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, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you might require a furnace repair. The quicker 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 weak? You may have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could suggest a few different problems. It could be an issue with your thermostat. It may be an issue with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t large enough for your space.
4. Your utility bill keeps increasing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps increasing. This could point to a few different problems. Your HVAC technician will help figure out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Don’t light any matches or turn on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC technicians to fix.
