The Valley of the Sun is certainly not a place with a reputation for cool, occasionally chilly summers. If you use a furnace to heat your home, it will likely take a long vacation for the next few months while your AC takes over the role of comfort-giver.
However, this is an excellent time to have furnace repairs done. You won’t need to have the furnace running, so repairs will create no disruption. The repair technicians will have more open calendars to schedule your repairs, since they will have far fewer summer air conditioner breakdown emergencies.
For your heating in Apache Junction, AZ, call Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning and schedule early those furnace repairs so you’re ready for the first cold day later in the year.
Furnace issues to repair
- Uneven heating: At the end of the winter, during days when the furnace was still running, did you notice that some rooms felt cooler than they should? Uneven heating points to a number of possible malfunctions in a furnace, such as faulty air handlers or the system short-cycling. In an electric furnace, it could be failed heating elements. Repair technicians will find the root cause and repair it.
- Unusual odors from the vents: Whether the smell your nostrils detected from the vents was musty or acrid, anything out of the ordinary needs investigation. A motor might be on the edge of burning out. The vents might be broken, allowing in stale air. Too much dirt could have gathered along the burner in a gas furnace.
- Weak and intermittent burner ignition: Whether your gas furnace employs a standing pilot light or an electronic ignition, it should light up all the jets along the burner. But if the burner turns on and off, or not all of the jets come off, you may have trouble with gas flow, valves, dirt, or corrosion. Repair technicians will need to remove the burner to inspect it and find out what is causing the problem.
Schedule maintenance sooner rather than later
Something else to consider for spring: has your furnace had maintenance during the last year? Usually, technicians inspect furnaces during the fall, but if you didn’t schedule it for the previous fall, you should have it done now rather than waiting for the upcoming fall. Maintenance will help you discover repairs that you may not have realized were necessary.
