How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Mechanicsville you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a regular 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 effect your furnace’s performance. It could even create problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some signs for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a pro, like M & S Heating & Air LLC, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  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 liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications related to your blower could suggest a minor problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you hiking up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a blocked condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC pros to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of complications. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
