The furnace in your home is extremely important as it is responsible for keeping your home warm during the cold winter months. While a furnace can last for a very long period of time, it does require maintenance and repairs from time to time. There are several situations that could be an indication that your furnace is in need of repair or servicing.
Increasing Energy Bills
While energy bills can increase for a variety of factors, including changes in weather, if you notice that your bills are higher than they have ever been in the past, it could be an indication that you need to call a professional for furnace servicing. Higher energy bills are an indication that your furnace is not working as efficiently. A technician will be able to come to your property and complete a tune-up and cleaning that can help it to start working efficiently again.
If your furnace is making strange noises, or if it sounds as if it is turning on and off all day long, it is another indication that you should call a technician immediately. If it is making clunking noises or seems to be working too hard, it could be an indication that a repair or replacement is necessary. The technician will be able to diagnose the problem and have it fixed immediately.
One of the biggest concerns with a furnace is if the flame appears to be yellow as opposed to blue. If you have a yellow flame, it could be an indication that the furnace is releasing carbon monoxide. If this is the case, you should call a technician immediately to make sure the furnace is not leaking any carbon monoxide.
