How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Lawrence you count on 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 seems to be operating well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can block air flow, decrease your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are quite a few reasons you might need a furnace repair. The quicker you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Scott Temperature.

1. Your furnace is loud. You might have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for enough time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You could have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you increased the temperature again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could indicate a few particular problems. It could be something wrong with your thermostat. It may be an issue with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t correctly sized for your space.
4. Your utility bill keeps climbing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps growing. This could indicate a few different problems. Your HVAC expert will help figure out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace immediately and shut off its gas supply. Don’t light any matches or turn on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to remedy.
