Regular Checkups on Your Furnace
It is highly recommended by most experts to get a yearly clean and check on your furnace before winter. It might seem unnecessary, but it’s akin to getting a yearly physical. You might not need it, but if something is wrong, you’re glad you did it. With newer units, you can go as long as a couple of years without getting it tuned, but as your system gets older, the more you will want that checkup to be yearly.

Common Reasons for Furnace Repairs
It’s always good to be in the know for what to look for when you need to service your furnace. Here are some things that Around The Town Heating & Cooling sees frequently when repairing furnaces for our loyal clients.
Filters that are clogged and dirty will hinder the performance of your furnace. If it is clogged, your system will try to overcompensate by pushing more hot air to heat your home, which in turn can further damage your system.
Frequent Cycling Between On and Off Modes
If you are experiencing that your furnace keeps switching on and off frequently instead of at it’s consistent rate, you may have some issues with your system. Call Around The Town Heating & Cooling to check on your unit if this is happening to you.
Inconsistencies with your thermostat can definitely cause some confusion and problems. A thermostat acts as a sort of the brain for your heating system and makes sure that your house stays at a constant temperature that you set it. If it is malfunctioning, then you can have some issues such as recurrent cycling of your furnace from off to on, or you may have a cold house despite the fact that you set the thermostat at 73°F.
Strange Noises and Grumbles
Hearing some noise while your furnace is running is normal. These noises are caused by the fan and blower in your heating system. If you start hearing loud bangs, squeaks, rumbles, rattles, and clanks; these may indicate that your furnace has run into some issues. It is important to call one of our professionals if this starts to happen with your furnace.
Wearing Down of Components
Furnace components will gradually break down over the years. Items that can deteriorate include belts, fan blades, bearings, switches, motors, filters, pilots, and burners. Here at Around The Town Heating & Cooling, we make sure to check these components whenever we perform a clean and check on any furnace unit.
