Is your furnace trying to tell you that it needs repair? Sometimes these warning signs are hard to notice, leading to your furnace breaking down during an Egg Harbor Township, NJ winter. Read on for five signs that you need a furnace repair.
1. Loud Noises
It’s normal for your furnace to make some sounds when it’s running, but any rattling, banging, or squeaking sounds should catch your attention. These loud noises indicate that your furnace has a damaged or loose part that needs immediate repair.
2. Inefficient Heating
If your furnace is doing a poor job of keeping your home at a consistent temperature, it’s time to schedule a furnace repair. A few common causes of inefficient heating include a faulty motor, a clogged filter, or a malfunctioning thermostat.
3. Short Cycling or Constantly Operating
Short cycling occurs when your furnace frequently turns off and on. There are many possible reasons why short cycling occurs, such as a malfunctioning heat exchanger, a clogged filter, or a faulty thermostat. Our service technicians will identify the problem and create a plan of action for furnace repair.
4. Energy Bills Increasing
If you’ve noticed that your energy bill is suddenly increasing, it could be a sign that your furnace is operating inefficiently and requires repair. A malfunctioning furnace often requires more electricity or gas to maintain the temperature set at the thermostat. Contact us to fix the problem and help your furnace run more efficiently.
5. Water Leakage
Water leaking from your furnace may be caused by a clog or break in the condensation line. Internal drains can also become clogged. An emergency repair can resolve the water leakage and prevent damage to the rest of your home.
