Furnaces are the heating systems of choice for many Western Massachusetts homeowners, as they provide efficient, reliable heating even on very cold days. Like all machines, though, furnaces do break down on occasion, and because they serve such an essential function, those issues can quickly become big problems. If you’re running into issues with your furnace, you’ll need to have it professionally serviced as soon as possible.
Signs of a Furnace Service Need
Sometimes, furnace problems are obvious: if your furnace won’t start, it needs to be fixed or replaced. Other issues may be as subtle as draftiness in the home, cold air coming from the vents or uneven heating. You may notice dust coming from vents, indicating that the ducts need to be cleaned. Incorrect temperature readings on your thermostat may be indicative of a control issue. Even excessive noise when the system is running can be a sign of a serious issue.
Beyond those comfort-related issues, a poorly functioning furnace will tend to run less efficiently. If you notice a sudden spike in your heating bills, a maintenance problem is likely to blame.
Even if your furnace only has a minor issue, it’s important to get it fixed right away before it can turn into a major problem. If you already have a major problem, of course, fixing it is all the more urgent. Either way, you’ll need to give us a call right away.
