Indianapolis Furnace Repair
Furnaces are great for keeping our families warm during the chilly fall and winter months, but they tend to break down and stop working during the worst possible times, especially during really cold winters when older electric and natural gas furnaces are being pushed to their limits. Just like the mileage on a car, run time equals the life of the furnace.
If your electric or gas furnace breaks down in the middle of the night, on a weekend, or a holiday, it’s important that you get it working again as soon as possible to bring warmth and comfort back to your Indianapolis home. No matter when your furnace breaks down, the technicians at B&W Plumbing, Heating, Cooling, and Drains are available to help!

Common Heating System Problems That Need Repairs
Sometimes, it can be tough to tell if your Indianapolis furnace needs to be repaired, or if there’s even an issue with the unit at all. Thankfully, your electric or gas furnace will likely leave you signs that there is an issue in need of repairs. Some of these signs include:
Strange noises or odors
A furnace that makes strange noises or emits weird odors can be indicative of a number of different issues. For example, a furnace that constantly makes a loud banging noise whenever it’s turned on could mean there is an issue with the ignition system, the gas valve, or a clogged and dirty burner. A professional should come to inspect your furnace to find the true cause of the issue.
Furnace produces weak or cool airflow
The most common and obvious sign a furnace needs repairs is if it’s producing weak or cool air. If your furnace isn’t heating your home like it’s supposed to, call the experts at B&W to see what repairs are necessary to bring warmth back to your Indianapolis home.
Furnace won’t turn on
A furnace refusing to turn on could signal an issue with the flue pipe system, gas control, relay control, the thermostat, or other electrical components. Whatever the cause is, contact a professional for emergency furnace repair service.
Spike in utility bills
If you suspect an issue with your furnace, pay close attention to your utility bills. When a furnace isn’t doing its job correctly and is putting out a temperature below what it should be, it will take longer to bring the home to the set temperature. When that happens, the furnace is forced to stay on longer, driving up the cost of your utilities.
Cold spots or uneven temperatures
One of your furnace’s jobs is to make sure that your home reaches the desired temperature and stays there. If you’re noticing cold spots or uneven temperatures throughout your Indianapolis home, it might be a sign that your furnace needs repairs.
DIY Furnace Repair Before You Call Us
Confirm the thermostat is accurate and turned on
As simple as it might seem, check that your thermostat is turned on the heating mode before taking any additional steps. If your thermostat uses batteries, check to see if they need to be replaced.
Check or change the HVAC filter
HVAC filters should be replaced every two to three months on average. If you’ve been slacking with replacing or checking your HVAC’s filter, your issue might be with the furnace filter, and it should be checked right away.
Look for any furniture blocking airflow
Did you recently rearrange the furniture? Make sure there isn’t any furniture blocking your registers and the dampers in the registers are open.
