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

In Shelby Township you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace fix-up visit any day. Simply put, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even produce problems with your furnace’s control switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a professional, like Mr. Air Repair , if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem feeble? Signs related to your blower could signify a minor problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working noisily or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and shut down its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a obstructed condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a number of complications. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
