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

In San Angelo you count on your furnace to keep you comfortable throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace fix-up visit in the near future. At the very least, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create problems with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some signs for you to scan for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a pro, like Air-Dynamics Inc, if you notice any of these indicators:

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