Signs Your Furnace Needs Repair
Despite your best efforts, sometimes components on your heater wear out or go bad. Here are a few symptoms to look for that indicate there’s something wrong with your unit.
When components start to break down, your furnace becomes less efficient. That means your system has to work harder to produce the same temperatures you’re used to. Sometimes, it means your unit is working harder and is still unable to reach the set temperature, which can be felt when some rooms are warmer than others. Evidence something is wrong will be reflected in both the way your home feels and your utility bill.
Is your HVAC system producing loud banging, rattling or squealing sounds? This can be a sign of a worn or torn hose, belt or other internal component. When loud sounds start coming from your furnace, call Waterbury Heating & Cooling, Inc. at (605) 277-7336 to avoid a costly or dangerous situation.
The pilot light for a gas furnace should have a blue flame. The color of the flame is an indication of its efficiency. When the flame turns yellow, it often means it isn’t burning out all the carbon monoxide. The leaking gas combined with the carbon monoxide can be deadly. This is why regular inspections of your system are so important. Another sign of a gas or carbon monoxide leak is rust or corrosion on the flue lines. If you see the pilot light is no longer blue, or you see evidence of rust and corrosion, leave your home, shut off the gas at your house and call Waterbury Heating & Cooling, Inc. immediately for an inspection and service.
When the furnace stops working, or if there’s a problem with your air vents, excess moisture or stagnant air collect in your home. You’ll notice moisture droplets on walls, windows or even the ceiling, and you can feel the still, stagnant air when you enter a room. When this happens, make sure the vents are clean. If they are clean and open, call Waterbury Heating & Cooling, Inc.. We’ll take care of the rest!
Air filters help keep tiny particles of dust, debris and bacteria from circulating through your home, which is why you should replace them regularly. If you fail to change out the air filters, people with weakened immune systems or those who suffer from asthma and other lung illnesses will feel worse symptoms than usual. To take it a step further, you and your family may start to experience headaches, weakness, nausea or vomiting, blurred vision or even confusion and hallucinations. These are all signs of carbon monoxide poisoning. If you don’t have a carbon monoxide detector and you start exhibiting these symptoms, leave your home immediately and turn off the gas, then call Waterbury Heating & Cooling, Inc.. After setting up an appointment, make it a point to purchase and install a carbon monoxide detector in your hallway near each bedroom in your home and check the batteries at least twice a year.
