There’s nothing worse than a heating system that just won’t act right. Here are 3 of the most common furnace problems we see at Heat & Air Controllers, as well as some helpful solutions.
Heat smells funny when I turn it on
Do you notice a strange smell when you turn your heat on for the first time? Wait and see if it goes away after an hour or so- if it does, there’s no cause for alarm. Dust builds up in the ductwork after long periods of inactivity, and it gets burned off when the heat turns on. However, if the smell persists, or if you notice any other strong odors coming from your vents, you should call Heat & Air Controllers for a furnace inspection.
Furnace blowing cold air in Eden, NC
Cold air blowing from the air registers is the last thing you want during fall and winter. Change your air filter to increase the airflow through the heating system. In addition, check to make sure the thermostat is set to AUTO instead of ON. If these steps don’t help, give us a call for a heating system tune up.
Heating system won’t turn on
This could be related to the previous problem, but it may also have something to do with your circuit breaker. Reset the furnace circuit breaker to see if it lost power. Furnace malfunctions can also be caused by gas leaks; if you smell gas in your home, leave immediately and call Heat & Air Controllers.
