How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in Middle Georgia you count on your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair appointment 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 different reasons you may have to have a furnace repair. The more promptly you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Air Concepts of Middle Georgia.

1. Your furnace is loud. You might have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You may have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could suggest a few different 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 correctly sized for your space.
4. Your electric bill keeps increasing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps increasing. This could indicate some different problems. Your HVAC expert will help figure out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and close 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 generally a clogged condensation line. It may need both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
