Neglecting maintenance or repair issues on your furnace almost always ends up costing you more.
Temperatures are already starting to dip in St. Louis, therefore it is essential that your heating system is in excellent condition. If you have already turned your furnace on and have noticed symptoms of a problem, you may be tempted to fix it yourself. After all, you may be fairly handy around the house. However, there are a number of issues that you should not try to repair yourself.
Making sure that your furnace is fully operational means that you need to get help before a small issue becomes a serious and costly problem. If you notice any of the following symptoms, it’s time to call a furnace repair technician.
Symptoms in Your Furnace
- High Thermostat Setting – If you are constantly turning up the heat on the thermostat because you can’t get your house warm, it’s time to have it checked. Either there is a problem with the thermostat itself or there could be a leak in your heating system.
- Unusually Loud – While no furnace is completely quiet, you should not be able to hear the furnace from another room of your house. If you notice an unusual sound that becomes louder, the noise may be coming from an ignition issue or a damaged belt.
- Rise in Energy Costs – If you notice that your monthly charges are going up, maybe drastically, and don’t think you’ve been using the system more than usual, it is typically an indicator that something is wrong and that your furnace is working overtime.
- Rapid System Cycling – A rapidly cycling system is when your furnace continuously turns itself off and on. This is not normal behavior and needs to be inspected quickly as it could be coming from a wiring or ignition issue.
If you notice any of the above symptoms, don’t wait to call a furnace repair technician. Neglecting maintenance or repair issues almost always ends up costing you more.
