What’s Wrong with My Furnace?

Heating_iStock_000008099675_Large_800x533Staying warm in Illinois is definitely a task during this part of the year, but it shouldn’t feel like a drag. If you feel like your furnace isn’t working the way you want it to, you need to schedule an appointment for your furnace in Orland Park, IL.

Make sure that you’re staying on top of your furnace system. You know that you’re going to need this unit more often than ever. You shouldn’t ever neglect your furnace system, but especially not during this time of the year. Come to us when you want quality furnace work for your home.

A Few Key Winter Problems

Here are the most common winter heating problems that you might encounter this season:

1. Uneven Temperatures

Have you noticed that the temperatures across your house are a little off? You turn your heater on and you’re burning up in your living room, but then you walk to the bedroom and it’s ice cold.

Uneven temperatures throughout a home are a sign of an unhealthy furnace system. Your furnace system shouldn’t fail you like this. This isn’t something that you can just brush off. It’s an early warning sign that the furnace is having trouble.

2. Inaccurate Thermostat Reading

If your thermostat reading is off, then your heating quality is bound to be off too. Don’t let your heater decline in quality this winter. Have one of our professionals pinpoint the issue you’re having ASAP.

3. Low Heat Output

Have you noticed that your heater takes longer to heat up your house? Do you feel like you spend excessive amounts of time and energy getting the rooms warm? This means that you’re struggling with low heating output. We can help you eliminate this problem.

4. High Energy Bills

Your energy bills are high but nothing about how you run your home is any different. This is a sign of inefficiency. You’re paying more for your heater to struggle and decline in quality throughout the season too. Nip this problem in the bud with the help of our professionals.

5. Irregular Cycling

If your heater is running in exceptionally short or long cycles, then it means that you’re struggling with your home’s efficiency. Irregular cycling is only going to get worse the more often you use your home’s heater. Don’t let this problem get you into a bind this winter.

6. Noises

Are there odd noises like bumping, scraping, rattling, or even banging happening in your home? Your furnace should never be noisy. If it is, then the specific noise that you’re hearing is definitely a sign that your furnace is deteriorating.

7. Odd Scents

Your furnace should never emit a scent. If it is, then it’s a bad sign and a reason to call a professional. Odd scents mean that your home might have budding carbon monoxide issues. If you notice something like this, you should turn off your heater, exit your house, and call a professional for help.
