The Most Common Signs That Your Furnace Needs Repair

We all know that you rely on your furnace to keep your home comfortably warm, yet your furnace stays off for more than half a year since it is only mainly used in the winter. Therefore, the unit can become damaged during that period without you realizing it. 

Modern home furnaces usually run off gas, electricity, or induction (a reaction of electricity and metal to create heat), producing substantial amounts of heat that feed into a ventilation system that flows through all connected rooms. If you experience any of these common signs, then your furnace may need repair.

  1. Unusual furnace odor

If there is a noticeably strong odor of fuel around the unit, an aroma that suddenly appears, or a scent that doesn’t go away after a few hours, you may have a furnace problem.

  1. Disconnected wiring or Damaged Thermostats

Well-maintained furnaces generally last between 15-20 years on average. As it ages, you may have trouble turning the unit on and keeping it running. If you must try more than once to start the system or restart your furnace throughout the day, it’s most likely in need of a repair.

  1. Inadequate heating

One of the telltale signs that a furnace needs a check-up or repair is when the unit can no longer do its job effectively. If your furnace is producing minimal to no heat regardless of your thermostat settings, schedule repairs immediately with us at Beehive Heating & Air.

  1. Poor Air Quality

A poorly maintained furnace may contain dirt, bacteria, and other particles in your home, along with the heated air. This dust can cause allergies, coughs, colds, or other respiratory problems. Your furnace has a direct impact on the air quality in your home or building since it is part of your HVAC system. Consult with our experts to get to the root of your problem if this is happening in your home or business.

  1. Unusual persistent loud noise

If you frequently hear an alarmingly loud noise, this can often be a severe indication of a problem with your unit. There are multiple reasons this might happen, but it’s best to contact a professional to diagnose and repair the sound.
