The moment I started up the furnace in late fall, I knew there was a problem, but a strong odor of burning lint as well as an excessive amount of dust poured from the vents.
Although the system provided heat, there was absolutely less air, as well as it was making some honestly different sounds.
I tried changing the air filter as well as vacuuming out the vents, however my efforts made no difference. I figured it best to call for repair immediately. I didn’t want to risk causing further disfigurement by operating a malfunctioning system. Because our local winters tend to last for more than half the year as well as frequently bring uneven temperatures well below cold, the furnace is essential, and going separate from heat isn’t an option, as well as our yearly utility bills are always a concern. The furnace needs to operate at peak efficiency, capacity as well as reliability. At that time of year, all of the local HVAC companies were extremely busy. I needed to wait over a week for a specialist to come to the house, however during that time, I refused to run the furnace, as well as the property was especially freezing as well as uncomfortable. When the specialist ran tests on the furnace, he said that holding off starting it up had been the right decision. The buildup of dust as well as other debris within the inner workings was blocking airflow. The added wear as well as tear could have entirely caused the furnace to overheat as well as potentially caused substantial problems! Fortunately, all that was required was a thorough cleaning as well as tightening of a few wires. The furnace ran perfectly throughout the winter.
