Furnace Not Working?
Due to the harsh winters us Calgarians face every year, furnace issues tend to arise during the beginning of the cold season. This year is no exception. In fact, some experts are saying we are in for a “colder than usual” winter.
Nothing is worse than being in a cold home with a broken furnace waiting days for repair services or even worse; paying devastating emergency call-out fees for a furnace repair that could have been easily caught and repaired through a simple inspection.

If you’re concerned about the condition of your furnace, its best to have it inspected today before an emergency call-out is necessary. Contact us today to book your furnace inspection. Stay warm this winter and keep your furnace working efficiently!

Warning Signs of a Failing Furnace
Age of the Furnace
A furnace will typically last between 10 and 20 years. In Calgary, we tend to be more on the low side of that number. On your furnace reaches the age of 10 years, it is critical to pay close attention to abnormal functions and ensure the unit is operating in good order.
Your furnace should have a tag that shows the installation date. We recommend checking your furnace tag every season and keeping up on maintenance.
Cold Air Coming from the Furnace
At the start of winter months, we see many furnace blower fan malfunctions. Due to a lack of power from wear and tear, the fan tends to not blow enough warm air throughout the home.
If your furnace isn’t blowing warm air, there may be an issue with the pilot light or the heat exchanger. This is something qualified plumbing and heating professional will need to take a look at to see if there is a need for repair.
Strange Noises from the Furnace
Hearing pops and squeaks coming from a furnace unit is a telltale sign that something may be wrong and the unit might need repair. A certified technician and inspect the furnace and diagnose the issue. Something may have come loose and could cause further damage, have this issue inspected immediately by a trusted local plumber like us.
Increased Heating Bill
One common issue we hear from Calgary homeowners is an increase in their heating bill but have not changed their routine in heating the house. This is a sign that the furnace may be close to failing and a new furnace may need to be installed.
If the furnace isn’t efficient enough to heat your Calgary home as quickly as it did when it was new, it may run longer, use more energy, and cost you significantly more money.
Yellow Pilot Light on Furnace
On a natural gas furnace, the pilot light should always be blue. If the light is yellow you may be in danger. A yellow pilot light means that the furnace could be leaking carbon monoxide.
Some other signs may include bad smells, condensation, rust, or a terrible smell of rotten eggs. Call an HVAC specialist immediately if you experience any of these issues.
Excess Dust from Home Vents
Your furnace takes air from outside, filters it, and then circulates it through your home. Furnaces older than ten years may have a more difficult time filtering this air. Changing your furnace filter is something that should be done on a regular basis and is typically done every 3 months.
Keep in mind that the ductwork and blower fan are apart of this process and they too can fail due to the lack of filter changes and through simple wear and tear through the life of a furnace depending on usage.
If you notice an excess of dust, call a certified technician.
