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

In Englewood you count on your furnace to keep you comfortable throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace repair visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s limit switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some signs for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like TemperaturePro®, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Signs related to your blower could suggest 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 chilly? This could be a problem 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, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and cut off its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a clogged condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a series of issues. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
