    Recognizing the Warning Signs: Does Your Furnace Need Repair or Maintenance?

    When it comes to handling all your furnace repair needs, trust the reliable and experienced team at Chatham Comfort Controls of ChicagoLike any other home appliance, a furnace can exhibit certain telltale signs when it requires furnace repair or maintenance. By staying alert to these indicators, you can prevent potential breakdowns, ensuring the uninterrupted comfort of your home. Here at Chatham Comfort Controls, we believe homeowners should be well-informed about their heating systems. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of common signs that your furnace might require some attention:

    • Unusual Noises: While it’s normal for your furnace to make some noise, loud or unfamiliar sounds like banging, whining, or groaning could signify a mechanical problem. It might be a loose belt, a faulty ignition, or a problem with the blower motor. 
    • Increased Heating Bills: If your heating bills are rising despite normal usage, it could mean that your furnace is working harder than it should, often due to wear and tear or a lack of maintenance. This is an indication that your furnace might need furnace repair or tune-up.
    • Uneven Heating: Are some rooms in your home warmer than others? Uneven heating is often a sign of issues with your ductwork or a malfunctioning thermostat, which may require professional attention.
    • Frequent Cycling: If your furnace turns on and off more frequently than usual, it could signal a problem with your thermostat settings, a clogged filter, or improper airflow. 
    • Yellow Pilot Light: A healthy furnace pilot light should be blue. If it’s yellow or another color, it could indicate a problem with the combustion process and that your furnace produces potentially harmful carbon monoxide. 
    • Cold Air: Your furnace’s primary job is to produce heat. If it’s blowing cold air, this is a clear sign that something isn’t quite right. The issue might be as simple as a problem with the thermostat settings or as complex as a malfunctioning heat exchanger.
    • Age of the Furnace: Furnaces typically have a lifespan of about 15-20 years. If yours is within this age range or older, it may be more prone to problems and require more frequent maintenance or replacement.
    • Unpleasant Odors: If you notice a strange smell when your furnace is running, it could be a sign of a gas leak or an electrical issue. This requires immediate attention from a professional.
    • Frequent Repairs: If your furnace needs repairs more often than once every couple of years, it might be time to consider a more reliable, modern replacement. At Chatham Comfort Controls, we can help you evaluate your options.
    • Health Symptoms: Physical symptoms such as headaches, burning sensations in the nose and eyes, nausea, or increased asthma attacks can indicate a problem with your furnace, possibly due to a carbon monoxide leak. Immediate inspection of your heating system is needed in this case.

    Remember, prompt attention to these signs can mean the difference between a simple furnace repair and the need for a costly replacement. If you notice any of these signs, don’t hesitate to reach out to Chatham Comfort Controls. We’re here to ensure your furnace stays in top shape, providing reliable, efficient heat when you need it most.

Our professional team is well-versed in servicing a diverse selection of furnace types, ensuring that your specific heating system receives the care it requires.

    When it comes to handling all your furnace repair needs, trust the reliable and experienced team at Chatham Comfort Controls of ChicagoGas Furnaces: Popular for their efficiency, gas furnaces are a common choice among homeowners. These models burn natural gas to produce heat and require expert handling due to their complex components. Our specialists are proficient in servicing gas furnaces, ensuring optimal performance throughout the chilly Chicago winters.

    Electric Furnaces: Electric furnaces are known for their durability and longevity. These systems use electric heating elements to warm the air, and with fewer mechanical parts, they typically require less frequent repairs. However, when an issue arises, our Chatham Comfort Controls team is ready and equipped to handle it.

    Oil Furnaces: While less common today, oil furnaces are still found in some homes. They generate heat by burning oil stored in a tank. Despite the older technology, we have extensive experience maintaining and repairing these systems, ensuring they function as efficiently as possible.

    Regardless of the type of furnace installed in your home, Chatham Comfort Controls is committed to delivering top-notch furnace repair and maintenance services. We prioritize your comfort and satisfaction, ensuring your heating system remains in peak condition during those frosty Chicago winters.

    Understanding the Difference: Furnace Repair vs. Maintenance

    Regarding the health of your heating system, both furnace repair and maintenance play critical roles, albeit in different ways. Furnace repair typically comes into play when your furnace isn’t functioning as it should – maybe it’s not heating properly, making strange noises, or causing your energy bill to skyrocket. In such cases, our trained technicians diagnose the issue and perform necessary repairs to restore your furnace to its proper working order. 

    On the other hand, furnace maintenance is about preventative care. Regular maintenance helps keep your furnace running efficiently, prolongs its lifespan, and can even prevent many common issues before they turn into costly repairs. It’s a proactive approach that includes cleaning, inspections, and minor adjustments to ensure your furnace is in peak condition. At Chatham Comfort Controls, we recommend periodic maintenance as the best way to safeguard your heating system and your home’s comfort.
