Signs Your Furnace Needs Repaired
If your home’s furnace or heating system is acting up, contact Rusk so one of our technicians can diagnose the issue and make a recommendation about whether it needs to be repaired or replaced. Some of the common signs that you need HVAC repair include:
The Furnace Won’t Turn on
A furnace that’s won’t turn on isn’t just an inconvenience, but it can lead to a dangerous situation when the temperatures dip below freezing in Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati, OH. Here is a list of things to check in the event that your furnace won’t kick on.
- Check your furnace filter to ensure it’s not clogged or dirty.
- Check the blower motor.
- Check the pilot light
- Check the thermostat to make sure it doesn’t need reset.
- Check the circuit breakers.
- Check the condensate pan
An Increase in Energy Bills
Have you seen a spike in your heating bills of late? If so, this is a tell-tale sign that something is awry and needs to be inspected by a professional heating and cooling technician. The longer the issue goes undiagnosed, the more money you spend on your heating system each month. If you need heating service in Cincinnati, contact Rusk today.
Strange Odors or Noises
Furnaces make some noise when they start and stop a cycle, but loud noises should be cause for concern. If you’re hearing banging, squealing, rattling, vibrating, or any sort of clicking noises, contact a heating and cooling company for a complete inspection of your furnace to get to the bottom of the issue. A smelly furnace, meanwhile, could be the result of dirt, dust, or other debris collecting in your unit, causing a musty smell.
Cold Spots Around Your Home
Are some rooms in your home colder than others? If your heating system, whether it’s a furnace or a heat pump, is producing uneven temperatures, it could be a sign of poor airflow. Contact the heating, cooling, and indoor air quality professionals at Rusk for HVAC repair in Cincinnati, OH.
Weak Airflow From Your Heating System
Heating systems that produce weak airflow could indicate a number of issues, including a dirty or clogged furnace filter, leaks in your air ducts, disconnected or improperly installed duct runs, or oversized or undersized ductwork. Call us today if you’re experiencing low airflow from your heat pump, furnace, or other heating systems.
When You Have Pilot Light Trouble
Having to troubleshoot a pilot light is a common experience for many furnace owners. Sometimes there is nothing wrong with the unit, but at other times a pilot light issue can be a serious problem. Occasionally, a pilot light will blow out from a gust of air. In these cases, simply relighting the flame solves the problem. However, if your pilot light has gone out more than once in a month, you may have a malfunctioning thermocouple.
The thermocouple is designed to shut off the gas flow when it no longer senses heat from the pilot light flame. If your thermocouple is dirty or broken, your gas may be shutting off for no reason. Another issue to watch out for with the pilot light is the color of the flame. Make sure that your flame burns blue at all times. An orange or yellow flame could indicate that your furnace is releasing carbon monoxide, a potentially deadly situation. Keeping your intake valve cleaned is one way to keep the flame burning correctly. Lastly, if you are not seeing any flame at all, check to see if your gas shutoff valve is shut and open it.
