Signs of Furnace Problems to Watch out For

Gas and electric furnaces are powerful heating systems that are designed to heat quickly, efficiently, and maintain even heating throughout a home. On the off chance that your furnace is not working as well as it should be, keep a look out for the following furnace repair problems:

  • Unusually high or rising electric bills each month.
  • Loud banging noises coming from your furnace.
  • Uneven heating throughout the home.
  • Water is leaking around the furnace.
  • Heater air smells bad or foul.
  • Insufficient heating.
  • Or if your furnace is ten or more years old.

Plain and simple, furnace problems are not something you should delay is solving. Small problems could lead to gas leaks, inaccurate thermostats, or total system failure. If you notice any of the signs noted above, the best thing to do is to immediately turn off the furnace and call a HVAC professional.

Common Gas & Electric Furnace Repairs

We’ve seen it all and are eager to help. With over 40 years in the home services industry, our experience in repairing heating systems has shown us that there are several common reasons your furnace may benefit from a repair. Some of the top issues we solve are:

  • Thermostat malfunction – One of the easiest ways to slash your heating costs is to maintain your thermostat so it can give you accurate and reliable readings.
  • Clogged burner nozzle – If your furnace has ignition issues, it could indicate a clogged burner nozzle or faulty ignition.
  • Mechanical errors – These can encompass everything from broken fan motors or a drive belts that refuse to run smoothly. These are typically from normal wear and tear over the years.
  • Poor air ventilation – When the furnace’s vents are clogged or in poor condition, improving the function of your heating system can be as simple as replacing them. This has the added benefit of improving your indoor air quality.
  • Cracked heat exchanger – According to the American Gas Association, any signs of cracks in a heat exchanger or furnace requires the replacement of the unit as you could face dangerous levels of carbon monoxide.
  • Age-related furnace damages – Older furnaces may only reach 75% of the efficiency level of newer models, and they can easily encounter age-related damage such as leaky ductwork or worn parts. To ensure your furnace lasts as long as it can, consider investing in regular preventive maintenance with our Bud Matthews HVAC Maintenance Agreement.
