Noises You’ve Never Heard Before
You’re probably used to coming in from a cold Denton day and flipping on your heater to hear the soft, rushing sound of warm air filling your home. This sound is noticeable but unobtrusive and a subtle sign that your system is working the way it should be. If you turn on your furnace and you’re greeted by more concerning sounds, then it’s time to call a professional.
Common sounds you’ll hear when your furnace starts to malfunction are banging, rattling, grating, squeaking, clicking, or squealing. It’s hard to tell why these sounds are happening without the aid of a professional because there is a multitude of intricate components within your furnace system that could cause these noises. Don’t guess—call a professional and have them assess your system.
Have you noticed that your heater isn’t doing such a hot job at heating your air? It’s a sign that you should see a professional because your heater is running poorly. This is often a problem with the motor in your blower fan. If this part of your system is malfunctioning, then your furnace won’t have enough power to adequately heat your home and you might notice lackluster heating power.
High Heating Bills
Have you noticed the price of your heating bill steadily? If you’re using your heater incessantly then a jump in price should be expected, but if you’re running your heater in the same manner that you always have, then you’re probably suffering from low-efficiency levels. You need a heater tune-up and you might even need repairs too. Call our team for the job.
