Do you smell burning plastic when your heater is running? This can indicate that a foreign object is in the unit – such as one of your kids’ toys. The object will start to melt while the furnace runs, causing the odor. You should immediately shut off the system and try to remove the object. If you are unable to, you should call for professional services.
When it’s time to replace the aging wiring in your home, there are certain signs you should watch for. These can include bad connections, sparks or flames, overheated wires, and flickering or dimming lights.
Does your water heater seem to be running out of hot water sooner and sooner? This can be due to numerous reasons, including:
- Multiple appliances are using hot water at the same time.
- There is sediment building up in the unit.
- The dip tube is broken. This allows cold water to move to the bottom of the tank to be heated.
- Your water heater is nearing the end of its lifespan.
- Your unit’s thermostat is not working properly.
When you have a clogged drain, it’s essential to leave the work up to the experts. Plumbers can use tools like augers and snakes to remove blockages and can use advanced methods like hydro jetting to remove resistant clogs.
If your air conditioner is giving off odd odors like vinegar when it’s running, it can be due to many different reasons, including if the electric motor is emitting ozone. It could also be due to condensation on the coils, a malfunctioning filter, a clogged condensate pan, or mold.
Fortunately, it is very unlikely that your furnace will start on fire or explode. Newer gas furnaces have safety standards to prevent these issues from occurring. If there is a serious issue with your system, typically the unit will shut off before a dangerous event can occur.
In most cases, turning on certain appliances or your HVAC system might cause your lights to flicker. However, if you notice the lights flicker at other times, it can be due to a wiring issue or a problem with your power supply.
