When is it Time to Have My Furnace Serviced?

This time of year brings a laundry list of things to check off the to-do list before the holidays arrive, so one less thing on your plate is always a good thing.

As the temperatures cool and your furnace begins to kick on more frequently, making sure your furnace is in working order should be at the top of your list. Fortunately, having your unit serviced can be an easy affair if done properly. If you notice any of the following, contact a professional at Mason Mechanical to come check things out:

  • Odd noises: Now, even though furnaces are notorious for making odd sounds and scaring children and adults alike, that doesn’t mean you should expect them. If you’re hearing many noises beyond the steady hum of the unit working, there may be an issue with your unit or in your ducts.
  • Strange smells coming from the vents: Warm air from the vents is a great thing, but if it is accompanied by dusty or smoky smells, that could signify a larger problem that needs to be fixed. With furnaces, early detection of issues is the best way to save money and identify a problem before it becomes a costly repair.
  • Uneven heating is not a sign of a healthy unit: If your bedroom is roasting while the kitchen requires ear muffs, then your unit is not working the way it should be. This can be the furnace or your ductwork, so let an expert scope it out.

Before you waste a moment longer worrying about your furnace, call an expert in furnace repair at Mason Mechanical to check out your furnace and make sure it’s working the way it should be this winter. Mason Mechanical has the experience and knowledge to help you make the best decision about your next required maintenance or repair.
