Warning Signs You Need Furnace Repair

There are several warning signs that indicate your furnace needs professional repairs, some more obvious than others. 

These warning signs include: 

  • Failure to turn on/produce heat 
  • A pilot light that is yellow instead of blue 
  • Abnormal noises and smells 
  • Insufficient or uneven heating 
  • Poor indoor air quality 
  • Carbon monoxide leaks 
  • Higher energy bills without excess use

If you’ve noticed any of these or other signs that something is wrong with your furnace, reach out to the team at J&R Herra Home Services to schedule a heating system inspection. We can come out to your home to look at the unit and identify the cause of the issue. If we believe that the problem can be adequately addressed with repairs, we will let you know and then immediately get to work resolving the issue. 

If, however, we think that you would benefit more from furnace replacement, we can help you find the right system to install. Sometimes, it makes more sense—practically and financially—to replace your furnace rather than keep repairing it. You can trust that our team will only provide honest recommendations based on our years of industry experience. We will never try to upsell you on a service or product we don’t truly believe you need. 

Maximizing Your Furnace's Lifespan

On average, most furnaces will last about 15 to 20 years. However, numerous factors affect the overall lifespan of your heating system. Some things can put excess stress on your unit, leading to more breakdowns and a shorter lifespan, while others can actually increase the efficiency and lifespan of your system.

Some of the many factors that affect your furnace’s expected lifespan include: 

  • The type of furnace you have (gas or electric, the brand, etc.) 
  • How often you use your furnace and how warm you like your home
  • Temperatures and the general climate in the area where you live
  • How often you schedule professional furnace maintenance 
  • How often you change or clean the air filter 
  • Whether your furnace is correctly sized for your space 
  • How well your furnace was installed 
  • Your furnace’s overall energy efficiency 

One of the best ways to increase the performance and longevity of your furnace is to schedule routine inspections and service with the J&R Herra Home Services team. During our annual maintenance visit, we can examine the various components of your system, clean them, and look for potential issues before they become larger, more expensive problems. This reduces wear-and-tear on your system and, ultimately, makes it last longer and work better.
