8 Signs You Might Need Furnace Repair

Should you call for furnace repair? Maybe it’s that extra sweater you had to wear all night. Maybe it’s the strange hum you heard while walking by the basement stairs. When in doubt, check this list for the top eight signs you should call Connectionz for furnace repair.

1. Your Heating Bills Skyrocket

You used to be able to predict how much you’d spend in heating bills every winter.

Not anymore.

Now you notice that every month the heating bills get higher than the last, and not just by a few dollars. That’s a sure sign your furnace isn’t performing as efficiently as it should, and we can help diagnose the reason.

2. Some Parts of Your Home Are Hot, Others Are Cold

Your furnace might be working fine, but is the ductwork in need of repair? This could be the reason behind the high heating bills, especially if some parts of your home are cold while other areas are hot.

Either way, it’s good for us to check out the system to resolve the problem.

3. You Continually Find Yourself Setting the Temperature Higher

You can’t stop turning up the heat! No matter what you set the temperature to, you always seem to need to crank it higher. That’s a sure sign it’s time for furnace repair.

4. You Hear Strange Noises

Your furnace shouldn’t make loud noises or strange sounds. Banging, clanking and clanging are signs of a problem.

5. Your Air Quality Has Dropped

Dusty air isn’t good for your respiratory system. If changing the furnace filter doesn’t help, call a professional.

6. Your Furnace Never Stops Running

If your furnace runs nonstop, you’ll see a spike in utility bills! We can find the source of the problem quickly.

7. You Smell Fuel

This is an emergency! Turn off the heat and call us right away. We may suggest you vacate the house until we can contain any active fuel leaks and guarantee it’s safe for you to return.

8. You Can’t Remember the Last Furnace Service Appointment

As a rule, you should have your furnace serviced at least annually. If you can’t remember the last time you had this done, schedule an appointment now and avoid all these other symptoms.
