Signs That Your Furnace May Need Repairs

Furnaces rank among the most popular of all home heating systems, and it is not hard to understand why. When properly sized and installed, a gas or electric furnace is capable of heating most homes in a very effective and efficient manner. Like any other heating system, though, your furnace may well encounter operational problems of some kind eventually. When it does, it is necessary that you have your system repaired as soon as possible. The longer that you wait to schedule furnace repairs in Everett, WA, the worse off your furnace is likely to be. If you notice any of the warning signs discussed below, schedule service with heating repair technician on the G & S Heating Cooling & Electric team immediately.

  • Uneven heating is one of the most common, and most immediately noticeable, signs that a furnace is having operational issues. Your furnace should heat your home evenly. If it fails to do so, it is possible that the ductwork your furnace relies upon for heat distribution is compromised. There could also be a problem with the fan in your furnace, or even with the combustion chamber or heating elements therein. If your furnace is not producing sufficient heat, it really doesn’t matter if air is being distributed properly.
  • Loud operational noises may also indicate that your furnace is in distress. There are quite a few moving parts within a furnace, and you can expect to here some operational sounds as your furnace cycles on and off. If you hear a screeching or banging noise, though, you should have a professional evaluate the situation at once.
  • Skyrocketing heating costs may also mean that your heater is struggling. Just because your system is functioning, after all, is no guarantee that it is functioning properly. If your heating costs are much higher than usual, there is likely a problem with your system which is driving them up. We will get to the source of the problem, and will resolve it entirely.
