How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Saint Marys you rely 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 fix-up visit in the near future. As a minimum, you could have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and impact your furnace’s execution. It could even cause trouble with your furnace’s control switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning, if you notice any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a blocked condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of issues. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning at 912-208-2470 when you need to setup repairs or annual maintenance.
