How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in Wyandotte you need your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair appointment in your future. Even if your system appears to be working well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can impede air flow, decrease your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you may require a furnace repair. The more promptly you can call for a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Gee & Missler Heating & Air Conditioning.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You may have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You might 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 indicate a few particular problems. It could be an issue with your thermostat. It may be something to do with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t big enough for your home.
4. Your utility bill keeps increasing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps climbing. This could point to some different problems. Your HVAC professional will help sort out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and shut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning 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 may need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to remedy.
