Good Reasons Not To Postpone Furnace Repair

Make that call before worn parts become broken parts

Taking care of small issues with your furnace when they initially crop up goes a long way toward minimizing long-term problems. Make sure your furnace remains healthy and reliable throughout winter—call for service now and be sure you’re dealing with a professional HVAC provider like Gross Heating & Air Conditioning, a Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer.

There are many reasons not to put off repair—the first of which is your comfort. Here are four more:

  1. Worn parts can become extensive, expensive problems. If you’ve noticed unusual sounds coming from your HVAC system, don’t diagnose them on your own. Those noises can be caused by loose or worn parts, pipes, or belts. Schedule a service call with a NATE-certified technician to investigate, repair, or replace parts before they become problematic.
  2. Your system may become permanently damaged. Even minor problems can cause big headaches when they’re not resolved as soon as possible. For example, a furnace that shuts off too soon could have a minor light switch issue. Ignore this small problem and the frequent start up and stopping can cause other components in your furnace to fail. That extra strain can do permanent damage requiring replacement.
  3. Repairing your furnace now can prevent an even more expensive emergency call at an inopportune time. The cost of an emergency visit may end up being even more expensive than a regular repair service call.
  4. Defective furnaces can be dangerous. There’s always possibility that your broken furnace is at risk of leaking carbon monoxide, gas, or oil. Why take a chance? Every family should have a carbon monoxide alarm installed in their home.
