3 Signs It’s Time For Furnace Repair, Grand Rapids, Wisconsin

With temperatures rapidly cooling off, you’ve likely already started to use your furnace to keep your home comfortable and warm. While regular maintenance can keep your furnace in good shape, it won’t last forever. So how can you tell if you need furnace repair? The following are some of the most common indicators that something is amiss.

Top 3 Warning Signs For Furnace Repair

1. Strange Noises

Your furnace will naturally produce some noise during operation — but any loud banging or rattling is a sign to inspect. The sudden appearance of loud noises could indicate that an inner component is loose, or a warning of imminent mechanical failure.

2. Yellow Burner Flame

A yellow burner flame is a serious issue, as this indicates that toxic carbon monoxide is coming from your furnace. This yellow flame is frequently accompanied by soot stains and rusting flue pipes. Carbon monoxide inhalation can prove deadly. You should turn off your furnace and the gas supply to your home and then immediately call for professional assistance.

3. Frequent Cycling
