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

In Huntsville you rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a routine 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 obstruct air flow and impact your furnace’s performance. It could even cause problems 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 collected some signs for you to search for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like All Weather Heating & Air Conditioning Inc, if you notice any of these signs:

  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 easily as it should, or does it seem tired? Indications related to your blower could indicate a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running noisily or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a blocked condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC pros to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a series of complications. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
