Furnace Warning Signs
Regular furnace maintenance can reduce energy costs by improving efficiency. Without it, your system can fail and increase the cost of operation. It’s important to recognize the signs that it’s time for maintenance.
Dirty Filters – One of the first signs that your furnace needs attention is when the filters get dirty. They get clogged, which reduces the airflow and makes the furnace work harder while still not being able to circulate the heat properly.
Thermostat problems – If the thermostat doesn’t work properly, it can cause the home to get too cold or too hot and lead to the fan malfunctioning.
Uneven heating – If you notice that some rooms are warmer than others or that the house doesn’t stay a consistent temperature, you could have one of several issues.
Broken Parts – When a part wears out because of normal operation, it can lead to further damage.
Ignition Issues – If there’s an issue with your pilot or ignition, it can cause the unit to shut off and not warm the air.
Increased Utility Bills – If you notice your monthly utility bills have increased, it could indicate that your furnace isn’t working as well and that underlying problems exist.
