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

In Dresden you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace fix-up visit any day. Simply put, you might have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like McFadden Heating & Cooling, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor 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 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 operating at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately and cut off its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a blocked condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a series of problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
