Basement Door Shakes When Heat Kicks On
The sound of the basement door shaking suddenly and often times with force may have you jumping out of your skin. It might sound like your house is haunted. However, the problem may very well be that there was a build up of natural gas in your furnace that was not reaching the pilot light in time. When the natural gas finally does hit the pilot light, there is a loud bang, there may be a small flame that shoots out, and the pressure in the air is altered, which causes the door to shake. It is important that you turn off your furnace until an HVAC technician can make it to your home to adjust the pilot light and do a thorough inspection of the heater.
The Temperature Keeps Dropping Even Though The Heat Is On
If you have a digital thermometer in the house, you are able to easily keep track of the current temperature of the home, as well as the temperature that you set it at. While it could take a away for the home to slowly reached the desired temperature, the home should not continue to get colder as the hours pass by. Therefore, if you are keeping an eye on the current temperature of the home and notice that it is decreasing, you need to call an HVAC technician. Even if the air is coming out of the vents, it might be be warmed up enough or it might not be coming out as strong as it should be. Then again, it might just be a problem with the thermostat itself.
With these tips in mind, you should have no problem figuring out if it is indeed time to call for a professional HVAC technician like Adams Plumbing & Heating to assist you. Remember, since they tend to get busy during the winter months, you want to call as soon as you notice a problem.Share
