Signs Your Furnace Needs to Be Repaired

While a full-scale breakdown of your furnace may be obvious, the truth is that many furnace problems start small and can easily go unnoticed until they escalate into more substantial issues. Fortunately, by paying attention to your unit and keeping an eye out for certain signs and symptoms, you can diagnose a failing unit ahead of time and avoid a chilly inconvenience.

Contact a trusted furnace repair professional at the first sign of any of the following:

  • Excessive amounts of dust coming out of your furnace vents
  • A flickering or yellow pilot light
  • Weak or inconsistent airflow
  • Popping, squeaking, or grinding noises
  • Strange odors coming from your unit
  • Increased heating bills without explanation
  • Don’t Ignore a Yellow Pilot Light

If you have a natural gas furnace, check the pilot light often to make sure it is burning consistently and is a clear, blue flame. A yellow pilot light is not only a sign that your furnace needs to be repaired, but it could also be indicative of a more serious carbon monoxide leak – a poisonous gas. If your pilot light is yellow or if you notice excessive condensation, rust, or the smell of rotten eggs, shut down your furnace immediately and call a furnace repair technician immediately.

Choosing Between Electric & Natural Gas Furnaces

If you have decided to replace your existing heating system and are considering a furnace, we are here to help you select the right type of furnace for your home or commercial property. The two main types of furnaces are electric and natural gas. Each has its individual benefits and possible downsides, depending on the qualities you are looking for in a heating system.

A few factors to consider include:

Electric furnaces: Electric furnaces tend to take up less space, cost less money upfront, and last longer. However, they are often more expensive to operate than gas.

Gas furnaces: Gas furnaces are extremely effective and less expensive to operate, but they can cost more upfront. Additionally, you will need to ensure your property is set up with gas lines.
