Does your energy bill seem to be increasing every month and you need some energy efficiency tips? Rising bills could be an indication that something is going terribly wrong with your furnace. Many different things can fail within a heater, and any of them can have a major impact on your utility bills.
Here are three signs your high energy bill could actually mean HVAC trouble:
1.The burner is exactly what it sounds like: it's the part of your furnace where gas ignites and creates heat. A cracked or corroded burner will prevent your furnace from producing heat reliably or efficiently. Because natural gas is toxic and dangerous, only an HVAC professional should service damaged burners.
2.The heat exchanger is a sealed component inside the furnace that transforms hot air and gas into a safe, warm air supply. When the heat exchanger works harder to move warm air into your home, you will see an obvious uptick in your utility bills.
3.The blower is also just what it sounds like: it's the device that forces warm air produced by the furnace throughout your home's air ducts. A damaged blower will reduce the performance and efficiency of your furnace.
