KIMBERLY FURNACE REPAIR
There’s nothing worse than waking up on a winter morning to find that the furnace went out in the middle of the night and the entire house is freezing cold. When this happens, homeowners’ only good option is to call for emergency furnace repairs. There are, however, a few ways that conscientious homeowners can avoid this potentially very costly problem.
Preventative Maintenance Reduces the Need for Repairs
Keep an Eye, Ear, and Nose Out for Signs of Trouble
If the furnace is blowing hot air, but it’s just not performing up to homeowners’ expectations, there could be a few things wrong. Blown fuses, loose wiring, and thermostat issues are all common causes of insufficient heating. Leaky ducts can also cause even a well-maintained furnace in good condition to be unable to keep up with the home’s heating needs.
Spikes in Monthly Bills
Homeowners should expect their gas bills to go up in the winter. In many cases, home heating accounts for up to 50% of monthly bills, no matter what kind of furnace homeowners have. If the utility bill spikes dramatically, though, it could indicate that something is wrong with the furnace.
Scheduling an inspection and Furnace Repair in Kimberly, Idaho immediately can bring monthly bills back down to a manageable level. Plus, fixing the problem now may prevent the need for more substantial repairs later in the season.
When the furnace itself is producing strange scents, it may be a much more serious problem. The unit may have a gas leak. Turn off the gas supply and call a technician immediately to avoid potentially serious health and safety concerns like carbon monoxide poisoning.
Repair or Replace?
There are a few factors a technician will consider when recommending repairs or a furnace replacement. If the unit is more than 15 years old or has been breaking down frequently, it’s almost always a better idea to replace it. Otherwise, consider the cost of the proposed repairs.
If fixing the problem will cost less than half the investment required to buy a new furnace, have it repaired. If not, start looking into newer models.
The Bottom Line
No matter what’s wrong with the furnace, it’s never wise to put off repairs. Instead, homeowners should schedule an inspection as soon as possible. Call us at (208) 732-1211 today to get started.
