How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Dresden you count on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can block air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you might need a furnace repair. The sooner you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following signs, call in an expert, like McFadden Heating & Cooling.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You could have a problem if your furnace has begun running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running enough? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You could have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you increased the temperature again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could suggest a few specific problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be an issue with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t big enough for your space.
4. Your electric bill keeps increasing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps growing. This could indicate a few different problems. Your HVAC expert will help figure out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away and shut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your furnace.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
