Furnace Repair | What are the signs that I need Furnace Repair
You notice your furnace isn’t doing its job anymore but you’re not sure if you should just keep repairing it or finally replace it. Your home doesn’t feel as comfortable as it used to, your heating costs have gone up, you’re always repairing the furnace as it is getting old in its age, and there is a funny smell of gas around the furnace. It is time to have it assessed but with these symptoms, it’s likely time to replace it rather than limp it along and repair it again.
Every year, winter comes and more and more furnaces break down or in a worst case scenario, come to the end of their life. Your home isn’t feeling as warm as it used to. You even noticing dead spots where the heat doesn’t reach it. You have gone out and bought space heaters because no one likes a frozen bedroom in the middle of the night. You have purchased ample firewood because let’s face it, everyone likes a warm fire to cozy up and read next to or watch their favorite show on tv.
Heat your Entire home with a new furnace
You want to take care of those cold spots in your house to make it a comfortable home year round, but something disastrous is lurking. Your furnace is ready for a break down or worse, it is ready to be replaced. How do you know which one it should be? You do not need to have all the answers. All you need to do is call the professionals like Hot to Cold Mechanical. They will know what to do to have your furnace diagnosed on whether it is time to replace or if a simple repair will suffice. This is your reminder that a maintenance check should be done yearly.
You can proactively combat some future cold nights if you take a preventative approach and get it maintained regularly. If you don’t do this inevitably, at some time your whole family will suffer in the house when your furnace breaks down. Let’s just hope that is not in the middle of the night. Unbelievably, comfort is not the biggest motivator here. The biggest issue is the damage that can be done if your pipes freeze and water bursts everywhere in your home when your furnace breaks down in the middle of a deepfreeze and can’t be fixed easily or worse yet, it needs replacing.
An old Furnace can become more expensive
Your furnace may cost you not only comfort, but higher bills to run it. These are both tell tale signs of a problem waiting to happen. If your heat costs are going up significantly, its time to address this. You may have repaired it many times in the past and yet here you are again, calling for another repair. In this scenario, it is likely that your furnace is getting up there in age and another repair is not going to be enough anymore.
If you add up the cost of all the repairs and it doesn’t make sense to do one more because a new furnace will ultimately cost you less than replacing it is a better choice. One of the worst symptoms of a furnace ready to break is if the smell of gas is prominent around the furnace. Any of these symptoms tell you its time to call the professionals like Hot to Cold Mechanical. They can give you some advice over the phone and come in person to troubleshoot what is happening and what needs to be done about it.
