When Are Furnace Repairs Necessary?

furnace-wiringImagine a word in which you know for certain that your heater is always going to be there for you, no matter what. You fire it up when the temperature drops, and you shut it back down once things warm up again. Wouldn’t that be something?  Of course, aside from living in an ongoing fantasy world, you just are not going to be able to enjoy this type of reliability from any heater, your furnace included.

The fact of the matter is that your furnace is a mechanical system, and that means that you will eventually need professional furnace repairs in Fairfield, CT.  When it comes to such repairs, there is one mantra to keep in mind: the sooner, the better. If you notice trouble at the start of the heating season, you may be quick to spring into action. Maybe not so much at the end of the season—but you should be.

Is Your Furnace Blowing Cold Air?

If you’re looking for a very obvious sign that there is something wrong with your furnace, then look no further than a system that is blowing cold air. Like so many other furnace issues, though, the exact cause of this problem may not be as obvious as the symptoms. Anything from leaking ductwork to problems with your thermostat or the heating elements in an electric furnace could be to blame. That is why having the problem professionally diagnosed is just as important as having it professionally repaired.

Is Your Furnace Making Alarming Sounds?

No, we’re not talking about the ticking of cooling down or the sound of air being forced through the system. We’re talking about sounds like grinding, shrieking, or booming. Anything from delayed ignition of fuel to loose components to insufficient could be to blame here. Working with us means that the right solutions are found for the actual problems at hand.

Is Your Furnace Starting and Stopping Rapidly?

If so, then it is short cycling. This is a major problem, as it actually puts a lot of unnecessary wear and tear on the system—wear and tear that can lead to further repair needs over time. It may have a simple solution, such as the need for a fresh air filter. Or,  it could be something more complex. Malfunctioning components like thermocouples, bad wiring, etc. Whatever the case, you want your system running properly again as soon as possible, and we’re the pros to handle the job. Which brings us to:
