Common Furnace Issues

Your furnace is constantly running in the background, providing support to your daily routines, so much so that sometimes you even forget it’s there. And that’s why it can be difficult to figure out when something is going wrong.  Here are some common furnace issues you may be facing.

The Age and Condition of your Furnace

Furnaces are designed to last anywhere between 10-20 years, when properly maintained. But repairs become more frequent the older they get, and normal wear and tear takes place.

Older furnaces may start to make weird banging noises, or begin to show signs of rust or damage, and if that’s the case, it’s time to call the heating professionals at Action Furnace for your furnace inspection.

Unexplained Increases in your Utility Bills

If your heating bills are suddenly increasing, it’s another sign to schedule your furnace inspection.

Your technician will be able to identify any underlying issues that may be causing your furnace to malfunction, or let you know if it’s age related and it’s time for a new installation.

Inconsistent Heating Throughout Your Home

If you’re noticing that certain areas of your home are really warm, while others are freezing cold, it’s time to get your furnace looked at.Uneven heating or a complete lack of heat may indicate a problem with the furnace’s distribution system, causing serious discomfort and potential health risks from poor indoor air quality.

Strange Smells

An unusual smell from your furnace is a potentially critical situation that can pose immediate danger to your household. Burning smells are usually caused by overheating parts, which can result in huge repairs. While a rotten egg smell can be a sign of a natural gas leak, which could become a serious breathing or combustion hazard.

Our furnace technicians are trained to handle these situations quickly and with care. They’ll locate the source of the odour and fix it, ensuring your home’s safety and making sure you’re able to keep using your furnace safely in the future.
