Signs You Need Furnace Repair
Heating systems are built to last, but as with all mechanical equipment, they sometimes break down. Here are some of the most common reasons our customers schedule furnace repairs:
- Furnace won’t turn on: Before you panic, make sure no circuit breakers have tripped and set the thermostat to “heat.” Turn the temperature up and wait for a minute or two. If these basic troubleshooting tips don’t work, call ABC.
- Not enough heat: Something could be wrong with the burners or the heat exchanger if the air feels lukewarm. If there’s insufficient airflow, try changing the filter. If this doesn’t work, you may need a professional repair.
- Burner flame is yellow or flickering: This is a sign that carbon monoxide is entering your home. Open windows and doors to let fresh air enter, step outside, and call ABC for help.
- Odd sounds or smells: Banging, rattling, and popping are common sounds you might hear if your furnace is acting up. A burning, smoky, or rotten odor could also mean something is wrong. Don’t wait around to find out—call ABC for the professional repair you need.
What Do I Do if Furnace Repair Doesn’t Work?
While repair is often the preferred choice, problems like a consistent repeating complication or extra-costly furnace repair parts might start leading you in a different direction. Remember that repair is only the preferred option when the cost of seeking it makes sense! If you’re shelling out for repair every single year, then it might be time to talk to your heating contractor about furnace replacement.
The cost of a new furnace might make you balk at first thought, but with modern manufacturers offering an extremely diverse range of options with varying AFUE ratings, optional accessories, and more, there is a furnace to meet any budget! It’s just important that you work with the right service team and experts that will work with you rather than try to “sell” you.
Why Did My Furnace Stop Working?
It’s a question we’ve all probably asked ourselves from time to time—one that probably prompts you to seek emergency heating service right away. But before you do, there are a few possible conclusions that have a fairly simple solution. Before you go seeking 24-hour furnace repair, try out these:
- Inspect the thermostat. Sometimes the controls get bumped, sometimes a family member might be having a laugh. Before you call for heating repair, make sure the thermostat is set correctly!
- Check your air filter. Restrictions in air flow can cause the furnace to run poorly and will eventually trigger overheating (and a subsequent shutdown). Check your air filter first, as it is the most common cause of this fairly commonplace issue.
- If you use gas, check the pilot. When a homeowner is looking for ways to fix a gas furnace, the pilot should always be the first thing you check. See that it is on and burning blue (orange indicates burning impurities), and if it is not, try simply resetting it before you call for repair.
If the above furnace troubleshooting tips don’t help you out, call on ABC for HVAC emergency service! We’re the local HVAC contractors in Chicago that you can trust for complete heating and air conditioning repair—just dial 888-868-6667!
Benefits of Professional Furnace Repair

- DIY repairs could void the manufacturer’s warranty.
- Professional tools are required to conduct many furnace repairs.
- Natural gas-related repairs could prove hazardous to your health and safety.
- Professional repairs come with parts and labor warranties for your peace of mind.
