How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in Kingsville 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 appointment in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. A dirty air filter can stop air flow, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of 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 loud. 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 don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could signal a few particular problems. It could be a problem 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 utility bill keeps increasing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps increasing. This could point to some different problems. Your HVAC technician will help sort out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away 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 it.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is usually a clogged condensation line. It may need both plumbing and HVAC technicians to remedy.
