When Is it Time to Call for Furnace Repair?
While you may not think of your furnace very often when it’s working properly, chances are it won’t take you long to notice when it needs repairs. In addition to colder indoor temperatures, there are several other warning signs you should look for, which are key indicators your furnace may be on the fritz. Remember, the sooner you call for repairs, the better, as waiting too long can result in increasingly costly fixes, if not forcing you to replace your system completely.
Signs There’s A Problem With Your Furnace
- It is giving off a burning smell
- It’s making strange rattling or banging noises
- It turns off and on erratically
- It doesn’t turn on at all
- It’s not communicating with the thermostat
- It runs for extended periods of time without properly heating your home
If you are experiencing any of these warning signs, your furnace may be suffering from a range of issues, including a faulty furnace connection, dusty air filters, electrical wiring problems, and more. If left unaddressed, these issues can cause your furnace to “short cycle,” in which your system shuts down, only to restart a short time later, leaving your house unevenly heated and increasing your energy bill. Luckily, our skilled Portland heating technicians at A-TEMP are able to diagnose issues quickly, and offer comprehensive emergency furnace repair solutions which can improve your furnace’s performance and save you serious money.
Why Does the Pilot Light Keep Going Out?
If your furnace’s pilot light keeps going out, a likely culprit is the thermocouple or flame sensor. The thermocouple acts as a safety measure for your furnace. It is responsible for turning the gas off when the flame, or pilot light, is extinguished, thus protecting your home. If the thermocouple is damaged, faulty, misaligned, or even dirty, your pilot light will keep going out. You can check the color of the pilot light flame to determine if the thermocouple is the issue. If the flame has changed from its usual blue to a yellow color you're in need of a professional service. As the pilot light is essential in keeping your home heated, we recommend consulting with a professional furnace technician from our team as soon as you begin experiencing an issue.
