A furnace is essential to keeping your space heated sufficiently. There are many signs that something may be amiss with your equipment. Knowing them ahead of time will save you time and frustration.
LACK OF RESPONSE WHEN TWEAKING YOUR THERMOSTAT
Raising the temperature on your thermostat should always result in a response from your thermostat. If this stops happening, it could be a sign of trouble with your furnace.
A DISCOLORED PILOT LIGHT
If your pilot light is yellow, this is actually a sign of an equipment problem. A healthy pilot light should be blue because it demonstrates a healthy combination of gasses involved in providing your heat.
A heat pump or furnace producing an unusual sound likely needs servicing. There are a variety of issues that can cause a unit or duct work to create odd noises including loose parts or obstructions.
SIGNS OF UNEVEN HEATING
Your home may have developed uneven heat. You may be experiencing chills in certain spots or even ice. The same amount of heat could also be causing your bills to skyrocket.
It goes without saying that none of these possible problems are a good sign. These and more signs could be very serious indicators that you need to have your equipment inspected and possibly repaired. It is safest to err on the side of caution so that you do not face larger problems. When you need assistance, seek a qualified professional.
