First of all, we’d like to say how excited we all are for the spooky season. It’s time to take a break from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life and take out those scary decorations. We can finally start talking about costumes to wear and even what sweet treats to bake for our friends and family!
As we get into the spirit of the season, it’s important to remember what things in your life shouldn’t scare you. Your bills, your home, and most importantly, your heating system.
If you’re constantly waking up in the middle of the night from a booming or banging gas furnace and you’re worried about your home, then this blog post is for you. We’re specialists when it comes to HVAC in Plymouth, IN, and we can simply diagnose your system if you think there’s something wrong with it. All you need to do is call us!
What’s Going On?
Before we address your problem, it’s important that you take a look around your heating system and jot down anything you notice. When does it wake you up at night? What is the sound that it’s making when you’re frightened by it? At this point, you can call us and tell us what you find!
Keep in mind that a gas furnace shouldn’t scare you just because it burns natural gas. Natural gas is clean-burning and safe, and these systems are designed with many fail-safes to protect you and your family. That being said, neglect can sometimes lead to a safety concern, so don’t hesitate to call our team if you think there’s something unsafe about your furnace.
Booming Bumps in the Night
Booming is a sound that’s often associated with gas furnaces. A furnace can boom when natural soot and grime build up on the burners, essentially causing the gas to gather up before igniting. This is a small explosion occurring in your gas furnace. While it’s harmless to you, it can quickly become a safety concern if this small explosion ruptures more sensitive components of your furnace and causes a gas or carbon monoxide leak. Get your booming furnace fixed pronto!
Terrifying Energy Bills
Energy bills can be terrifying, no matter the time of year. In October, we can be frightened by the sheer cost of heating our homes, especially since we haven’t really been using our heaters since the spring.
Don’t worry, your heating system should be able to heat your whole home to your budget standards. If it’s running up the bill, then something could be wrong with the system and we can repair it.
Spooky Squealing Noises
Heating systems can sometimes squeal, and if they do then you’ll need to call us. Squealing can be the sign of a belt in your blower motor that’s about to go, or some component of your system that needs lubrication. Usually, this can be mediated by yearly maintenance, but we can also square away a squealing heating system with repairs.
