Does Your Furnace Need Maintenance?
The answer to “Does my furnace need maintenance?” is always YES! Every furnace needs regular maintenance to ensure that it is functioning properly, presents no fire or health hazards and is as energy efficient as possible. But aside from regular annual maintenance, there may be times when your furnace needs attention immediately.
Signs Your Furnace Needs Attention
To avoid any significant inconvenience or discomfort in your home, you should call HVAC professionals for immediate furnace maintenance if:
- Your Furnace is Making Strange Noises or Odors
Your furnace should maintain a comfortable temperature without any signs that it’s working. If you can hear it making odd noises or smell it, something’s not right.
- Your Heat System Cycles On/Off Frequently
If your heating system is kicking on and off frequently, you may have a broken thermostat. In addition to making for a house that’s too hot or too cold, a broken thermostat can result in high energy usage and bigger bills.
- Your Furnace Has a Yellow Flame
The pilot flame should be steady and blue, which signals a very hot, pure burn. If the flame is yellow, you may have dirt in the burner, and that’s not very energy-efficient, either.
Some furnace repairs are simply inconvenient, but others can be dangerous if you don’t have the right training. It’s best to leave furnace maintenance to qualified professionals like the licensed HVAC technicians at R & R Heating & Air.
