Furnace Down? Call ROX Right Away

As temperatures plummet in Highlands Ranch, Littleton, and all around the south Denver area, ensuring consistent home warmth becomes paramount. But what happens when your trusty HVAC system falters in the face of a cold front? Recognizing the signs of a furnace breakdown and taking preemptive measures can alleviate discomfort and minimize potential damage.

Is your home suffering from an HVAC breakdown? Here are some telltale signs to watch for:

  • Frozen Pipes: This is a serious red flag. If you hear strange gurgling sounds or notice frosty pipes near your furnace or water heater, act immediately. Frozen pipes can burst, leading to costly repairs and water damage.
  • Uneven Heating: Does your home feel like a patchwork quilt of hot and cold zones? This could indicate blocked airflow, malfunctioning vents, or a struggling furnace.
  • Unusual Noises: Rattling, banging, or screeching sounds emanating from your furnace are not good omens. They often point to worn-out parts or malfunctioning components.
  • Increased Running Time: Notice your furnace running incessantly, but without effectively warming your home? This could signify declining efficiency or an underlying issue requiring attention.
  • Yellow Pilot Light: A flickering or yellow pilot light indicates incomplete combustion, requiring immediate professional evaluation due to potential carbon monoxide risks.
  • Sudden Temperature Drops: Does your thermostat faithfully reach the desired temperature only to plummet again shortly after? This could point to issues with the thermostat itself or with the furnace’s ability to maintain consistent heat.

Now, take a deep breath. Try these at-home steps to potentially alleviate the situation:

  • Check and replace air filters: Clogged filters restrict airflow, reducing efficiency and straining the system. Change them regularly, especially during peak heating months.
  • Bleed radiators (if applicable): Trapped air bubbles can impede proper heat circulation. Bleed your radiators to ensure smooth water flow and optimal heat distribution.
  • Adjust thermostat settings: Sometimes, a simple adjustment to the thermostat can make a world of difference. Try lowering the temperature slightly and wait for the system to catch up.
  • Seal air leaks: Check for and seal drafts around windows, doors, and ductwork. This prevents heat loss and improves overall system efficiency.

However, if these measures don’t bring relief, don’t hesitate- call in the professionals at ROX Heating & Air.
