Let Your Ears Tell You if Your Furnace is Acting Up

We might live in the desert, but it can get downright cold inside during the winter months, especially if your furnace is on the fritz. If you suspect your furnace might be acting up, your ears are a great tool in helping you decide if it’s time to call in a professional.

It’s Making Grinding Noises

If the sound coming from your furnace sounds like grinding, it’s likely you need to have the situation addressed as soon as possible. That’s because grinding is typically an indication that parts are knocking together, which should not happen when a furnace is running properly.

Another cause could be that some kind of outside debris made its way into the furnace and is bouncing around inside, doing damage to your furnace motor. If you hear grinding noises coming from your furnace, get in touch with a qualified repair company as soon as possible.

Is Your Furnace Humming?

If your furnace has started making humming noises, it could mean that some of your parts are starting to wear out and are working too hard. This is a good warning sign that some of the components that make up your furnace are on the verge of failure.

Your next step should be having the furnace checked out. A qualified professional will help you determine whether it is worth the investment to repair the worn-out parts. If it isn’t, replacement might just be the best option in your situation.

Losing Heating Power

Maybe your furnace simply does not heat as effectively as it used to. This could mean any number of things. It could need a replacement part, or just a good tune-up. A certified and licensed professional will be able to inspect your unit and determine the root of the problem and what needs to be done to have it taken care of.
