Recognizing the Need for Residential Furnace Repair
Of course, before you can call us, you need to know there’s a problem to begin with. Many furnace problems are quite evident, but that’s not always the case. In fact, you could have a problem with your furnace for quite some time and be completely unaware of it.
Unfortunately, even if you don’t realize that a problem exists, it could still be costing you money or leading to less comfortable conditions in your home than there would be with a fully functioning system. You’ll also probably end up needing emergency repairs. If you want to avoid that type of situation, though, you’ll need to know how to spot early signs of a furnace problem.
What to Watch For
I bought this product in February when my furnace was having issues. The repairman was fast and helpful. He quickly explained my options, offered to call his boss, and told me I could compare prices and services before making up my mind. He fixed my furnace, in the interim and gave me a very reasonable price. I felt I could trust this dealer and will continue to call them for all future service.
A good indication that you may have something wrong with your residential furnace is uneven heat in different areas of the house. A system that isn’t working quite right might not be providing heat equally to all areas of your home. In order to check for this, you may want to get some thermometers to place in different parts of your house so that you’ll know for sure if the temperature is consistent throughout.
Also, if your house is comfortable but the furnace seems to be running all of the time, there is probably something wrong. A furnace that’s working properly should stay on until your home reaches the temperature set on the thermostat and then shut off until the indoor temperature dips below that. If your system can’t seem to get the indoor temperature up to that point, it’s not working the way that it should and you should call for assistance.
Even if you don’t notice any of these physical signs, you should pay close attention to your energy bill over time. Any sudden increases that can’t be accounted for by a rise in the rates should tip you off that your furnace heating system may be using more energy than it should. A system that needs extra energy to get the same amount of work done isn’t running efficiently and there’s usually an underlying problem that requires professional repairs to remedy.
