You should know your furnace like the back of your hand. Well, maybe not that well. But, you should know it well enough to know when it is shouting “Warning! Warning!” Your furnace rarely just goes on the fritz without a few warning signs. If you know the warnings of a problem, you can decrease the blow to your wallet and decrease your time without heat.
One warning sign that something is amiss is if you notice your energy bills are suddenly through the roof. If your energy costs are skyrocketing, it may be because your furnace is having to work extra hard to heat your home. This overtime schedule can mean a minor or major problem. You won’t know for sure until you call in the furnace experts from High Performance Heating, Cooling & Hydronics.
If your furnace won’t start at all, you most definitely have a problem. However, don’t ignore when it is having trouble starting either. Any kind of trouble starting can mean either a major or minor problem. Sometimes furnaces have trouble starting simply because the connections or wiring has gone bad. This can be an easy fix. Trouble starting can be a thermostat problem too.
Before you panic or think an exorcism is in order to get your furnace back to a normal, smooth sounding, and smooth operation, call the furnace professionals at High Performance Heating, Cooling & Hydronics.
