Now that the summer heat has gone, you’re much more likely to rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout fall and winter. However, if your furnace isn’t functioning as optimally as usual, it may have gone bad. You may ask, “How can a furnace go bad?” Below are just a few ways your furnace can begin showing signs that it needs a fix.
Anytime you see moisture on your windows, walls, or ceilings, this usually means there’s poor airflow throughout your home. This can be a result of bad ventilation or a problem with your furnace. If you notice condensation, this most often means it’s a problem with the furnace, which needs to be addressed as soon as possible.
It may sound gross, but pests such as mice, rats, and insects can cause damage to your furnace. If you notice animal droppings around your furnace, and you’re having problems heating your home, you can probably figure out where the problem originated. Be sure to have an exterminator come in to eliminate the pests, then contact an HVAC professional to repair your furnace.
Frequent Thermostat Use
There’s nothing wrong with adjusting the thermostat every once in a while, but if you’re doing this constantly, your furnace may not be operating as intended. It could mean your thermostat is the issue rather than the furnace, but there’s no natural way to know until a qualified professional comes out and gives it a look.
