Signs You Need Your Furnace Repaired

At Yavapai Plumbing & Heating, we specialize in furnace installation in Prescott Valley AZ and have helped many customers upgrade from old furnaces to newer, more efficient models. In addition to furnace installation, we also offer certified heating technicians to perform a variety of repairs on your existing furnace. While seasonal maintenance does prevent most furnace problems, there are a few telltale signs that you need to call us for emergency furnace repair:

  1. Soot deposits or buildup. Soot builds up when your furnace combustion is incomplete. This could indicate that the burners need to be moved or that your heat exchanger is cracked. Both of these are pretty major problems that need be addressed quickly.
  2. Short cycling. Short cycling occurs when your furnace kicks on and runs for only a couple minutes, and then stops. This repeats in rapid frequency. Short cycling can indicate a problem with your heat exchanger or your thermostat and needs to be fixed quickly as it puts undue strain on your furnace.
  3. Strange or uncommon noises. You really shouldn’t hear many pops, clicks, or other loud noises. If you do, there could be sediment buildup, which is a major furnace problem.
  4. Gas smells or frequent illnesses. These can both be indicators of too much carbon monoxide, which is dangerous for you and your family. Call us immediately if either of these is a factor.

By calling us to fix these issues quickly, you will help make sure that they don’t turn into bigger problems. If you experience any of the above or another furnace issue, call us immediately. With fast service and knowledgeable professionals, we will have your furnace up and running again in no time.
