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

In Robstown you count on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace repair visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even cause problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some signs for you to look for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like McNatt Inc, if you see any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Signs related to your blower could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working at top volume or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a blocked condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of issues. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
