What’s Wrong with My Furnace?

There’s nothing worse than creaking around in a cold home. You have to armor up in your warmest clothing just because your furnace isn’t working as well as you want it to. There are levels to these things. There’s nothing wrong with having on some sweats and fuzzy socks when you’re at home. If you feel like you have to dress the same way inside as you do outdoors though, this is a problem.

This signifies a problem with your home’s furnace. If you’re looking for furnace repair in Milford, CT, you can schedule an appointment with our team members. We’re here to help you get the warmth that you need at home. We know it’s not always easy. You need professionals by your side to ensure that you’re getting quality work.

So… What’s Up?

Here are a few things that could be going wrong with your furnace this winter:

Dirty Filter

If there’s one thing you should be doing as a homeowner, you should definitely be swapping out your HVAC system’s filter. Swapping out your filter means that you’re preparing your home’s heater and/or air conditioner to perform to the best of its ability. If you’re not doing this, you might start to notice that you have low airflow throughout your home. You’ll notice this when you have to run your heater for longer periods of time or at higher thermostat settings. We’re here to help you get what you need.

Another side effect of a dirty filter is short cycling. This can be a more subtle problem that you’re experiencing. Short cycling looks like your heater running in short, irregular cycles. You might also notice that you struggle to get your home warm and struggle even harder to keep it warm. These are both problems and we can help you fix them easily.

Electric Issues

Have you noticed that your thermostat reading is completely off? It could actually be an electric problem with the way the thermostat is wired. It could also be the placement of your thermostat. This results in higher energy bills and low comfort.

Blocked Vents (Move Furniture)

2020 was a year like no other. You were at home consistently probably more than you’d ever been before in your life. Because of this, you might have taken the time to move some things around with your home’s interior design or décor. If this involved moving any big pieces of furniture (couches, bookshelves, etc.) you might want to make sure they’re in an appropriate spot. You’re probably struggling to get warm if a large piece of furniture is in front of a vent. It’s a simple fix!

Discolored Burner Flame

Take a peek into your home’s furnace flame. Is it blue? If the answer is no it’s a problem.

Your furnace flame shouldn’t be red, orange, or even yellow. A blue flame is the right flame color for a furnace. If you’re not getting the right color from your furnace flame, then you need to schedule an appointment with our team members. The side effects that you’ll notice are low output or cool air blowing from your vents.
