How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

February 16, 2018

When it’s cold in Booneville you depend on your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can impede air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are quite a few reasons you might have to have a furnace repair. The quicker you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You could have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You could have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could signal a few particular problems. It could be something wrong with your thermostat. It may be an issue with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t correctly sized for your space.
4. Your electric bill keeps increasing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps increasing. This could indicate a few different problems. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace right away and shut off its gas supply. Keep lights off and don’t use matches until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC technicians to fix.
