Blowing Cold Air

If your furnace is blowing cold air, it could be a simple fix, or it could be the sign that you need professional furnace repair. The first thing you should do is check your thermostat fan setting. If the fan is set to auto or on, the furnace will continue to run even when your home is heated to the desired temperature. If your fan is already switched to off, the most likely cause of the cold air would be that your furnace overheated. This can be dangerous and you should call a professional.

Electricity Bills

If you notice that your electricity bill has skyrocketed, it could be a sign of furnace malfunction. Though it could be tested in the summer, this is a symptom you would notice more so during the winter months. You should compare your monthly electricity bills to previous years to determine if there is an unwarranted spike.

Unusual Noises

If you hear a loud popping sound while your furnace is running it could be the result of contracting air ducts. It’s possible you have a clogged air filter but noises like this require professional inspection. Another explanation for the popping noise could be an accumulation of dirt around the furnace.
