Benefits of Professional Furnace Repair
After long months of not being used, it’s not unusual to find your furnace has some minor function issues the first few times you fire it up. To help make sure those minor issues don’t become giant headaches that lead to an expensive and inconvenient unit replacement in the middle of winter, it’s best to take care of small problems as soon as they appear.
Attempting furnace repair tasks yourself might sound tempting. But once you consider the value of your time and the fact that DIY repairs could void any warranties, we’re sure you’ll agree it’s a much better use of resources to call one of our professionally trained technicians at Service Legends.
Unfortunately, some homeowners don’t realize their heater is in need of servicing until the unit stops working. Call Service Legends if you’re experiencing any of the following warning signs:
1. Unusual Smells
It’s not unusual for a furnace to smell like fuel the first time or two you turn it on in the fall. That odor typically dissipates quickly and doesn’t continue with use. However, if you are noticing a lingering odor of fuel around the heater or any unusual smell that occurs only when the heater is in use, that indicates a problem. The heater could have a buildup of dust inside or even a dangerous gas leak.
2. Discolored Pilot Light
The pilot light on a well-running heater normally appears blue. If yours is a different color, especially yellow, it may indicate a problem with ventilation. Changes in color of the pilot light could be a sign that gases such as carbon monoxide aren’t dissipating as they should. This can lead to a dangerous and even life-threatening hazard.
3. Poor Air Quality
You may not realize it, but your furnace directly affects the quality of air in your home. If you or your family members are frequently coughing, experiencing respiratory problems or complaining about allergies, a poorly maintained furnace could be the cause. It’s easy to replace the filter yourself, but a thorough cleaning of the ductwork may be required.
4. Trouble Starting
A faulty thermostat makes it difficult to turn on the heater and keep it running. A breakdown of the thermostat could be a gradual problem that you don’t notice at first. But if you have to try multiple times to get the unit started or have to restart it throughout the day, it’s time to call Service Legends for a furnace repair appointment.
5. Odd Noises
You know the normal sounds your heater makes when it turns on and off. But new sounds, especially whistling, squealing or banging noises should be inspected by a professional as soon as possible. These types of noises are warnings that a belt is loose or that internal components are broken.
Don’t ignore these warning signs or think they’re normal for an aging unit. In fact, regular service and furnace repair may actually extend the life of your heating system.
