1: Discomfort In Your Home

If the level of comfort in your home has changed and you find that some rooms are not warming up, perhaps your furnace should get checked out by a professional.

2. Air Quality

Are you noticing dry or musty air in your home?  This is a major sign of poor air quality and your furnace most likely needs repairing. When an HVAC system accumulates dust buildup or runs into blockages and cracks in the vents, it causes unpleasant odors.

3: Odd Noises From System 

Odd and unusual sounds coming from your HVAC system are early warning signs of future problems. Sounds to hear out for are dripping, hissing, grinding, or hums. If you hear any of these sounds, an expert should have a look.

4: High Utility Bills

Another sign that is cause for concern is rising energy bills that seem to have no reasoning. You may feel no difference in the comfort level of your home or air quality, but your furnace may be working harder. 

5: Yellow Pilot Light

Most HVAC systems have signal lights that turn on to warn you of any problems with the system. When the yellow pilot light turns on, this means you may need a furnace replacement or tuneup.
