Homeowners who use furnaces should always be vigilant of problems during this time of year. It doesn't matter how careful you were with preventive maintenance; there is always a chance that something will go wrong with the system. More strain on the furnace increases the likelihood of that happening. If you want to keep your furnace in the best possible shape, have a look at some of the following signs that it needs repair.
Depending on how long you've had your furnace for, you probably know what it's supposed to sound like while it's on. If you notice any strange noise coming from your furnace, even if it doesn't seem like that big of a deal, you should call a professional and have them examine the system. Unusual noises are usually a sign that the furnace is experiencing some sort of problem, some of which are more urgent than others.
One of the easiest ways to tell if something is wrong with your furnace is if it stops heating properly. A drop in output could signal any number of issues with the system, including clogged burner jets, a malfunctioning pilot light, or a clogged air filter, to name a few. Dropping output is usually a sign that the problem is quite advanced, so make sure that you have a professional look at the system right away.
If your heating bills are rising month to month, and there's no clear indication of why they're doing so, it could mean that your system is having some sort of problem. Monitor your heating bills, and call for repairs as soon as you notice this happening.
