Customer Question

Its 25 degrees where i live and i have three people over the age of 80. This morning i smell something that i thought it was burning but i checked everywhere and nothing. At 10 pm my daughter and i heard this screeching noise as the furnace was stopping and now at 3 am the smell came back. Should i turnoff the furnace?

Hi i am dan. I can help you with this. If you really need heat now you can leave the furnace on for now if it is still working. But the problem definitely should be investigated. It sounds like a problem with the blower motor to me. Do you have a model number and what type of furnace you have?

Are you still there?
Expert:  Daniel Plourde replied 9 months ago.

The model number will be on the inside of the furnace. Is it a gas furnace?

Are you able to open the furnace to get the model number and check the blower?

Its making noise like wants to start but nothing happens
Expert:  Daniel Plourde replied 9 months ago.

Ok in order to determine what the problem is it will require disconnecting and checking a few components. Is this something you think you will be able to do?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Hi Dan ... I was able to find a plumber that will review the furnace this morning. I appreciate your help but I can't do it myself.
