You’re probably using your furnace quite a lot to keep warm these days, which is all well and good. However, it also means more wear and tear on the system, which is something you shouldn’t ignore. More wear and tear means a greater chance of problems occurring, so you should keep an eye out for some signs that your furnace is in trouble. Let’s take a look at some of the signs that your furnace is in need of repair.
You probably know by this point what your furnace is supposed to sound like. So if the furnace suddenly starts making strange noises during operation, you really shouldn’t ignore it. Odd noises often indicate some sort of issue with the system, one that could be minor or serious depending on the noise. Booming on startup means your burner assembly is probably clogged. Grinding means that your air handler is possibly in danger of failing. If you hear anything strange coming from the furnace at all, call a professional to look at it.
Higher Heating Bills
Your heating bills are obviously going to go up the more you use your system. However, if your bills are spiking for no apparent reason, that’s a sign that something might be wrong. Call a professional if your heating bills don’t seem to correspond with how much you’re actually using the system.
One of the most obvious signs that your furnace is in trouble is if it isn’t heating as well as it should be. There could be any number of reasons why this is so, none of them good. So make sure that you call for repairs if you start to notice a substantial drop in heating output.
