Vigilance Pays Off

When you’re trying to figure out whether your furnace needs help, the more vigilant homeowner is always going to save more money and time. By vigilance, we mean your tendency to avoid neglecting things like heater noises, high heating bills, foul odors, and other signs that your furnace needs help. Yes, it’s up to you to call our team for help when you notice something wrong. The longer you go ignoring problems, the more likely it is that your heater breaks down or you end up paying way more money than you should on repairs and inefficiency.

  • “My heater is making noises.” What kind of noise is your furnace making? Is it rumbling, booming, rattling, grinding, or shrieking? Each of these types of sounds can signify a completely different problem. While we could go on about what each sound signifies, the truth is that you’ll need to rely on a team of professionals to fix your system regardless. So, take down the sound, or what it sounds like to you, and make sure you communicate it to our team!
  • “My heating bills are getting a little high.” This is a great way to determine if your furnace needs help. An inefficient furnace, or a furnace with a problem, is going to use more fuel to function than one in perfect condition.
  • “I’m not happy with my heat.” What’s the point of having a heating system if it doesn’t give you heat? Call our team today and tell us about the temperature in your home. There could be something wrong with your thermostat, or maybe your heater needs a fix in order to provide the proper amount of heat to your home.
  • “My furnace hasn’t been maintained.” We understand the anxiety that comes with skipping maintenance. You could think your furnace needs help because you missed maintenance. That being said, if no problem has reared its head yet, maybe you could get by with just scheduling a late maintenance visit. We’ll tell you if we notice any repair needs cropping up.

GRmetro Heating and Cooling Inc has your back. Just give us a call for furnace repairs!
