How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Kingsville you count 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 may need to clean or replace your air filter. An old 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 may have to have a furnace repair. The sooner you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Four Seasons Air Conditioning and Heating LLC.

1. Your furnace is noisy. You could have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem faint? You might have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could indicate a few particular problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be something to do with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t correctly sized for your space.
4. Your utility bill keeps growing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps growing. This could point to some different problems. Your HVAC expert will help sort out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately and close 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 your furnace.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It may need both plumbing and HVAC technicians to fix.
