, if your system is over 15 years old, requires frequent repairs, or is declining in its efficiency, it might be time to consider a replacement. Our experts will be able to inspect your system and provide you with honest advice about how to proceed.

The Importance of Furnace Maintenance

Regular furnace maintenance is imperative for the safety and comfort of your home. It is recommended that an HVAC specialist inspect your exhaust on a regular basis to ensure that dangerous fumes are being expelled from the home. Air ducts and vents should be checked for leaks, tears, or excessive buildup of debris. We recommend that you schedule a furnace maintenance appointment at least once per year in the fall to keep your system in good repair.

Furnace Safety Warning: Cracked Heat Exchangers

If the reasons above are not enough to convey the importance of timely furnace repairs and annual furnace maintenance, this should: gas furnaces that are poorly maintained are more likely to develop a serious problem with a component called a heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is a set of metal coils that transfers heat from your furnace into your home without passing on harmful carbon monoxide (CO) gas, which is produced as a byproduct of the combustion of natural gas. If a furnace heat exchanger develops a crack due to lack of maintenance, those toxic fumes could leak into the air you breathe and cause carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be fatal. Because carbon monoxide is a colorless and odorless gas, CO poisoning symptoms often go unnoticed until it is too late.

The best thing you can do it not take any risks. Have your furnace inspected at the beginning of the season once per year to ensure the safety of everyone in your home. It is also a good idea to install a carbon monoxide detector on each floor of your home for added peace of mind.

Who Fixes Sump Pumps?

Furnace Repair FAQ

Why is it still so cold in here even though my furnace is running?

If it seems like your furnace is running constantly but your home is still cold, you definitely have cause to be concerned - you’re paying a lot of money in energy for very little payoff. You might need to have your furnace repaired, but before you call us, check the following: 1) Is your furnace filter dirty? If it looks clogged, switch it out for a new one. 2) Are all of your return air vents open and unobstructed? If not, open them and/or move furniture, curtains, and other items that may be impeding airflow out of the way. 3) Is your thermostat set correctly? Make sure it’s set to “heat” and “auto”. If none of these seem to be the problem, you may have damaged air ducts or you may need to add insulation to your home. It may also be possible that your furnace is improperly sized for your space. A heating technician can help you address these issues.

Why does my furnace smell like it’s burning?

If you have noticed an odd burning smell after turning on your furnace for the first time in several months, you’re likely just smelling burning dust. The smell should quickly dissipate after a few minutes. If the burning odor smells like plastic or ozone, your furnace may be overheating. Turn it off and call for repairs ASAP.

Why does my furnace have rust on it? Is that a problem?

Rust on your furnace could just be a sign that your furnace is getting old, but if your furnace is newer, be wary of any corrosion. This could signal an issue with poor venting of gases that is causing the metal to weaken. If this is left unchecked and the damage spreads to your heat exchanger, you could potentially have a dangerous situation with a carbon monoxide leak. It’s better to be safe and have a technician inspect your furnace if you notice anything that doesn’t look right.
