To avoid the worst-case scenario of waking up in the middle of the night shivering from a broken furnace, here are a few signs that you will probably notice before a total shutdown.
Energy Bills Increasing
Have you been noticing a climb in your energy costs over the past few months? Chances are something is wrong with your furnace and it’s working harder to warm your home. This can be caused by anything from a dirty air filter all the way to a cracked heat exchanger. Whatever the case, consider calling Armor Air to get to the bottom of this problem and fix it before it becomes a bigger problem.
Furnace Emitting Strange Odors
A strange odor coming from your furnace can mean a number of things including a natural gas leak, electrical problems, dirty air filters, vent problems, blockages, overheating, or a cracked heat exchanger. At Armor Air, we do what’s right to make sure your family is safe and comfortable. Give us a call to investigate the cause of these odors.
More Dust Than Usual
More dust normally means that there’s a buildup other than a dirty air filter. Call Armor Air’s technicians to inspect your vents and fix whatever is causing the excess dust in your home.
Loud Banging Noises
If you hear a banging or clanging noise when your furnace is running there could be a loose component or a problem with the motor blower.
