What’s Wrong with My Furnace?

Your furnace is an enclosed unit, with all its miscellaneous parts and components hidden away where you can’t see them. That means that when something goes wrong with your unit, there’s no way for you to know what needs fixing or replacing without taking the whole thing apart.

This is not only dangerous, but can also make your problem worse. Fortunately, our heating repair specialists have extensive experience safely pinpointing and resolving issues in your furnace. 

We can handle a full range of common and uncommon heating issues, in Cranberry Township and the surrounding areas including:

  • Dirty filters
  • Pilot light or electrical ignition problems
  • Malfunctioning blower or fan
  • Unresponsive thermostats
  • Dust or mold buildup

Signs You Need Furnace Repair

Your home's furnace is a crucial component of your comfort, especially during the cold winter months. It's important to be aware of the warning signs that indicate your furnace may be in need of professional repair. 

Addressing these issues promptly can help prevent further damage and ensure the efficient operation of your heating system. At Homer Nine and Sons, Inc., we specialize in providing reliable and efficient furnace repair services. 

Here are some common signs that it's time to give us a call:

Insufficient Heat

If you've noticed that your furnace is struggling to keep your home adequately warm or if there are cold spots throughout your house, it's a clear indication that something is amiss. 

It could be a problem with the thermostat, a faulty blower motor, or a malfunctioning heat exchanger. Our experienced technicians can diagnose the issue and restore the warmth and comfort in your home.

Strange Noises

Unusual noises coming from your furnace, such as banging, squealing, or rattling sounds, should not be ignored. These noises often indicate loose or damaged components, a worn-out belt, or a faulty motor. 

Ignoring these sounds can lead to further damage and potentially even a complete system breakdown. Our experts can identify and fix the source of the noise, ensuring your furnace operates smoothly and quietly.

Increased Energy Bills

If you've noticed a sudden spike in your energy bills without any other explanation, it could be a sign that your furnace is not functioning efficiently. A struggling furnace will consume more energy to maintain the desired temperature, resulting in higher utility costs. 

Our technicians will perform a thorough inspection to identify any issues causing your furnace to work harder than necessary, helping you save on energy expenses.

Frequent Cycling On and Off

If your furnace is constantly cycling on and off, known as short cycling, it can be an indication of various problems. It could be due to a clogged air filter, a faulty thermostat, or an issue with the blower motor. 

Short cycling not only impacts the comfort of your home but also puts unnecessary strain on your furnace, potentially leading to premature wear and tear. Our skilled technicians can diagnose the cause of the short cycling and restore proper functionality to your furnace.

Poor Indoor Air Quality

A malfunctioning furnace can have a negative impact on the air quality in your home. If you've noticed an increase in dust, excessive dryness, or a musty odor, it's essential to have your furnace inspected. 

Issues like clogged filters, ductwork problems, or a malfunctioning humidifier can all contribute to poor indoor air quality. Our team will identify and address these issues to ensure clean and healthy air circulation throughout your home.

If you've experienced any of these signs or have concerns about the performance of your furnace, don't hesitate to contact Homer Nine and Sons, Inc. Our skilled technicians have the expertise and knowledge to diagnose and repair a wide range of furnace issues. 

What To Do When Furnace Blows Cold Air?

When it's cold outside the last thing anyone wants to happen is cold air blowing out of their furnace. Why does this happen? There are a couple different causes for this. The most common one is a problem with the thermostat. 

It's important to make sure your thermostat's fan is not set to run continuously. If it is the system will blow air even when the furnace is not producing heat. Other than the thermostat, the second most common cause for the furnace to not produce hot air are dirty filters. 

Filters work to filter dust and debris in the air out before the air is blown through ductwork. If these filters are not changed every 90 days, the dirt and debris can build up and clog the filter. When a filter is clogged it restricts the air flow from the furnace.

How Can I Tell When My Furnace Is About to Fail?

If something’s wrong with your furnace, you want to know before the warm air stops flowing altogether. Learn to spot the signs that small damages and wear-and-tear are affecting your furnace’s performance and contact our Cranberry Township furnace repair team at the first sign of trouble. 

Common symptoms of a degrading furnace include, but are not limited to:

  • Cold spots
  • Dry air
  • Strange sounds and smells coming from your vents
  • Inaccurate thermostats
  • Furnaces that won’t turn off or on as they should

What Causes a Furnace to Make Loud Banging Noises?

If you notice a loud banging noise coming from your furnace when it kicks on, this is typically caused by a dirty burner within the furnace. This can lead to a delayed ignition. Dirt keeps the burner from igniting gas which makes the gas build up and make a loud banging noise within the furnace.

 If you have heard this noise, contact Homer Nine and Sons, Inc. for repairs today. This noise should not be ignored because it can lead to more extensive repairs like a cracked heat exchanger.

How Often Should You Clean Your Furnace?

To keep your furnace in the best condition and avoid frequent repairs, it is important to keep up with regular maintenance and cleaning. Keeping your furnace clean will not only prevent dust and dirt from distributing throughout your home, but it will also keep your furnace running efficiently, safely, and lasting longer. We recommend that you clean your furnace at least once per year.
