Furnace Repair - 5 Red Flags That Indicate Your Furnace May Have a Problem
A furnace may begin to lose efficiency with consistent use over the years, particularly if you ignore basic maintenance. Here are five signs that indicate a fault in the furnace. If you identify any of these signs, have it checked by a heating professional.
1. The furnace fails to turn on
There couldn’t be a more obvious sign that your furnace needs repair than this. If your furnace will not come on at all, then you definitely need to have it checked. There could be various reasons why your furnace won’t function: broken thermostat, faulty safety device, tripped circuit breaker etc.
2. Your energy bills are shooting up
If you notice that your energy bills are higher than usual, it is probably due to the inefficient performance of your furnace. It is advisable to get a professional to examine the problem and get it fixed as soon as possible.
3. There is cool air coming out of your furnace
Sounds strange, doesn’t it? Why would your furnace blow cool air? Well, that’s because it isn’t working properly. Furnaces may deliver cold air immediately when switched on but this should last for only a couple of seconds. If your furnace fails to blow out warm air even after a couple minutes have passed, it needs to be checked for repair.
4. You notice a flashing yellow light through the front panel
Do you notice a strange yellow light when looking inside through the front panel of your device? If yes, then you need to call a technician immediately. A flashing light indicates a problem and the error code can be diagnosed by a furnace repair professional. The style and brand of your furnace will have unique flash codes that are easily isolated by a pro.
5. There is a strange smell in the air when the furnace is in use
When you first turn on the furnace to heat the room, you might notice a slight burning smell in the first couple of seconds. This is normal and does not really indicate a problem with the furnace. However, if the furnace continues to give off a strange smell at any other time, it may be a problem.
Try and be alert about any musty, burning, metallic or other strange smell during the functioning of your furnace.
