How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

February 16, 2018

 

In Thedford you rely on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your furnace, you could be looking at a furnace service visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s execution. It could even create issues with your furnace’s control switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications related to your blower could indicate a minor problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a clogged condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of complications. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Taylor's Heating & Air Conditioning at 519-296-4437 when you need to schedule repairs or routine maintenance.
