Not only does it cause panic within your household, but also it can create a horribly uncomfortable situation for everyone inside.

Watch for These Furnace Problems
A broken furnace is never any fun, but most of the time you can catch smaller repair issues before they get too serious by watching for specific signs of trouble. Some of the more common signs of furnace trouble are
- Elevated heating bills
- Unpleasant odors coming from the unit itself. This is an especially bad sign if you have a gas furnace.
- Loud banging, scraping or knocking sounds
- Inability of the heater to match what you’ve set on your thermostat
If you see any of these signs, however subtle they may be, it is important to address them before they turn into something more serious, requiring costly repairs. Sometimes, the system may only need a quick adjustment or tune-up, but that’s not always the case. The only way to know for sure is to call your local heating expert and have the furnace checked out.
Another good way to avoid small issues like these and more complex problems with your heating system is to keep up with regular HVAC maintenance, including annual inspections and tune-ups. Gene's Super Techs are always available to chat with you about your heating repair or tune-up needs. Our team is trained to work with all furnaces, whether they run on gas, oil, or electricity.
Routine Furnace Maintenance Saves Time and Money
If you want to save yourself time and money over the long term, having yearly maintenance performed on the furnace is a good idea. During a maintenance visit, the technician will inspect and clean all of the working parts of your furnace and repair any minor damage that has the potential to cause bigger problems. If you schedule the maintenance visit shortly before the normal heating season, your furnace will be clean and running as efficiently as possible throughout the upcoming winter. An efficient system means fewer repairs, so you won’t have to be as diligent when it comes to looking for signs of trouble and the monthly bills will be less. Having regular maintenance on your furnace provides several benefits that you will notice over the course of the entire year.
