Why You Should Avoid Putting Off Furnace Repair
We’ve almost made it through February, which means the spring season is near. If you feel relieved to have made it through the bulk of the winter season without a furnace breakdown, you may not be in the clear just yet.
If you are counting down the days to when you switch from ‘heat’ to ‘cool’ on your HVAC system because your furnace operation has been questionable, you may want to do yourself a favor and make the call for help before the transition of seasons.
Did you know that many components in your furnace are also used with your air conditioner?
Issues arising with your furnace may also impact your A/C system operation in the spring and summer seasons, so it’s best to handle any furnace concerns as they come, rather than putting them off. Ignoring a failing furnace can result in a number of HVAC headaches, including:
Unnecessary Wear and Tear
Any issue that you experience with your furnace that is left unattended, whether it be a sound or operational glitch, can result in additional wear and tear to the system. A part that has gone bad may cause other areas of your equipment to overwork and even result in more failed parts. For this reason, we advise the importance of not ignoring any warning sign that your furnace gives you.
High Utility Bills
Keep watch on your utility bills this time of year. If your utility bills spike and it is not warranted by extreme temperatures, you could have a furnace malfunction. A system that is overworked for any reason, including a failed or worn-down part, will directly impact your energy bills.
Ineffective Heating or Cooling
Can’t seem to keep comfortable throughout your home? This could be a sign of an underperforming furnace. Our service technicians can help diagnose heating/cooling concerns and inconsistencies and how they relate to the condition of your furnace and A/C.
Untimely HVAC Breakdown
If you notice a glitch in your furnace operation, but the system is still running, you may only be on borrowed time. Eventually, any strain that the system is being put through will likely snowball into one or more failed parts, which could lead to an untimely breakdown of your HVAC system as a whole. Avoid a ’no heat’ or ‘no cool’ situation at all cost and call for help at the first sign of trouble.
Those who neglect heating issues will often end up with bigger (and more expensive) repairs in the future. Keep in mind that a failing furnace rarely fixes itself; so any issues you experience are likely to persist or become worse as time goes by.
