Signs Your Furnace Needs Repairs
To avoid having your furnace completely malfunction, it’s important to schedule repairs with a professional at the first signs of a problem.
Some signs to watch for that can indicate your unit needs repairs can include:
- Short Cycling: If the unit runs for less than three minutes before shutting off, it can indicate a malfunctioning heat exchanger or an issue with the thermostat.
- Irregular Flames: If there are uneven flames, or flames that lean toward the back of the furnace, it can signal your burners need to be cleaned, or that the heat exchanger is cracked. A cracked heat exchanger is a serious issue that should be inspected immediately by a professional.
- Unusual Sounds: If you hear rumbling, popping, or whistling sounds when the unit is running it can indicate several issues that need to be repaired.
- Cracked Heat Exchanger: If your family is experiencing health issues that include frequent headaches or flu-like symptoms it can indicate a cracked heat exchanger. This can cause a carbon monoxide leak and should be treated by a professional ASAP. Carbon monoxide leaks can cause serious health issues – and even death.
