Signs of Furnace Issues

Regular maintenance is necessary for all appliances in your home, especially your furnace. Even if it’s not winter and you are not using your furnace as much, it is still important to observe a maintenance routine. Lack of proper upkeep can lead to several issues and the need for heating repair in Elk River, MN. Rol Air Plumbing & Heating discusses some common signs that you need repairs:

Unusual, Strange Smell

There shouldn’t be any smell coming out of your heating system. A furnace should only produce and transport heat around the house. When you notice a particular smell, it could be for several reasons, like a gas leak from the furnace system or a possible overheat that melted the furnace electrical wiring, causing the emission of a strange electrical burning smell. 

Poor ventilation in the heating system’s exhaust can lead to carbon monoxide builds. Increased levels of carbon monoxide in the air we breathe can cause flu-like symptoms that can lead to serious illnesses. If you notice a strange smell when you use your furnace, schedule professional heating services right away.

Old Age

The older your furnace system gets, the less efficient it becomes. While your furnace could still work for years, as long as the HVAC system is no longer working, the furnace system could be a health hazard. The average age that a furnace system should work is between 15 to 20 years. However, proper heating maintenance can make it last longer.

Need for Frequent Repairs

If you notice that your furnace system has been needing repairs more frequently, it may be time for a new heating installation. Frequent repairs are a sign that there is a serious problem with your unit. Rather than spending more on repairs, a full replacement is a more cost-effective solution.
