How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Perry you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace service visit any day. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even produce issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some signs for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like Gillman Heating and Air, if you note any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem weak? Signs related to your blower could suggest a slight problem with your air filter or the internal 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 working loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace right away and shut down its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, 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 indicators, you’ll know when you need to setup furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Gillman Heating and Air at 478-202-3076 when you need to schedule repairs or routine maintenance.
