Signs Your Furnace Needs Repair

While a full-scale breakdown of your furnace may be obvious, many furnace issues start small and can go unnoticed for months, eventually leading to major problems. As such, it is important to have your furnace regularly maintained by a certified St. Paul furnace repair technician and to pay attention to certain key signs of failure.

A Few Signs Your Furnace Needs To Be Repaired Include:

  • It won't turn on or stays on
  • It won't heat evenly or at all
  • It's leaking or making strange noises
  • It smells like something is burning

Why Is My Furnace So Loud?

While it is common for a furnace to generate some noise, loud, unfamiliar sounds can be an indication that a repair is needed. A noisy operation can be caused by a host of problems, which typically stem from a damaged or loose mechanical component within the furnace. It is important to note that each noise could indicate a different problem.

Common Furnace Noises & What They Mean:

  • Rattling – The most common cause of this noise is a loose screw that just needs to be secured. However, in some cases the heat exchanger is the source of the problem. If the heat exchanger is damaged or cracked, not only will your furnace start rattling, but it can also cause a carbon monoxide leak. As this is extremely dangerous, it is imperative you bring in a heating expert right away.
  • Banging – When your furnace’s burners become dirty it can impact their ability to properly ignite, usually causing a delay. This results in a banging noise when the burner does eventually light. Ductwork adjusting to fluctuations in the pressure could also be the cause of this unsettling noise.
  • Screeching – This is typically an indication of an issue with your furnace’s blower. If the wheel on the blower has loosened or the motor needs to be oiled, you may start to hear the unpleasant screeching from the system. A simple repair to resolve this issue will allow your furnace to continue running smoothly and efficiently.
  • Whistling – If your air filters have become blocked by dust or other debris, you may begin to hear a whistling sound when your furnace is running. However, your ductwork could also be the culprit. Air ducts that are not aligned or connected properly to the furance, or ducts that are undersized, can also cause this noise.

It is clear that a number of these noises could have varying causes, some of which can be hazardous to your home or damaging to your furnace if left untreated. That’s why it’s important you consult with a professional St. Paul furnace repair technician from our team at the first sign of a problem. We will be able to diagnose where the sound is generating from, which will allow us to determine what repair is necessary to get your furnace back up and running.
