- WHY IS MY FURNACE NOT WORKING & WHAT SYMPTOMS SHOULD I WATCH FOR? When your furnace doesn’t function efficiently, the consequences don’t stop with higher utility bills. Faulty furnaces are a source of fumes, soot and carbon monoxide—a colorless, odorless gas that is dangerous to your family. Broken systems also pollute indoor air and pose a safety risk. Common furnace problems include:
- Unresponsive pilot light switches
- Pilot lights that don’t stay lit
- Filtration problems
- Broken blowers or belts
- Worn-out parts
- Clogged or sooty flue openings
- Emergency furnace repair
Do-it-yourself furnace repair puts you at risk, so we recommend hiring a professional to service your equipment. Easy maintenance like filter upgrades and inspecting the burner flames can be performed with little risk.
- WHY DOES MY FURNACE SMELL? When you fire up your furnace for the season’s first use, you may experience a burnt dust smell. This odor is harmless and should not last more than a few hours. To get rid of the smell quickly, try a filter change.
An electrical odor is more of a concern. Causes may include an overheated motor, broken fan motor, clogged filter, fried circuit or wiring problem. Turn off the furnace immediately and contact a professional. A burnt plastic smell may come from objects lodged in the furnace. Toys and other plastic objects give off fumes when heated, and this off-gassing may be dangerous to your health. Schedule service if the smell persists.
- DO YOU PROVIDE CARBON MONOXIDE TESTING? Yes! Even though you have carbon monoxide detectors installed throughout your home, professional testing is an essential safety service for gas-fueled appliances. Low levels of the gas may not be detected by home monitoring, and you may experience symptoms before the device alerts you. When the Cool Experts perform heating maintenance and repairs, we check for leaks and CO buildup. This dangerous gas is odorless and colorless, and it replaces oxygen in your body’s red blood cells. Low CO levels may cause headaches, fatigue, chest pain, dizziness or nausea. Exposure to higher levels of carbon monoxide puts you at risk for major tissue damage and may even lead to death. If you have not had a CO checkup in a while, it’s worth the peace of mind to schedule one.
- HOW MUCH DO FURNACE REPAIRS COST? Furnace repair costs are determined on a case-by-case basis and are dependent on whether your system needs an overhaul or you have routine needs like filter changes or belt replacements. An average repair cost range is $200 to $500, and your Cool Experts technician will provide an upfront estimate before beginning the work.
- HOW OFTEN SHOULD I MAINTAIN MY FURNACE? Cool Experts recommends a thorough annual inspection for furnace equipment. When you invest in a Comfort Club maintenance plan, our NATE-certified team will perform a safety checkup and inspect, adjust, clean and test HVAC equipment. In between maintenance visits and furnace repairs, be sure to change filters frequently.
