When to Call for Electric Furnace Repair
Maybe you’re one of the many Palm Springs homeowners who got used to that weird thing your furnace started doing a few months ago. Sure, it’s making an odd noise, but it’s still working, so everything is okay, right?
When you brush off or tune out something that’s out of the ordinary with your furnace, you risk having a much larger problem — and more expensive to fix — down the road.
So, when is it essential that you call a furnace contractor for help? Here are the most common problems that you shouldn’t ignore.
If you experience frequent breaker trips, flickering lights, or other electrical problems when your furnace kicks on, it’s a problem you don’t want to ignore and hope fixes itself.
If you’re like most homeowners, you don’t pay much attention to your heating system until there’s a problem or when the system fails. However, one issue you shouldn’t ignore is strange noises. Furnaces and heaters typically make ambient noise when powering up and down, but they shouldn’t make odd sounds like banging, squealing, or grinding. Ignoring these problems could lead to your system needing replacement sooner than necessary.
No Heat or Low Heat
If your heater isn’t producing the heat you want to make you comfortable, it’s not something you should accept or consider the new normal. When your heater fails to provide you with the heat it did before; it’s something best diagnosed by a trained professional.
Remember that it’s never a good idea to ignore a heater problem, no matter how insignificant it may seem. It’s always better to call a professional for an inspection rather than wait and hope the problem clears up on its own.
Four Reasons Furnace Maintenance is Essential
When September rolls around, you know that winter is just around the corner, which often means plenty of days and nights with temperatures below freezing. To ensure your furnace is ready to fight off Old Man Winter and keep you and your family comfortable during the winter months, it needs routine maintenance, and if you’re one of those homeowners who doesn’t think you need this service, here are a few things to consider.

Furnace Maintenance Keeps Your Family Healthy
Your furnace circulates air throughout your home, so the last thing you need is for it to spread dust and airborne pathogens, and pollutants that can make your family sick. Keeping your furnace clean and well-maintained ensures that you and your family are breathing clean air.
