Signs Your Furnace Needs to be Repaired or Replaced

While it may seem like summer just ended, the fact is that winter is right around the corner. This makes it important that you ensure that your furnace is ready for the coming cold months by having your furnace repaired or replaced if necessary. Yet, how will you know if your furnace needs to be repaired or replaced? Here are a few of the signs you can look out for in your home.

Your Home Isn’t Heating Evenly

When your heater is running, does it seem as though some rooms are still freezing cold while others or perfectly warm or even a little hot? This is a clear indicator that something is wrong with your furnace that is preventing it from heating your home evenly.

Your Furnace Runs Non-Stop

Another sign that something is wrong with your furnace is if your heater runs non-stop. Your furnace should typically cycle on and off throughout the day as necessary to keep your home at a consistent temperature. If your furnace is running non-stop, this could either indicate a problem with your thermostat that is preventing it from registering the correct temperature, or it could indicate that your furnace is struggling to keep your home warm and will likely need to be repaired or replaced.

Your Furnace is Making You Sick

Since you began running your furnace this fall have you and your family experienced frequent headaches, sore throats, or increased indoor allergy symptoms? If so, then it is likely that your furnace needs servicing as your air filter may need changing, or your air ducts may need to be professionally cleaned. Your furnace and air ducts have had months to collect dust, debris, and other allergens that are now being spread throughout your home with the warm air from your furnace, resulting in your symptoms.

These are just a few of the signs indicating that your furnace is in need of repair or replacement. Contact us to find out about having your heater serviced or replaced if you have been experiencing problems with it.
