Top 4 Furnace Problems That a Heating Service Can Help Fix, Wilton, Connecticut

A quality furnace can dependably heat a home for up to 15 years, but getting this equipment to stay at peak performance takes regular care. In addition to routine maintenance, homeowners must stay aware of how their furnace is performing—and respond to problems promptly. Without professional repairs, the damage may worsen and continue to impact your home’s comfort and safety.  If you rely on a furnace, you’ll need to call a heating service for repairs if you notice any of the following warning signs. 

4 Reasons to Hire a Heating Service

1. Sounds

As furnaces age, their internal components can loosen or become weak, resulting in a variety of odd noises. If you hear rattling, squealing, or banging sound coming from the equipment, a mechanical issue likely needs attention from a professional.

2. Heat

When the thermostat needs to be turned up higher than usual, an electrical malfunction may prevent it from communicating properly with the furnace. If little or no air is coming out of the vents, the blower fan likely needs to be repaired. And if you’re simply getting nothing but cold air, you’ll need a specialist to find out if a bad pilot light or thermocouple is to blame.

3. Odor

If you smell an odor from your heating system, call your full service company.   If it is a propane system, have everyone exit the home, call your service company and you can call your fire department. 

4. Cycling

Mechanical problems can prevent a furnace from reaching set temperatures in a reasonable amount of time, causing it to work harder than it should. When this happens, the equipment can overheat, shut off, and start back up—a process known as cycling.
