Signs You Need Furnace Repair
Most of the time, you’ll have a good idea when it’s time to call for furnace repairs in Houston. However, it’s always good to look out for any of the following signs. They could lead to more serious heating repairs in the future:
- Poor airflow
- Hot or cold spots around your house
- Your heating system is 10 to 15 years old
- System short-cycling
- Increased energy bills
- A leaky heating system

The best way to avoid these heating system issues is with routine heating maintenance. Furnace and heat pump maintenance ensures your system will work properly for longer and guarantees that a technician will identify a furnace problem before it becomes a costly heating repair.

Frequently Asked Questions
Some of the questions we receive about heating repair include:
How do I know when a repair is an emergency?
If your AC breaks and it’s more than 90 degrees outside, that’s an emergency. If your boiler, furnace, or heating system breaks and it’s 40 degrees or below, that’s an emergency too.
Signs to look for include:
- Air blows cool when you need warm air.
- HVAC system won’t turn on.
- If your heating unit turns on and off, this is called short-cycling, and it’s an emergency in minus 40-degree weather.
- Noises (clicking, clunking) can indicate an emergency.
- Odd smell — if it’s the odor of burning plastic/electronics, don’t delay. If you smell gas, call your utility company, then call us ASAP.
- Puddles or drips under your heating unit can be a frozen coil or refrigerant leak.
- You suspect you have a furnace carbon monoxide leak:
- Brown/yellow stains around the pilot light area of the unit.
- Pilot light keeps blowing out.
- You notice a gas-like exhaust smell.
Why is there a weird smell coming from my heat vents?
If you didn’t schedule fall heating maintenance, it’s not uncommon to smell burning dust the first time you turn on your heating unit. Odors you should be concerned about are:
- Burning plastic/electrical: Turn off your heating system immediately and call Horizon Air for emergency heating repair.
- Chemical/formaldehyde: A crack in the heat exchanger can cause this odor; it’s an emergency.
- Lingering odors: We have several solutions for “bad air.” The overwhelming smell of cooking grease, cigarette smoke, or pet urine isn’t an emergency, but it isn’t healthy, either. Schedule an indoor air quality assessment.
- Metallic: A heating unit component may be overheating. Turn the unit off and call us.
- Mold/mildew or “dirty socks”: This is not an emergency, but it’s a health risk. Schedule an HVAC inspection.
- Rotten eggs: This may indicate a gas leak. Turn off your heating unit, open windows, and call your utility company. Then call Horizon Air.
- Sewage: This is dangerous. It means a sewage line is leaking into some area of your heating system. Call us, but we may advise you to call a plumber before scheduling an emergency repair.
- Smoke: Turn off your heating system and call us ASAP.
How do I know when it's time to replace my furnace?
Without maintenance, your HVAC system will last about 10 years. If you’ve recently had two or more repairs to your furnace, boiler, or heat pump, it’s time to replace your heating system. A heating unit is a big financial investment. Fall furnace maintenance saves money by keeping your system running more efficiently for longer.
The winter storm of 2021 is proof that we should keep our heating systems in good condition!
