We all know February is LOVE month, but I bet you didn’t know that could involve your heating system too. It’s true! Your furnace needs just as much care and special treatment as your significant other. (Ok maybe not quite as much!) If you want your “relationship” with your furnace to last, you have to treat it extra special once in a while. So, does your furnace need more love?
Here are five signs your furnace needs more love:
You’re seeing higher gas bills despite normal usage patterns
A furnace that hasn’t been properly maintained may use more resources to do the same heating it’s always done. If you are keeping your home at the same temperature but your gas bill is going up, your furnace may be telling you it needs more love!
You hear a vibration or rattling from the furnace
You know what they say, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. A noisy furnace is telling you it needs some work.
You need to set the thermostat higher in order to keep rooms comfortable
Are you finding that some rooms are feeling colder than normal, despite the thermostat staying the same? If turning the thermostat up is all you can do to stay comfortable then your furnace might need some help.
There is rust around the furnace or feeder pipes
Everyone knows rust on metal isn’t a good thing, especially on mechanical equipment! If you find rust on or around your furnace it may be a symptom of a greater problem. It’s just one more sign your furnace needs a little TLC.
You can’t remember when it last had a full tune-up
This one should be self-explanatory! If you can’t remember the last time your furnace was tuned-up then it’s been too long. We recommend a tune-up prior to each cold season, so it’s time to get that maintenance scheduled!
If your heating system is showing any of these signs of distress, don’t wait any longer! Apologize fast and shower your furnace with some tune-up love. A special tune-up will have your furnace feeling factory fresh in no time! Schedule yours today and we will send one of our expert technicians right to your door.
