Signs You Need Furnace Repair Crystal Lake
If it’s been a while since you’ve had your furnace inspected and repaired, now is the time to do it. Older, unmaintained furnaces gas leak gas or hazardous fumes, like carbon monoxide throughout your home, which can be life-threatening to you and your family.
1. You Can’t Remember Your Furnace’s Last Maintenance Date
If you cannot remember your furnace’s last maintenance date or it’s been more than 12 months since you’ve had it inspected, our furnace repair technicians recommend getting it inspected to look for common problems, like issues with the burners, cracked heat exchanges, and proper gas or electrical flow to the furnace and thermostat. Getting these issues corrected before your furnace completely breaks can save you money in the long run and prevent you from experiencing dangerously cold temperatures inside your home.
2. You Smell a Strong Odor or Gas
Your furnace should not give off any odors at any time. If you notice the smell of rotten eggs, your furnace could be leaking gas, which can cause a catastrophic explosion. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace and the gas service to your furnace and call our repair technicians immediately. In addition to the smell of gas, you shouldn’t smell any hot smells or smells of burning rubber. This could indicate a problem with the wiring of your furnace or indicate that something is broken or stuck inside your furnace and rubbing against other parts.
3. Your Furnace Fails to Heat Your Home to the Thermostat Setting
When your home fails to reach the thermostat setting, it could be a problem with the unit’s heat exchanger, blower fan or thermostat. Our furnace repair technicians in Crystal Lake can determine the causes of your partial furnace failure and remedy them so that you can have warm temperatures inside your home.

In this instance, you should turn off your furnace and call our repair technicians to schedule an immediate furnace repair Crystal Lake.
