With the holiday season at hand, the harshest months of winter are just around the corner. This makes it important that you perform any necessary furnace maintenance now so that you can ensure the comfort of you and your family in the coming weeks and months. Yet, you may wonder how you will know if your furnace is in need of maintenance or repair. Here are a few of the signs you can look out for in your furnace.
You are not Comfortable
The clearest sign that something is wrong with your furnace is if it is running, and you are continually turning it higher, and you still do not feel warm. The weather is only going to continue to get colder, if your furnace is not keeping you comfortable now, then something is clearly wrong that needs to be repaired as soon as possible.
Your Furnace Makes Strange Noises
With your furnace, it is important to be aware of the normal noises it makes when it is running. If it begins to make any new or unusual sounds, then it is likely that your furnace is in desperate need of repair. A variety of problems, including a loose or broken part, could be the culprit. Either way you will want to have this issue seen to.
Being overworked each winter can tire your furnace out, which is why it is important that you have it repaired, and have maintenance performed on it, regularly. However, with winter coming up, it may be a good idea to schedule an inspection if you simply cannot remember the last time you had your furnace serviced.
