How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Kearney 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 needing a furnace repair visit any day. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and impact your furnace’s performance. It could even create problems with your furnace’s control switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some signs for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning, if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a slight 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 cool? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It might 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 loudly or making 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 at once and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a clogged condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
  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.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Thurston Heating & Air Conditioning at 308-624-3485 when you need to arrange repairs or routine maintenance.
