How To Handle Furnace Emergencies
Walking into a house that is colder than the temperature outside can be a nightmare. Not only is it a major inconvenience for your home, but also it can post safety concerns if temperatures are below freezing.
The moment you notice an emergency you should call for help. Our technicians are available for 24/7 support, so you know you’ll get the help you need. While you wait for our arrival you can also be proactive and take some steps like moving any blockages away from your furnace so our technicians can get to work.
When Should You Call a Professional for Repairs?
No one really wants to spend their hard-earned money on unexpected home repair. However, there are some situations that require the immediate help of a professional, and they include:
- Cold air blowing from furnace: If the air is cold and your furnace is older than 12 years, it might be time for a new one. If it’s not older than 12 years, your ductwork could be in disarray.
- Smelling gas: If you smell gas, leave your home and call a 24-hour company. This is a sure sign that something isn’t right and you could have a leak. Do not attempt to fix this yourself.
- Furnace is cycling rapidly: If you’ve checked your thermostat and air filter, yet still find the furnace to cycle rapidly, there could be something wrong internally with your HVAC system.
- Increased utility bill: In the heat of summer and dead of winter, increased utility bills are common. If they are far higher than you remember from previous years, this issue could be related to your furnace.
Prevent Your Furnace From Breaking
There might not be any guaranteed ways to keep your furnace from breaking when you need it most. However, a few simple maintenance steps could ensure it gets you through the winter.
As mentioned earlier, changing the filter is imperative. This keeps dust and debris from blocking flow. Blocking flow makes your unit work harder and give out sooner.
The second biggest step you can take is scheduling yearly maintenance with Lascko Services. Our technicians will perform a thorough inspection of your furnace and make any repairs or adjustments as needed. Not only will this extend the life of your furnace, but also it will help you avoid major emergency repairs.
