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 could have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system seems to be operating well, you likely 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 could need a furnace repair. The sooner you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following signs, call in an expert, like Scott Temperature.

1. Your furnace is loud. You may have a problem if your furnace starts 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 constantly? Does the air flow seem weak? You may have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could signal 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 increasing. This could point to 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 cut 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 your furnace.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is usually a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
