How Do I Know if My Furnace Needs Repairing?
For starters, the best way to ever avoid any sort of sudden, costly repair is to have your furnace inspected once a year. You can have an HVAC specialist look over the furnace when they look over your AC and other equipment.
This way, you can save money having everything inspected at once and you can catch minor problems before it turns into major situations. In terms of knowing when your furnace needs repairing, you can look at your energy bill.
If your energy bill is suddenly much higher than usual and it has not been drastically colder than normal, there is a good chance there is a leak or problem with your current furnace. Beyond this, you might hear strange noises occur when the furnace is starting to turn on, such as creeks or groans. Any sort of strange noise is never a good idea and you need to have it checked out.

If you don't, you risk all sorts of dangerous situations, including a gas leak and electrical shock or fire. You also need to turn off the furnace in your switch
board. Disconnecting it from all power sources is the only way you can go about repairing the furnace.
