Signs Your Avon Furnace Needs Repair Services
If you are worried about the lifespan of your furnace, the following clues can sometimes let you know your furnace will need repair services.
No heat in one or more rooms
There are a few reasons why rooms may not have heat. One of the most common reasons, though, is leaky or broken ductwork. Contact B&W to sort out the reason.
Hearing odd noises (squealing/rumbling)
A furnace makes a standard set of sounds. Anything that is not a normal noise should be investigated quickly. Sometimes you can catch the problem before it becomes a major repair.
System runs constantly
Unless you are in the middle of a blizzard, the furnace should not run constantly. Some common reasons for this include a dirty furnace filter, a malfunctioning thermostat or a faulty limit switch. A simple repair helps isolate the problem so repairs can be made.
Detection of a funny smell/gas odor
Any strange smells coming from the furnace should be inspected right away. A musty smell could indicate the presence of mold or mildew in your HVAC system, while a lingering burning smell could indicate the heater is getting too hot.
System cycles on and off rapidly
Short cycling occurs when the furnace starts and stops frequently without completing a cycle. Some common causes of short cycling include overheating, a dirty furnace filter, an oversized system, a dirty flame sensor or a malfunctioning thermostat.
Blower fan continues to run
The blower fan should only run when there is warm air to circulate. A faulty fan switch may be the issue or something more imminent. A service call from one of our professional furnace technicians will sort out the issue quickly and accurately.
Should I Repair or Replace My Furnace?
When a furnace is not functioning, it is common to evaluate whether it is worth replacing or repairing it. Here are some tips for making that decision.
It’s better to repair your heater when:
- There have been few repairs.
- The unit is less than 10 years old
- The unit is still under warranty
- The repair is small and not expensive.
It’s better to replace your heater when:
- The unit is older than 10 years and has not been well maintained. Most well-maintained furnaces have a lifespan of 15-20 years.
- The furnace requires a lot of service calls. Usually, when the repair calls escalate, it is time to replace the unit.
- The cost of repairs begins to rise. Your investment in expensive repairs would go a lot farther as an investment in a new furnace.
Deciding to replace a furnace can be difficult. However, there are financing options available that help soften the cost, and having a reliable furnace during the cold winter months makes a new furnace a wise investment.
