Signs that your Propane Furnace Requires Repair
Heating bills – While the cost of heating does typically rise each year, if you notice a dramatic increase in the cost to heat your home it could mean that your furnace is not running at its top efficiency.
Varying room temperatures – If you find some rooms are too hot and some too cold, it could mean that your furnace is not distributing the heated air evenly.
Furnace flame color – Propane burner flames should be blue. If the flames are orange or yellow, an adjustment is needed.
Air filters – The airways to and through the furnace should be clean. If the filters become dirty or clogged, airflow will be restricted.
‘Rotten egg’ smell – The manufacturers purposefully added the release of such a smell to alert homeowners of a propane gas leak. If you notice the smell, call a furnace serviceman immediately and leave the property.
Strange noises – Banging, popping, rattling or squealing noises can be a sign that the furnace blower is not functioning properly.
