Signs Your Furnace Needs Repair
Furnaces are popular because they are known to be less expensive than electric, and they are great for older homes. When we come out to fix a furnace, we offer a full diagnostic, which includes identifying the issue you might have and giving you a detailed quote of the service.
Call for professional heating services if you notice any of the following:
- Unpleasant odors, especially electrical or smoke
- Needing to turn the heat up to get the same comfort
- Experiencing allergy-like symptoms
- Erratic cycling – Does your heater continuously turn on and off? There might be something wrong with the thermostat. Another reason could be that your heater is overheating, which is why it’s short-cycling to prevent further damage.
- Unusually high electric bill – If your electricity bill has gone up without a change in your energy usage, it could be a sign that your HVAC unit needs service.
- No heat is coming out - A lack of heat is an obvious sign that there is something very wrong with your heating unit. It could be something as small as a faulty thermostat, or it could be something as major as a heat exchanger.
- Unusual noises – It’s natural for your furnace or heater to make some noise when on, but if you hear rumbling or clunking sounds, it’s time to get an HVAC specialist to look at it. These sounds can indicate that your unit needs service.
In addition, we also offer a safety inspection to cover any gas leaks and threat of carbon monoxide poisoning. If you suspect your furnace might not be heating appropriately or if it emits odd smells when you turn it on, give us a call for an inspection. We also offer installations of energy-efficient furnaces from industry-leading brands.

Sometimes, heaters are beyond repair. If your heater is over 10 years old and not functioning at full capacity, it’s time to consider investing in a new one. Our experienced Austin heater repair technicians can help you determine which brand and model is the best option for your home.
Texas weather can be unpredictable, especially when it comes to the cold. One minute you’re enjoying a warm day and the next you need to pull out a sweater. Don’t wait until the temperatures drop to make sure your heater is working properly.
There are many parts that make up a heating unit, and many of those parts require special experience and tools to repair or replace them. A licensed technician should be contacted if a heater needs repairs because they know what to look for, and may be able to catch a small, inexpensive problem before it escalates to a full blown disaster.
