How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

February 16, 2018

When it’s frigid in Huntingburg you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system looks to be working well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can stop air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are quite a few reasons you may need a furnace repair. The sooner you can call for a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following signs, call in an expert, like Dearing's Service & Solutions.

1. Your furnace is noisy. You might have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem faint? You could have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you increased the temperature again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could suggest a few particular problems. It could be something wrong with your thermostat. It may be a problem with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t correctly sized for your home.
4. Your utility bill keeps growing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps climbing. This could indicate some different problems. Your HVAC expert will help figure out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Don’t light any matches or turn on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is usually a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
