Early Warning Signs
While we’re here to help you any time, you might be able to avoid an emergency service call if you know some of the warning signs that your furnace needs repairs. Some of these include the following:
- Unusual noise – All furnaces make a certain amount of noise while operating, but if the noises get louder, there may be a problem. A common source of an unusual noise is a cracked belt that is still functioning but may break completely at any time. A whining noise could indicate a problem with your furnace’s ignition system.
- Resetting the thermostat – It’s not unusual in winter to turn up the thermostat a few notches, but if you have to keep resetting it to stay warm, there could be a problem. It could be the thermostat, a leak in your duct work or the furnace itself.
- Rapid cycling – If your furnace is turning on and off quickly that may indicate a problem with the thermostat, the wiring or the ignition system.
- Rising utility bills – If your utility bills have gone up and the rates haven’t changed, that, along with other symptoms, could indicate a furnace problem.
