Your furnace is one of the most important elements in your Myrtle Beach, SC, home – without it, you could be left in the cold. At Swift Services, we offer furnace repair, maintenance and installation services that you can trust.
Signs That Your Furnace Needs to Be Repaired
So how can you tell if your furnace needs repair, maintenance, or replacement service? Look out for these common symptoms:
If you hear clicking within your system, a cracked heat exchanger could be responsible. This issue is serious. A cracked heat exchanger could be letting carbon monoxide into the air. Turn off your gas valve and furnace immediately if this is the case.
Burners Making Booming/Rumbling Sounds
If your system hasn’t been cleaned recently, a buildup of dirt may be causing this issue. Dirt blocks gas jets and stops ignition, which means your furnace can’t light. Tune ups and testing can help prevent this issue from occurring.
Clanging Sounds from the Blower
If you notice loud clanging sounds from your blower, it may be because the motor belt is dislocated, has worn down or is broken. Sometimes you may be able to repair this yourself. If you’re not confident, call a professional to resolve the issue.
Grinding and Squealing Noises
If the motor bearings in your furnace are dirty, broken or worn down, they may cause grinding or squealing noises. To avoid overheating and blowing out your motor bearings, make sure to get it repaired quickly.
Along with grinding and squealing noises, a dirty furnace will reduce your home’s indoor air quality. This could become an issue in your Myrtle Beach, SC, household, especially if someone in it struggles with a respiratory issue.
If you aren’t sure what is causing the unusual behavior in your furnace, our professional technicians at Swift Services are ready to diagnose the issue. Contact us today to see how we can help bring comfort back to your Myrtle Beach, SC, home.
How to Choose the Right Furnace for Your Home
