How to Know When It’s Time for a Furnace Repair

In Groves you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace repair visit in the near future. Simply put, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and impact your furnace’s execution. It could even cause issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Air Solutions, Inc, if you see any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a blocked condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC pros to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of issues. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
