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

In Abilene you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace fix-up visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even create issues with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to look for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Abilene Air-Tech Inc, if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely 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 ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It may 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 working noisily or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace immediately and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC pros to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
