A Look at Some Common Furnace Problems

Last updated 6 years ago

A home’s HVAC system is the most energy-intensive element of the entire house. However, it’s also vital for maintaining home comfort and indoor air quality. If your furnace is acting up, it’s important that you call a professional heating repair service right away to make sure that the problem is resolved promptly. Here is a look at three of the most common furnace-related problems you may experience:

1.  Strange Noises

Furnace noises are some of the most common issues that homeowners have with their heating and air conditioning systems. Most furnace noise is associated with worn out or malfunctioning mechanical components. In this case, replacing the part may the best way to keep your furnace quiet and pleasant.

2.  Poor Energy Efficiency

As furnaces age, they may become less and less energy efficient. However, this loss in furnace efficiency is usually gradual and may take a while to become noticeable. If your heating costs suddenly increase dramatically in a short amount of time, talk to an HVAC repair professional right away.

3.  Ineffective Heating Performance

If your furnace turns on but doesn’t seem to be heating your home effectively, you may have a problem with your thermostat or with the furnace itself. Avoid turning your thermostat all the way up, as this may cause your furnace to consume more energy without effectively heating your home.
