Don't Be Haunted By These HVAC Horrors

Is there a noisy or foul smelling ghoul lurking in your basement that's raising your energy bills? If so, your furnace may need your attention! Otherwise, you may have to deal with one or more of the following HVAC horrors:

Eerie Noises

That bump in the middle of the night? That may be your furnace. They can be prone to unnatural noises such as popping, clicking, hissing, squealing, screeching, buzzing, and rumbling. You may be able to dispel some of these noises on your own. But, to be on the safe side, call your local HVAC company.

Scary Smells

Is your furnace emitting foul odors? The most common scent is sulfur, which signals the dangerous presence of natural gas. So if you smell rotten eggs, evacuate immediately! Call your utility company so they can inspect your gas lines.

The smell of burning metal, plastic, rubber or wax means you should turn off your furnace and call your local HVAC experts for a repair or replacement.

A not so spooky smell is burning dust which collects within the system during the off season. However, if the smell lingers after turning on, switch out the filter.


Even with the best intentions, DIY furnace repair often results in a tragic ending, damaging your system and voiding the warranty. It's best to leave furnace repair to the experts.

Nightmarish Installations

A furnace installed by the wrong company can lead to frightening issues such as a wrongly sized unit, inefficient heating, costly repairs, and loud noises. The right HVAC company can help you ward off future HVAC horrors.

Deathly Energy Bills

Is there anything more terrifying that receiving a high energy bill?

It's not magic, a right-sized, fuel-efficient furnace can breathe new heat into your house at a lower cost.
