Call Atomatic If You Notice Any of the Following Furnace Issues
What’s normal for a furnace and what’s the sign of a major issue? If you’re unsure if you need furnace repairs, any of the following signs is worth calling Atomatic to fix.
When your furnace comes on, it will be normal to hear a low humming or buzzing sound. This indicates that your furnace is working to disperse air back into your home. While these sounds are normal, it is not normal to hear a clanging sound or the sound of components scraping together. If this is the case, you’ll want to have these noises investigated. Strange noises are a common sign that something is broken within your HVAC system and your system will have to work harder to make your home comfortable.
If you turn on your furnace and notice strange smells like mildew, mold, or a musty smell, this is a sign that there might be a foreign substance like mold in your furnace or in your air duct system. Odors can be hazardous to your health. Besides being embarassing that your home stinks, if you have allergies and asthma, odors in your home may exasperate these symptoms.
Rising Energy Costs
It’s natural for your furnace to collect dust and debris from the air inside your home and slow down over time. As a result, it will begin to work harder to work through the clogs in the system. Replacing your air filters on a regular basis and investing in annual maintenance will help keep your system clean, which will keep your energy costs down. If you’ve neglected your furnace for too long, you may notice your energy bills spike. Have Atomatic perform furnace maintenance and repair service to restore your system to peak condition and lower your heating bills.
The Furnace is Short Cycling
If your furnace continues to turn on and off constantly, this is an issue known as short cycling. Short cycling can occur due to a variety of reasons, including overheating, a dirty filter, blocked heat grates, and more. Try changing your furnace’s air filter to see if that stops the problem. If it doesn’t then schedule an appointment with Atomatic to get to the root cause of your short cycling problem.
