It seems to be that time of year where you can feel the air start to turn. There is a crispness that comes with the fall season. For many of us, it means that the furnace better be ready to put in some work so that we can stay warm no matter what the temperature is doing outside. If you have made the switch and are relying on your furnace to keep you warm at night, you may be wondering when the right time to get it tuned up is. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about some of the signs that indicate it’s time to get your furnace tuned up.
Signs It’s Time for a Furnace Tune Up
There are certainly signs that start to pop up here and there when it’s time to get your furnace tuned up. Here are some of the signs that you should be looking for.
– Strange Furnace Noises: Of course, when your furnace kicks on, it isn’t going to be silent. However, you shouldn’t hear loud, strange sounds either. Strange sounds are usually a big sign that something is wrong and needs to be repaired.
– Short Cycling of Furnace: When your furnace is constantly turning on only to turn off a few minutes later, this is known as short cycling. This means that your furnace isn’t able to get through a complete cycle. The furnace won’t have time to reach the optimal temperature when this happens. It can lead to big furnace problems as this is extremely hard on your furnace.
– High Heating Energy Bills: If you notice that there is a sudden increase in your heating bill, it can be due to a furnace issue. When your furnace isn’t working properly, it is more than likely not working efficiently either. This can lead to more energy usage than normal and higher utility bills.
– Poor Indoor Air Comfort: The entire reason you have a furnace is so that you can be comfortable no matter what the weather is doing outside. If your furnace isn’t doing that, and you are feeling hot and cold spots in your house, you need to have your furnace checked out.
– Yellow Pilot Light on Furnace: the pilot light found in your furnace should always be blue. If it is starting to look yellow or orange, it can be a sign of a dangerous carbon monoxide leak. It also means that your furnace isn’t burning fuel efficiently.
