Happy Early New Year! It’s no fun worrying that something can go wrong with your heating system going into the New Year. But, this is why we’re here. We want to give you the peace of mind you deserve when heating your house. Our level of commitment to our customers and superior service is why we like to provide homeowners with helpful tools and FAQ’s. Eastland Heating & Cooling put together a well-thought-out list of questions most first-time homeowners might have about their home heating system. 

1. When Should I Call for Furnace Repairs? 
If you have a problem with your Furnace, such as a leak, burn out the pilot light, unsettling noises, or any other concerning issues you should call for a diagnostic immediately. Waiting for furnace repair will likely increase the severity of the problem, thus making a repair or replacement more expensive. 

2. How Often Should I Replace My Furnace Filters?
Your furnace air filter collects dirt and dust to prevent particulates from entering the system or the air in your home. Therefore, you will want to check your filter monthly, or at the very least, once every three months, and replace it when necessary. 

3. Why is my Furnace Tripping The Breaker?
When it is said that the circuit breaker “trips,” it means that circuit has detected what’s known as a “fault condition” and has shut itself off to prevent the wiring from overheating and potentially igniting itself.  Our experts suggest resetting the switch located within your breaker box. However, if that doesn’t fix the issue at hand, there may be a more pressing matter wiring your home heating system. 

4. Why Doesn’t My Furnace Get Enough Heat?
There are several reasons why there is not enough heat coming from your furnace, including the compressor, which is responsible for heating the air, the blower motor, which pumps the heated air into the ductwork and throughout your home, or even just a dirty filter. Our certified technicians claim that a dirty air filter is usually the cause of the problem, so check that first. 

5. Why is My Furnace Making a Loud Noise and Shaking Hard?
This could be the metal-air ducts expanding and contracting as the temperature changes or it could be something serious. Regardless, you don’t want to wait around to see. If you have kids around the house, you know that any noise is scary. If you are experiencing any unusual sounds, you’ll want to give one of our professionals a call right away.
