Common Signs Your Furnace May Need Repair
Regular maintenance with Sanborn’s helps prevent breakdowns on cold nights. If you haven’t serviced your heating system, there are some common signs your system may need repair soon.
Dirty Air Filters
Clear air flow is vital to heaters. When air filters are clogged or dirty, it causes strain on your HVAC system. Under stress components are more prone to wear and breakage. Air filters should be replaced monthly to prevent unnecessary stress on heating systems. Most filters are clearly marked with size and air flow direction to simplify replacement. If you are unsure if the correct air filter is installed, Sanborn’s recommends referring to owners manual or contacting our team for help.
Uneven Heating and Cold Spots
Heating systems are designed to provide even heat throughout your home. Whether your home heating system is a gas furnace, heat pump or mini-split system, uneven heating and cold spots inside your home should not occur. If your living space suddenly has cold spots, you should contact our team in a timely manner. Finding the cause and making minor adjustments often prevents more significant and expensive repairs.
Heat pumps, gas furnaces and mini-splits produce noise when working properly. Strange noises like metallic shrieks, clanging or squealing should be inspected immediately. Belts, bearings and other components may need repaired. Before these parts break our team can help.
Dust and other debris may collect in the air ducts and within the furnace during the summer. When your heat turns on for the first time, it is not unusual to smell an odor. Other odd smells may be a sign of faulty electrical or failing mechanical parts. Burning plastic or rubber is a sign of worry. Any changes in odor from your HVAC system should be inspected by the professionals at Sanborn’s
Higher Energy Use
As furnaces age, components may require more energy to reach your preferred temperature. Sudden spikes in energy consumption should not occur. If your energy bill increases suddenly there may be an issue within your furnace or other HVAC components like the thermostat.
Short cycling describes when your furnace runs too frequently. This issue occurs for many reasons including dirty air filter, corroded flame sensors, obstructions in air ducts or worn electrical components. Repairing this issue quickly reduces the stress on your whole furnace.
Signs Your Heater May Need to be Replaced
With regular maintenance, heaters run well for years. Occasional repairs are far less expensive than complete replacement. Repairing a heating system may not be the best choice. There are many signs replacing your heater is smarter than repairing it.
Age of Unit
Replacing furnaces, heating pumps and other equipment is expensive. While repairing an older unit may save you money, frequently repairing aging heaters adds up. If you have an heating system over 12 years old, you may consider replacement. New units are far more efficient than older designs and will perform better than older models.
Type of Component
Minor components are relatively inexpensive to repair. Repairing or replacing major components should be carefully considered. The experienced professionals at Sanborn’s will advise the best choice depending on the component and how old your HVAC system is.
