Your Furnace Could Need Repairs Today

Mar 8, 2021

Furnaces don’t peter out in the best situations. Sometimes it’s right when you’re picking the kids up from school, you’re traveling for the weekend, or maybe it’s when you have a doctor’s appointment. All of our first instincts are to forget about it in the short-term and worry about it down the road. We get it, it’s an easy trap to fall into.

Unfortunately, this will ultimately harm the condition of your heating system and lead you to an unsafe, inefficient, and impractical furnace. The longer your furnace repair in Santa Fe, NM goes untreated, the more likely it is that you will pay for it down the road in one way or another.

Don’t believe us? Well, you don’t have to just take our word for it. Let’s talk about ways to detect the need for furnace repair. This should help you figure out whether or not you’ve got an urgent need to call us for.


It Is Urgent

About a month ago we spoke in a blog post about how important it is that you get your furnace repaired sooner rather than later. However, that’s not really the whole story. The hardest part of being a furnace owner in Santa Fe is figuring out whether your furnace needs repairs at all! Many homeowners might have a malfunction occurring right under their nose but just don’t have the background to address it.

Here are just a few ways to tell if you need furnace repairs. If any of these sound familiar, just give us a call so we can address them.

Strange Noises

Noise are one of the first and easiest signs you might notice that indicate there’s something wrong with your heater. From banging, to rattling, booming, shaking, squealing, or shrieking, all of these represent something that’s gone wrong. No, you don’t need to panic, since there’s really nothing you can do about them if you cherish your furnace’s warranty or the sensitive interior components. Call our team for help.

Foul Odors

A gas furnace is never supposed to smell bad, and if it does, this could signal a pretty serious problem. Your furnace could be leaking gas or overheating, which each have their own unique problems and safety concerns. Shut your system off and call our experts to address the problem so your furnace can be safely operated.

High Bills

High fuel bills represent inefficiency in your heating system. This means that something isn’t lined up right, a component is starting to fail, and that the system is using too much fuel to heat your home properly. Contrary to many myths about heaters, this is not a good sign and it can be reversed. Just call our team today.

Cold Temperatures

We know that it’s pretty much springtime, but that doesn’t mean things are immediately going to be 70 degrees and balmy. There are still some chilly nights ahead of us and your heater should be able to provide comfortable temperatures. If it can’t, then this is cause to call us for heater repairs. There could absolutely be something wrong with it.
