When a furnace breaks down, you cannot afford to wait to get the service you need. Furnaces may seem sturdy and reliable—and they typically are—but one small component out of line can soon wear out the entire system, leaving you without heat.
This year, do your part in preventing a furnace breakdown by scheduling your annual fall maintenance visit and by scheduling repairs the moment your furnace breaks down.
Why You Need to Act Fast
If your furnace shows signs of a struggle, you should call in local HVAC technicians ASAP (and NOT a neighborhood handyman). That’s because only a trained technician will be able to completely diagnose the issue and (hopefully) rule out any potential safety issues.
In addition, the longer you wait, the worse your furnace can get. Waiting too long to schedule repairs can lead to the gradual wearing of many of the most important components of your heater, which have to work harder the more you allow the problem to go on. Worn-down components may need replacement too, which means a higher cost when you finally do schedule repairs!
How to Tell Your Furnace Needs Repair
Any problem, big or small, deserves professional attention ASAP. If you notice the following issues, call for the help of a local HVAC technician, even if it doesn’t seem like that big of a deal to you:
- Strange noises – Anything from a loud banging noise to a low hissing deserves prompt attention.
- Low temperatures – If your furnace is just a few degrees off from the thermostat setting, there’s still a problem that will get worse if you wait too long.
- Trouble at start-up – If your gas furnace has trouble starting, you may have an urgent safety issue on your hands.
