Cold winters, high energy bills, and noisy furnaces are all signs that you need furnace repair. Your heating system is critical to creating a warm, safe, and inviting home. Living with a furnace that has fallen into disrepair can be costly, frustrating, and potentially dangerous. Whipple Service Champions will help take care of your heating system. We proudly serve Salt Lake City, where our highly skilled technicians know how to fix any major or minor problems. As your fellow Utah residents, we will help you remain comfortable in your home throughout the year.
Whipple will make sure your pilot light doesn’t run out on you in the middle of the night. Winter or not, your furnace is necessary. Temperatures can dip to record lows, and you’ll never know when it will be too cold to turn up the thermostat. That’s why it’s important to keep your furnace in top shape.
Your furnace is tough, providing heat all year to your home. But it’s more important to have it repaired immediately than using it sparingly when it starts to underperform. From December to January, the cold gets intense, and you need the thermostat to be set to high temperatures all the time. We’ll help keep your heating appliance in working condition all year long, but you need to attend to furnace problems immediately.
You don’t want small problems like dirty filters and wear and tear to become worse. More often than not, minor furnace issues left unfixed can become expensive to repair. We want to help you avoid spending more than you should. Call on our technicians, and they’ll arrive at your doorstep as soon as possible to fix the problem. If you don’t know what to look for, talk to us about our Annual Maintenance Program. From tune-ups to routine inspections, we’ll keep your heating and cooling systems running safely and efficiently all year round.
We know it can be easy to forget about routine maintenance. Even when you inspect your furnace, it can be tough to find out if there is anything wrong with it. Here are a few basic signs that you may need to call our trained team of technicians to repair your furnace:
Are you paying more than usual for your furnace? Small differences are common, but if you pay a considerable amount more per month, you may have an inefficient furnace. Our team can sort it out and get you saving money on your monthly bills.
If your furnace doesn’t turn on or make any noises, it could be a tripped circuit breaker. There also could be problems with your thermostat, blower, or other systems. This is the hardest problem to troubleshoot without more experience, so it’s a good time to call a professional.
Not getting enough air? If your furnace is heating properly, just not very forcefully, you probably need a new furnace filter. Old filters can clog up your system and make it difficult for air to reach your vents. Inefficient heating can raise your gas bills, overwork your furnace, and lead to more problems later on. This is the simplest fix, so be sure you check your furnace filter and change it as needed.
This could be a number of problems, and some could be serious. A gas smell could mean that you have a gas leak. This is very dangerous, and you should immediately leave your home and call a furnace expert. Musty, burnt leaves or other smells could be leaves or moisture trapped in your fresh air intake, exhaust, or furnace. Check to make sure nothing is blocking any pipes. Otherwise, there could be a burnt belt or another component. Consider calling a professional if the smell persists.
From fans to belts, there’s plenty of moving parts that could be jostled around in a furnace. If the blower is working, but there are unusual sounds, you should consider contacting a professional. Your furnace may have a loose belt, an unbalanced fan, or other issues that may lead to bigger problems. Don’t wait until it’s too late and becomes a costlier repair.
While Whipple’s team of technicians are able to fix large and small issues with your furnace and overall heating system, there are some minor maintenance and repair problems you may want to handle on your own. If you’re looking to keep up our professional maintenance routine in-between service calls, take a look at some of these basic tips on how to fix your furnace:
Metallic echoes in your ducts could just be reverberating sound due to the exposed metals ductwork. Cut down on this bothersome sound with insulation surrounding your ductwork. This will not only dampen much of the sound, but it can also make your system more energy efficient. If your furnace is emitting rattling noises, be sure that the cover panel is screwed on tightly.
If you suspect your furnace or pipes may have a gas leak, the best solution is to leave your home and leave the door open. If you can locate your exterior gas line, you may consider turning off the gas to the house. This can be an effective safety measure. However, you’ll need a wrench, so make sure you have one readily available.
There are a few simple tricks you can use to help keep your blower running effectively. First, if you don’t feel enough air coming through your vents make sure your filter is new, or replace an old filter. Depending on the level of dust in your home and area, you may need to replace your filter more often than the recommended two or three months. If your blower doesn’t stop running, check your thermostat to make sure the fan switch is turned to auto. Otherwise, call our team of technicians to troubleshoot the problem and find the right solution.
