Six Signs You Should Schedule Furnace Repair

Not sure if your furnace is working right? While sudden breakdowns are usually the most obvious sign, there are a few warning signs to look out for—from loud noises and odd smells to higher than usual energy bills.

Be proactive about keeping your furnace in good shape by watching for these signs of trouble. Putting off furnace repair only makes the situation worse, setting you up for catastrophic breakdowns and ever-higher heating bills as your heating system continues to struggle or lose efficiency.

1. Higher heating costs

Is your wallet feeling the pinch from unexpectedly high energy bills? It could be time to schedule your furnace a professional checkup! If you’re seeing strangely higher expenses compared to normal, a problem could be reducing energy efficiency. Don’t wait until winter sets in to confirm your suspicions—get a professional opinion from your local heating expert at A-1 United Heating, Air & Electrical.

2. Inconsistent heating in your home

Noticing large differences in the temperature between rooms of your home could mean that something isn’t quite right with your furnace. If you suspect there’s a problem, it may be due to leaking ductwork or an obstruction somewhere in the system. An HVAC technician can provide advice about whether repair service is enough—or if total replacement is ultimately the more cost-effective option.

3. Unpleasant smells

Have you noticed an odd smell coming from your furnace? It might be time to investigate. If it’s a musty scent, water may have leaked and caused mold growth. On the other hand, a burning odor often signals an electrical issue like damaged wiring, and needs immediate attention.

4. Loud noises

Keep your heating system running smoothly and safely by listening for any unusual banging, hissing or rattling noises. Something could be loose or damaged, which could impact other parts of your furnace. If you hear anything unexpected, don’t delay—contact an expert HVAC technician at A-1 United right away to prevent further damage.

5. Short cycling

Short cycling is a telltale sign of potential problems with your furnace. This annoying problem leads to uncomfortable temperatures or higher energy bills and could be indicative of overheating. Maybe the filter is dirty, the flame sensor is dirty or the furnace itself is improperly sized. This adds extra system wear and tear. You can reverse some of the damage of daily use and keep things running smoothly by investing in regular furnace maintenance.

6. Leaking water

If you’ve noticed a puddle forming near your furnace, don’t wait to address this potential issue. While it’s not an immediate cause for concern, the water may be signaling that either the condensate drain line is clogged or there could even be a break in one of its lines. Don’t hesitate—take action now and ensure your heating system operates safely and effectively.

Does My Heating System Need Repair or Do I Need a New Furnace?

When it comes to a faulty furnace, you may be left wondering whether repair or replacement is the best option.

How can you ensure your money isn’t going down the drain prematurely with constant heating repair while also reducing potential problems? You can do that with routine furnace maintenance. By scheduling regular inspections and tune-ups of your HVAC system, you can help keep it running at its best for as long as possible.

However, if your furnace is already starting to lose efficiency or showing signs of failing, routine maintenance may not be enough, and it could be time to invest in furnace installation. Ultimately, when deciding whether to keep your old furnace or install a new one you will need to consider key factors such as cost-effectiveness and energy efficiency before making a decision.

It may be better to repair your furnace when…

  • The unit is still under warranty.
  • The furnace is under 15 years old and the repair is relatively minor.
  • The furnace has never been repaired before.

Great job by all. They were careful of the landscape replacing the A/C unit. Inside the heating system was replaced and the fit and finish was great. Explained the operation of everything. They came back two weeks later and checked out the operation of the systems plus installation. The tech was here over an hour checking out everything. New system is quiet. This is a company that care about its customer. We highly recommend A-1.
