How Do You Know If Your Furnace Needs Cleaning?

How Do You Know If Your Furnace Needs Cleaning?

If you are like most people, you probably don’t give your furnace a whole lot of thought – that is, until it stops working. Then, you are scrambling to find a heating technician who can come out and take a look at it.

One of the most common reasons furnaces break down is that they haven’t been properly maintained. Just like any other mechanical equipment, furnaces need to be cleaned and tuned up regularly to keep them running smoothly. Contact LP Quality Air today to schedule an appointment for a heating tune-up in Simi Valley and Chatsworth, CA, and our technician will complete a tune-up for your furnace.

Here are a few signs that your furnace may need to be cleaned:

  • Strange noises: If your furnace makes any unusual noise, it is time to call a heating technician. These noises could be anything from banging or popping to creaking or grinding.
  • Yellow pilot light: The pilot light on your furnace should be blue. If it turned yellow, that’s an indication that there’s dirt and debris built up inside the unit.
  • Cycling on/off: If your furnace is turning on and off more frequently than usual, it’s a sign that it’s not operating as efficiently as it should be. It is often due to a buildup of dirt and debris.
  • Low airflow: If you notice that the airflow from your vents isn’t as strong as it used to be, it could be because your furnace is dirty and needs cleaning.
  • Energy bills on the rise: If your heating bills have been gradually increasing, even though you haven’t changed your heating habits, your furnace may be working harder than it needs to because it’s dirty and needs cleaning.
  • Uneven heating: If certain rooms in your home are hotter or cooler than others, it could be a sign that your furnace is not heating as efficiently as it should be due to a buildup of dirt and debris in your furnace.
