When you need high quality furnace repair, Santa Cruz, Santa Clara, & Marin residents should contact the trained professionals at Bellows Plumbing, Heating, & Air. Maintaining your heating and cooling system is very important for preserving its safety and longevity. If you suspect that your furnace is beginning to show signs of wear and tear, it may be time to have a professional come out and take a look. I often times tell my clients that unlike plumbing issues which tend to show themselves rather quickly. an unsafe furnace can appear to operate as normal. However, that appearance of normal operation often times causes homeowners to overlook hazardous situations like cracked heat exchanges, faulty safety switches, or over heating motors.
There are a few warning signs to look out for if you think it might be time to repair, or even replace, your furnace.
1. Does the temperature in your home seem to fluctuate? If you seem to constantly have to adjust the temperature up or down in your home, there may be a problem with your furnace's heat production.
2. Does the burner flame appear yellow instead of blue? A flickering or yellow flame may indicate a carbon monoxide leak, which can present a very dangerous situation for you and your family. If you suspect a leak, furnace replacement should be seriously considered.
3. Is the amount of your bills increasing? If your monthly gas and electric bills seem to be going up, it may be an indicator that your furnace is not functioning the way it should. Malfunctioning systems will use more fuel to produce the same amount of heat, costing you more money every month.
4. Does your furnace seem louder than normal and does it kick on an off repeatedly. If so it could mean the fan motor is failing or that you have leaky/disconnected ducts.
