Signs You Need A Heating Contractor
There are many DIY projects and repairs around the house, but heating and furnace repairs aren’t one of them. If your heater is acting up, it takes a trained professional to diagnose and fix the problem as quickly as possible.
Here are the most common heating issues when calling for help as soon as possible is warranted.
- Strange Noises Is your heater making a strange noise like rattling or banging?
One way to tell how healthy your heater is is to listen to its sounds. These noises could indicate a developing problem that could cause the system to fail if you don’t deal with them.
- Yellow Flame If you have a gas furnace, check the color of the burner flame. The flame should be bright blue, which means it’s healthy. Call a heating repair company immediately if it’s red, orange, yellow, or any other color for your family’s safety.
- Uneven Heat Throughout The House An issue common with older heaters is uneven heating from room to room. If you notice one room is noticeably warmer than another, it could mean your system is losing efficiency; there is a problem with the motor or something else.
- Electrical Issues Finally, if your fuses blow or the breakers trip when your heater comes on, call a furnace repair service as soon as possible.

La Habra Furnace Installation
You won’t be as cold during winter as folks in other parts of the country, but it can get downright chilly here in La Habra, and you’ll need your heater to keep warm and cozy.
Even if your heater has run reliably for many years, that doesn’t mean there isn’t trouble brewing or it won’t suddenly fail.
The best way to prevent unexpected furnace failure is to replace it before that happens, so here are some tips that can help you decide if that time is now.
- Age One of the best ways to determine when to replace your furnace is by checking how old it is. If you’re like most homeowners, your furnace was there when you bought the house, so it could have been near the end of its lifespan when you purchased it. Checking the serial number should give you a clue when it was installed, and if it’s between 15 and 20 years old, plan on replacing it soon.
- Rising Energy Bills It’s natural for a furnace to lose efficiency as it ages, and your energy bills rise when it uses power to do its job. Sometimes, a furnace tune-up will bring things back to normal, but if that doesn’t solve the problem, a furnace replacement should be on your short list of upcoming home purchases.
- Loud Operation You’re probably used to the ambient noise your furnace makes when it’s running, so if it suddenly makes loud grinding, buzzing, or rattling sounds, it could be time to replace it, especially if the system is cracked or damaged.
- More Expensive Repairs Lastly, it’s normal for a furnace to break down more frequently during the last two years of its life and for the repairs to become more expensive. If you’re calling a repair technician every few months, contact a furnace replacement company for an estimate on a new model.
