5 Signs It's Time for Furnace Repairs, Grand Rapids, Wisconsin

Tackling furnace repairs in spring may seem a bit odd, but despite the longer days and rising temperatures, furnace problems should never go unchecked. In fact, because you won't be using it as often, there's no better time than now to handle repairs! To help you figure out when you should call in a professional heating contractor, Guelzow Heating & Air Conditioning Service has compiled a quick list of the most common furnace repair issues. Based in Wisconsin Rapids, WI, they have been the area's HVAC experts since 1953, so you can trust they know what's cause for concern. If you’re wondering whether you need furnace repairs, Guelzow Heating & Air Conditioning Service suggests taking note of the following signs.

Higher Bills

Unreliable Temperature Settings

If there's one thing your furnace should be able to do, it’s staying at the temperature you've set it at. Any furnace that can't do that needs to be repaired.

Pilot Light Problems

If you have other appliances like a grill or a water heater, you may be familiar with what a proper pilot light looks like. If not, know that it should always be blue. If it's orange or yellow, the pilot tube may need to be cleaned.

Odd Sounds

Regardless if it's banging, rattling, or popping, if it's a noise out of the ordinary, it's time for furnace repairs. Unfortunately, depending on the severity of the sound, you may be looking at a complete replacement instead of just a few repairs.

Old Age

The average longevity of a furnace is about a decade and a half. If yours is nearing this age, have it serviced. You may also want to consider a completely new furnace installation even if you haven't had too many complications in the past; a new unit will be more energy-efficient, quieter, and more aesthetically appealing.

If you encounter any of these issues, call a professional heating contractor. For anyone in Wisconsin, you can always rely on Guelzow Heating & Air Conditioning Service for any HVAC needs.
