Did you know that an unmaintained furnace is prone to breakdowns, less energy efficient, and potentially hazardous to you and your family’s health? Before your furnace fails and potentially pumps hazardous gases into your home, get your furnace inspected and repaired by our furnace repair technicians in Crystal Lake.
If it’s been a while since your furnace was inspected and repaired, now is the time to do it. Older, unmaintained furnaces gas leak gas or hazardous fumes, like carbon monoxide, throughout your home, which can be life-threatening to you and your family.
Suppose you cannot remember your furnace’s last maintenance date, or it’s been more than 12 months since you inspected it. In that case, our furnace repair technicians recommend inspecting it to look for common problems, like burner issues, cracked heat exchanges, and proper gas or electrical flow to the furnace and thermostat. Correcting these issues before your furnace completely can save you money in the long run and prevent you from experiencing dangerously cold temperatures inside your home.
Your furnace should not give off any odors at any time. If you notice the smell of rotten eggs, your furnace could be leaking gas, which can cause a catastrophic explosion. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace and the gas service to your furnace and call our repair technicians immediately. In addition to the smell of gas, you shouldn’t smell hot smells or burning rubber. This could indicate a problem with the wiring of your furnace or indicate that something is broken or stuck inside your furnace and rubbing against other parts.
When your home fails to reach the thermostat setting, it could be a problem with the unit’s heat exchanger, blower fan, or thermostat. Our furnace repair technicians in Crystal Lake can determine the causes of your partial furnace failure and remedy them so that you can have warm temperatures inside your home.
If your furnace clangs, bangs, or thumbs, it’s ready to stop working. This could indicate that something has broken off inside your furnace and is rattling around or that your fan, fan motor, or belt is about to fail. In this instance, you should turn off your furnace and call our repair technicians to schedule an immediate furnace repair in Crystal Lake.
Weak airflow could be the symptom of a minor or significant problem. For example, your fan or fan motor could be broken, your air filter clogged, or your ducts leaky or clogged. Our furnace repair technicians can diagnose the problem of your weak airflow and repair it so that every room in your home is warm.
