It is always wise to have a regular inspection and tune-up done so that you will have a better idea of the current condition of your heating system. So if you have not had this done recently, or have never had it done, better to do it now and find out what repair needs are already in order.

Common Furnace Problems

Every true professional in the industry knows there are a few common calls that come in and when it comes to heating in the Urbana area that is usually that the person has little to no heat even though the system is cycling. When the temperature drops considerably it can be easy to assume this is the reason but a well cared for furnace will heat no matter what the temperature is outside. One of the first things to do is check and make sure there is nothing blocking the flow of warm air and that the registers are all fully open.

You can also check to make sure the filters are clean and free from debris; this means changing them if it has been more than a month or two. And if none of this helps then you know for sure it is time to call in a professional. Other indications that you need to call the experts include but are not restricted to:

  • Squealing Noises – This sound usually indicates that a belt connecting the motor and fan is out of place. This is a red flag that you need to shut off the system and call in a pro.
  • Pinging or Popping Sounds – Thermal expansion is often the cause if the sounds are coming from the duct work. You can attempt to trace the sounds to the root and see if pressing a small dent there cause it to stop.
  • Grinding – As with other pieces of equipment, this noise usually indicates that the bearings are finished and need to be replaced.
  • Rattling noise – Could be something as minor as a cover panel needing to be screwed in to place tighter or possibly something more serious.
