Let Your Ears Tell You if Your Furnace is Acting Up

We might live in the desert, but it can get downright cold inside during the winter months, especially if your furnace is on the fritz. If you suspect your furnace might be acting up, your ears are a great tool in helping you decide if it’s time to call in a professional.

It’s Making Grinding Noises

If the sound coming from your furnace sounds like grinding, it’s likely you need to have the situation addressed as soon as possible. That’s because grinding is typically an indication that parts are knocking together, which should not happen when a furnace is running properly.

Another cause could be that some kind of outside debris made its way into the furnace and is bouncing around inside, doing damage to your furnace motor. If you hear grinding noises coming from your furnace, get in touch with a qualified repair company as soon as possible.

Is Your Furnace Humming?

If your furnace has started making humming noises, it could mean that some of your parts are starting to wear out and are working too hard. This is a good warning sign that some of the components that make up your furnace are on the verge of failure.

Your next step should be having the furnace checked out. A qualified professional will help you determine whether it is worth the investment to repair the worn-out parts. If it isn’t, replacement might just be the best option in your situation.

Losing Heating Power

Maybe your furnace simply does not heat as effectively as it used to. This could mean any number of things. It could need a replacement part, or just a good tune-up. A certified and licensed professional will be able to inspect your unit and determine the root of the problem and what needs to be done to have it taken care of.

Taking Care of Your Furnace

The best way to keep your furnace in prime running condition is to ensure it is well maintained.  Here at Precision Air, we offer great prices on heating system maintenance and tune-ups for heating and air conditioning units. Just call 602.Fix.My.AC to schedule an appointment.

      I wanted to make sure my air conditioner was ready for summer. Fernando came out and made sure my unit was tip top. He was friendly, professional and not a sales man. Thanks Fernando!

      Thank you Ray at Precision Air...the compressor on our AC went out last night and the house was HOT. This morning Ray was there to replace the compressor and had us feeling the cool air again in no time. Great customer service...quick response time and friendly from the first call until the repair was completed. Ray even offered to clean the filters! Thank you!!

      Precision Air is a company of integrity. I signed up with them August 1st, 2019 for their AC maintenance plan for 2 years... Someone from their office called me a week ago to set up their yearly maintenance visit. SO GRATEFUL.

      It was time to replace our AC, and so our choice was Precision Air, as we've been with them for over 20 years. Teman & Julian did an excellent job on the installation today, arriving on time.
