Signs You Need Emergency Heating Repair in Chicago, IL

Furnaces don’t usually just break down out of nowhere. The vast majority of the time there are some clear signs to be seen (or heard) if you know what you’re looking for. Keep wary of:

  • Sudden cold spots. Cold spots can mean a whole bunch of different issues, from an air flow obstruction to an electrical issue. But no matter what the cause is, the result is the same: you and your guests are cold! It’s best to have this repaired as soon as possible.
  • Incorrect thermostat readings. Are your rooms feeling more like 60, but the thermostat is reading its usual 70-72? Trust your internal thermometer! Thermostats are a great tool, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be wrong.
  • Odd odors. If you rely on gas to heat your home you need to be particularly sensitive to strange smells. The additive they put in natural gas, mercaptan, smells strongly of rotten eggs or sulfur (technically much closer to sulfur, but folks often use the “rotten egg” comparison). Smell gas? Call an emergency technician now. And while you wait it’s best to shut off your gas completely.
  • Loud or weird noises. From popping and banging to squeaks and rattles, furnaces can make a lot of noises you don’t want to be hearing. They all indicate a different part, but they all also indicate that a part is broken, loose, or worn out. Failing to get this repaired quickly can lead to extensive damage, and potentially even a furnace replacement.  
  • Bizarre electrical occurrences. Got flickering lights, or do breakers keep tripping? Be very thorough and try to find out what exactly is causing your electrical issue. Does it happen when the furnace kicks on? Kicks off? While it’s running? Any of these will mean a pretty risky electrical issues, so call for emergency service as soon as possible to keep your Holiday guests safe and warm.
