There is no such thing as a “normal” furnace problem. Any issue with your furnace should be dealt with sooner rather than later. But there is a difference in the level of severity with furnace problems, and sometimes you may require emergency HVAC services.
- It Makes Loud Noises. If your HVAC system is making loud noises that you are not used to, such as a banging or thumping noise, your system is telling you that it is in need of repairs.
- There are Electrical Issues. If your breaker trips, the lights flicker, or there’s any kind of electrical issues when your system turns on, this means that there is a bigger issue going on with your furnace. Electrical issues can be dangerous and can lead to larger problems. Make sure to schedule emergency HVAC services as soon as you notice this problem.
- You Smell Gas. The smell of gas or fuel coming from your HVAC system is a serious problem and should be dealt with immediately. Call a professional right away to come deal with the problem.
- The House is Cold. In the winter months, if your furnace is pumping out cold air, this can be a serious problem. If your furnace is not heating your home like it should, this can be dangerous to you and your family if the temperatures outside are especially cold.
These signs that your HVAC system requires emergency service are all preventable. Scheduling annual maintenance check-ups and taking care of your HVAC system can prevent the system from requiring repairs and can prolong its life.
However, if you do notice any of these signs, make sure to schedule an emergency HVAC service immediately.
