Brookline, NH Homeowner Looks for Help
The most critical sign of a furnace emergency is the smell of gas in the home. In this instance, you should shut down the entire system and get yourself, your family and any pets out of the home immediately. If your furnace has stopped working and is no longer heating the home absent of a suspicious smell, this is also considered an emergency and requires attention as soon as possible.
A homeowner in Brookline noticed that his furnace was no longer turning on, despite the temperature dropping in the home. Concerned that the situation may be dire, he contacted the professionals at Joyce Cooling & Heating.
Furnaces That Are Malfunctioning Need Immediate Service
When your unit is no longer heating the home, you will want to check the pilot light on the furnace. If the light is no longer blue and instead you see a yellow color, these is most likely a problem during the combustion process. Loud noise or banging sounds coming from the furnace may mean that a part inside the unit has come loose or dislodged. Both of these are signs that your furnace requires immediate attention from a professional.
When your home’s HVAC unit is not operating properly, or at all, this requires a visit from a trained technician. Furnaces that are malfunctioning can produce carbon monoxide, a toxic gas that can be harmful to anyone in the home. A furnace that isn’t operating properly can also put you at risk for an electrical fire.
If your furnace stops working and is no longer turning on to heat the home, it is a good idea to shut the system off until you can have an HVAC technician service the unit.
The homeowner in Brookline turned off his furnace. A Joyce Cooling & Heating technician was able to visit the same day, diagnose the problem and get this homeowner’s system back up and running.
