Signs You Need Furnace Repair in Northern Virginia

Catching the warning signs of an ailing furnace can save you a lot of time and stress. And the good news is that furnace systems are actually pretty chatty. If you know what to look (and listen) for, you can get right on getting professional repair before a real problem sets in. Contact John Nugent & Sons for furnace repair when:

  • Your furnace is failing to keep your home warm. This may seem like an obvious one, but the number of homeowners who just try to wait it out is surprisingly high! Waiting too long can result in serious complications, turning your furnace repair into a furnace replacement in a hurry.
  • Your energy costs are spiking. Modern furnaces are pretty efficient, and generally, maintain a relatively stable rate of energy consumption. So if your heating bill is getting higher and higher, you probably have a problem that needs professional repair.
  • You’re having airflow issues. Weak or poor airflow can kill the comfort levels in your home. This problem often relates to a dirty filter or clogged ducts, but a slew of problems can actually cause this. Contact a pro to get the answer you need!
  • Your furnace is making odd sounds. Clanks, bangs, and squeaks are never a good sign. Usually, these noises relate to component damage or loose parts in your furnace. This presents a very big risk and needs professional attention right away to avoid a total breakdown.
  • There are funky smells coming from your furnace. Dusty smells usually mean a system clogged with debris, while a musty, rotten odor may indicate mold. Either way, our team has the services you need!
  • Your gas furnace’s pilot light refuses to stay lit or is an odd color. A yellow pilot light indicates a lack of oxygen intake. This can result in a weak flame that often goes out; if it stays lit at all.

Furnace Repair FAQs

How long can repairs last on an older furnace?

Unfortunately, there’s not a set amount of time that repairs can last on an older furnace. Most experts and technicians consider furnaces installed before 2013 as “older.” If your older furnace functions smoothly following repairs and still heats your home well, it probably doesn’t need replacing yet. However, when problems continue to arise a few weeks or months after you’ve made repeated, expensive repairs, you might want to invest in a new furnace.

What will happen if I don’t repair my furnace right away?

Putting off repairs can damage your furnace and cost you more in the long run. As such, it’s best to call a qualified professional when you first notice a problem. When parts like a worn fan belt aren’t replaced immediately, it places additional stress on your furnace. Additional stress can lead to your furnace not working at all. Additionally, a malfunctioning furnace runs inefficiently, so your energy bill may rise significantly. Infrequently maintained furnaces can also emit hazardous carbon monoxide fumes.

What is the best time to schedule furnace repair?

Some furnace issues happen during season changes when the system gets more, or less, use. Furnace issues can worsen with time, so try to catch them early before they interfere with your system’s functionality. An experienced professional will troubleshoot the difficulty and repair it as soon as possible so you and your family stay comfortable.

Do certain furnace brands need to be repaired more than others?

We only install the finest, most durable brands in the industry that you can rely upon. As a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer, the furnaces we offer combine superb workmanship with the value of a brand name homeowners have trusted for decades. You can enjoy years, or even decades, of worry-free operation from your new furnace. Depending on the series and model you choose, Carrier warranties range between 10 and 20 years for some parts and components.

How does duct work repair affect my furnace?

Your air ducts play a major role in the efficient operation of your furnace. When grime or dust accumulates in your ducts, it can get into your furnace, reducing its effectiveness. Having an experienced technician inspect and clean your ductwork helps your furnace do its job.

Is there anything I can do to improve the efficiency of my current furnace?

Homeowners can increase the efficiency of their furnaces by having a yearly tune-up, like those offered by John Nugent & Sons. We check your heating system carefully, including the thermostat, air filters, vent pipes, and more. This gives you peace of mind, reduces the possibility of expensive repairs, enhances indoor air quality, and ensures your comfort.

How can I extend the life of my furnace and prevent the need for repairs?

Make sure that the filter stays clean. People who own animals that shed a lot should consider monthly filter changes. Having the ductwork of your home professionally cleaned every so often will also decrease the load on your furnace. Finally, check your thermostat to see if it’s working properly or needs repair or upgrading.
