Heating systems are built to last, but as with all mechanical equipment, they sometimes break down. Here are some of the most common reasons our customers schedule furnace repairs:
- Furnace won’t turn on: Before you panic, make sure no circuit breakers have tripped and set the thermostat to “heat.” Turn the temperature up and wait for a minute or two. If these basic troubleshooting tips don’t work, call Collins.
- Not enough heat: Something could be wrong with the burners or the heat exchanger if the air feels lukewarm. If there’s insufficient airflow, try changing the filter. If this doesn’t work, you may need professional repair.
- A yellow or flickering burner flame: This is a sign that carbon monoxide is entering your home. Open windows and doors to let fresh air enter, step outside, and call Collins for help.
- Odd sounds or smells: Banging, rattling, and popping are common sounds you might hear if your furnace is acting up. A burning, smoky, or rotten odor could also mean something is wrong. Don’t wait around to find out, call Collins for the professional heating repair you need.
