Why You May Need Furnace Repair in Your Dalton or Massillon Home

Occasionally, a furnace will break down without warning, but most times, your heating system sends you signals that something’s wrong. If you notice any of the following problems, call the experts at Shanklin right away.

Our expert technicians are trained to diagnose and fix minor problems before they lead to full system breakdowns.

  • Unusual odors like gas or mildew
  • Loud banging, clanging, or screeching sounds
  • Higher-than-normal utility bills
  • Uneven heating throughout your home
  • Spikes in humidity
  • Reduced airflow from vents
  • Water puddles under the unit

Your furnace could be experiencing problems for various reasons, but many times, they’re caused by these issues:

  • Lack of preventive maintenance
  • Failure to change air filters
  • System age
  • Blockages in ductwork
  • Component wear and tear

If the furnace in your Dalton or Massillon home has any of these problems, call the Shanklin team for immediate repairs.

Why You Should Never Ignore a Natural Gas Odor From Your Furnace

Natural gas is an affordable and energy-efficient fuel used to heat homes. Since natural gas is odorless, utility companies add a sulfur or “rotten egg” substance to the gas supply so people can quickly detect a leak and turn off their furnace to avoid a catastrophic explosion.

Gas leaks are most likely to occur in older furnaces that develop cracks, which allow gas to escape into the home.

If you smell gas coming from your furnace, turn it off and evacuate your home immediately.

Then, call the experts at Shanklin to repair the problem and get your furnace running safely and efficiently again.

Some of the frequently asked questions we receive about furnace repair in Dalton and Massillon, OH, are:

Can I install my own furnace?

No. Working with natural gas and electricity is dangerous. You can void your warranty or risk injury, and you need special tools. It’s just not worth it. Smart Dalton and Massillon homeowners know you need licensed, professional furnace installation.

How do I know if I have a furnace emergency?

If your furnace breaks down and it’s below freezing outside, that’s an emergency. Other emergencies can include:

  • Air blows cool when it should be warm.
  • Furnace or HVAC unit won’t turn on.
  • Erratic on-and-off is “short-cycling,” and it’s an emergency in dangerous weather.
  • Noises (banging, buzzing, clicking) are an emergency.
  • Odor: If you smell burning electronics, heating plastic, or gas, it’s serious. Shut down your furnace and call your utility company, then contact Shanklin.
  • Puddles/leaks or drips can be a frozen coil or a refrigerant leak.

Signs of a furnace carbon monoxide leak are:

  • Brown/yellow stains around the pilot light opening
  • Pilot light won’t stay lit
  • Exhaust gas-like smell

Immediately turn off your heating and cooling system and request emergency service.

How long should a heating system last?

With maintenance, your HVAC system can last 15 or even 20 years. Without it, you’re looking at approximately 10 years or less. The best way to prolong your HVAC’s life span is by changing the filters, keeping the unit and its area clean, and keeping up with annual maintenance.

Is it always worth it to make a heating repair?

Not always. Frequent repairs may mean it’s time to cut your losses and invest in an Ohio furnace replacement.

Because a heating/cooling system is your biggest (and most expensive) appliance, you should protect your investment with annual furnace maintenance. Prolonging the unit’s life span saves money, so maintenance makes sense.

Asking questions is how you make knowledgeable decisions about your heating and cooling system. Questions (and estimates) are free.
