One situation in which you should hire a technician for furnace repair is when you are in need of routine maintenance. While a furnace can last for a long period of time, those that are looking to extend its useful life for as long as possible should hire a technician to come once per year before the winter season starts. The technician will be able to ensure the furnace is working well, is safe, and is operating efficiently.
Increased Heating Bills
Another situation in which you should call a professional for furnace repair is if your heating bills are going up. While heating bills will fluctuate from one month to the next based on the temperature and other factors, if your bills are much higher than the prior year it could be an indication that your furnace is not working properly. A technician will be able to diagnose the issue with your furnace and make any necessary repairs to ensure it works efficiently again.
Odd Smells or Noises
The third situation in which you should call a technician is if you notice odd smells or noises. If your furnace seems to be omitting a smell of gas or a burning sensation, it could be an indication of a more serious problem. In these cases, you will need to contact your technician immediately. It would also be ideal to turn off your furnace until the issue is resolved.
