Is My Furnace in Need of Repairs?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could invest in a new heating system, have that heater installed by a trained professional, and then never have to worry about its performance or condition again? Well, great as that may sound, this is simply not the reality of the situation. When you use any heating system in your home, furnaces included, you are going to encounter operational problems of some sort eventually. When you do, prompt repairs are always in your best interest. The use of furnaces in Springfield, VT is quite common, and these systems are quite reliable. They are not 100% reliable, though, so contact HB Energy Solutions to schedule furnace repairs if you notice these, or any other, signs of trouble with the furnace in your home. 

Low Airflow

One of the most common signs of trouble with a furnace, or any other forced air heating system, is low airflow. While it can be frustrating to encounter such an issue, there are actually some fairly simple fixes which may resolve the problem. Your air filter may be clogged, for instance, and cleaning or replacing it may resolve the problem. It is also possible that a fan belt has slipped or broken, and that your system just isn’t blowing air as it should. However, there could be more serious problems as well, such as damaged ductwork, and only a trained professional can properly diagnose your system.

Alarming Sounds

Furnaces are not completely silent during operation. They have moving parts, after all, and they must force air throughout the house. However, any unfamiliar or very loud sounds coming from your system may suggest that there is a problem in need of professional furnace repair services. Screeching, clanging, hissing—whatever the alarming sound may be, we’ll get to the bottom of the issue to repair it effectively.

Tepid Air

Is your furnace blowing air throughout your home, but it is of a lukewarm constitution? You could have a problem with your pilot light and the combustion process, or with your electrical heating elements if you use an electric furnace. In either event, the problem must be resolved if you hope to heat your home efficiently and effectively, not to mention safely. Contact us if your furnace is struggling to heat air sufficiently.
