4 Symptoms Indicating Furnace Trouble Might Be Brewing

As the cold Canadian climate is upon us, have you thought about any issues experienced with your furnace from last year that are unresolved?

Here are 4 Symptoms that may indicate furnace trouble might be brewing:

  • Yellow Pilot- The pilot light on your gas furnace should be burning blue. A yellow pilot could point to trouble.
  • Chilly Rooms- If most of your home is comfortable, but one or two rooms are always chilly, your furnace might need to be repaired or upgraded.
  • Poor Air Quality- A failing furnace can cycle irritants and allergens through your home and cause trouble for allergy and asthma sufferers.
  • Age- It might seem like your furnace is doing just fine. However, if it is old enough for its own driver’s license, you should think about replacing it with a newer, more efficient model soon.

It may be time to get an annual furnace check up. Learn more and locate a qualified contractor to service your air ducts, furnace and air conditioning systems by going to the Heating, Refrigeration & Air Conditioning Institute of Canada (HRAI) Contractor Locator page, or calling 1-877-467-HRAI (4724). 

All HRAI Member Contractors have been prescreened and have the required trade licenses, technical certifications and insurance coverage to work on your system.
