Signs Your Furnace Needs Repair

Before chilly autumn nights set in, you need to make an appointment for your annual furnace maintenance. Neglect is the number one reason furnaces wear out. Just like servicing your car, furnaces need regular TLC to work. Whether you need regular maintenance or repair, Jacobs’ technicians can help keep your furnace in tip-top shape. 

Your Furnace isn’t Heating Your Home

You can hear your furnace turning on and know it is working but your house is still cold. This can be a variety of issues from a clogged air filter to a dirty flame sensor. It also could be that your thermostat is malfunctioning. 

Your Furnace is Frequently Cycling

Cycling between the “On” and “Off” mode can indicate a clogged filter or a wrong thermostat setting. Both are easy to troubleshoot. Check your thermostat settings and make sure your filter is clean. 

Your Furnace is Making Unusual Noises

Squeaks and rattling are not normal. You may have a clogged burner or a mechanical problem that needs to be addressed. A trained expert can help pinpoint the problem and suggest the best course of action. 

Know When to Repair vs Replace Your Furnace

Furnaces eventually stop working or wear out. There are a few things to think about when trying to decide if you should repair or replace your furnace. 

When troubleshooting the problem hasn’t solved your furnace issues one of our trained consultants can help. We can work through your system and determine if you need a furnace replacement.

Consider the Repair Bill

If your repair bill is comparably close to the cost of a new HVAC system then it might be time to replace it.

Age of Your System

Systems that are older than 15 years are probably ready to be retired.

Energy Efficiency of Your Unit

High heat bills might be an indicator that your furnace is aging and needs to be replaced with a more energy-efficient model.

Frequent Repair Bills

Constantly calling a repair technician to come out is a red flag your system is wearing out and needs to be replaced.
