Woman warmly clothed in a cold homeKeeping your heating systems in good condition is important. If your furnace is the primary source of heat for your home, you need to pay attention to any signs furnace repair is required. When you see the signs, call an HVAC technician immediately.

One of the signs that your heating system needs to be repaired is when it is not emitting heat. Several things can cause this to happen. One reason is when the breaker in the electrical panel trips and causes the system to malfunction. If this is not the issue, the furnace should be serviced as soon as possible.

The other sign of a problem is strange noises that come from the system. Heating systems are quiet when they are running. At some point, they can emit loud, banging sounds. These sounds are signs of a problem. This issue may be caused by the blower motor. The problem is solved by adjusting the fan. Loud sounds, on the other hand, could mean a delayed ignition to the furnace.

Another sign that indicates there is a problem is a strong scent of natural gas.  If the smell of natural gas is strong, it could indicate a major issue such as a gas leak. In such a situation, you should call the fire department and gas company as soon as possible.

Homes that have gas appliances should be outfitted with carbon monoxide monitors. Non-vented gas furnaces may cause carbon monoxide emissions. If the carbon monoxide monitor goes off,  call an HVAC technician to come and test all appliances to determine what is causing the leak.

You also call an HVAC technician when you notice that your electric bills are suddenly higher. This increase can be a sign of an efficiency problem. The bill increases because your unit is utilizing extra electricity to carry out its work. The professionals who repair furnaces can assist you in all these situations.
