Your furnace plays a critical role in heating your home, especially during winter months when temperatures drop and snow or ice accumulates. A furnace is an appliance that cycles air through a series of ducts to heat it before releasing it into a living space. It works by burning fuel or using electricity to heat coils, and then pushing the warm air out into the house via ducts. A working furnace is essential for providing comfort in your home throughout the colder weather months.
Unfortunately, age and inefficient operation can lead to common furnace issues such as:
- Reduced airflow from a clogged filter,
- Trouble igniting due to old batteries or burned out pilot lights,
- Belt problems causing a grinding sound when running, and
- Insufficient combustion caused by lint buildup in the burners.
As cold weather sets in, it is important to be vigilant for signs that you have a furnace issue. The earlier the issue is identified, the easier and less costly it will be to repair. Keep an ear open for noises like banging, roaring or rattling coming from the furnace when it turns on. These noises may indicate an issue with the fan motor or belt. Also, notice any odors associated with running the furnace, such as a burning smell that could signify dust buildup or wiring issues present. Finally, keep track of your energy bills and if they become abnormally high all of a sudden, it could point to possible problems with your furnace's efficiency.
