Symptoms of Repair

Common Symptoms of a Furnace in Need of Repair

There are a few things you should look for that will tell you your furnace may be in need of repair. These are the 7 common symptoms that your furnace is in need of repair:

  1. The furnace doesn’t turn on: If your furnace isn’t turning on, there is something wrong with it. This could be something as simple as a thermostat issue, or be a problem with the power supply or pilot light.
  2. Unusual noises: If your furnace is making strange sounds, such as banging, rattling, or squealing, it may indicate a problem with the blower motor, burner, or other components.
  3. Poor heating performance: If your furnace is struggling to heat your home adequately or is producing uneven heat, it may indicate a problem with the thermostat, ductwork, or blower motor.
  4. Increased energy bills: If you notice a sudden spike in your energy bills, it may indicate that your furnace is working harder than it should due to a malfunctioning component or poor maintenance.
  5. Bad odors: If you smell gas, oil, or burning smells coming from your furnace, it may indicate a gas leak or a problem with the ignition system.
  6. Yellow or flickering pilot light: A pilot light that appears yellow or flickers frequently may indicate that your furnace is not burning fuel efficiently and may require repair.
  7. Frequent cycling: If your furnace turns on and off frequently, it may indicate a problem with the thermostat or a malfunctioning component.

If you notice any of these symptoms or suspect that your furnace is not functioning properly, it’s essential to call a professional technician to diagnose and repair the issue before it leads to further damage or safety concerns.

Our Process

Furnace Repair Process

The process for repairing a furnace will vary depending on the type of issue and extent of any damage. Here is a general overview of the steps involved in furnace repair:

  • Diagnostic assessment: The first step is to diagnose the issue with the furnace. One of our professional technicians will examine the furnace, check the controls, and test the electrical connections to determine the cause of the problem.
  • Repair plan and estimate: Once the issue has been identified, our technician will create a repair plan and provide an estimate for the cost of the repairs.
  • Part acquisition: If parts are needed to fix the furnace, our HVAC tech will order them and schedule a time to return and complete the repair.
  • Repair: The technician will return with the necessary tools and parts to repair the furnace. They will shut off the power supply to the furnace, remove the damaged components, and replace them with the new ones.
  • Testing and Calibration: Once the repair is complete, our technician will test the furnace to ensure it is functioning correctly. They will check the thermostat settings, the temperature output, and other critical components.
  • Clean up: After repairs are made and testing is completed, our technician will clean up any debris and ensure that the furnace area is clean and safe.
  • Follow-up: Our technician will follow up with you to ensure that the furnace is still working correctly and to answer any questions you may have.

Overall, furnace repair can take a few hours to a few days, depending on the complexity of the issue and the availability of parts. It’s essential to have your furnace repaired promptly to prevent further damage and ensure your family’s safety and comfort.
