How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Saint Charles you need your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair appointment in your future. Even if your system appears to be operating well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can block air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you might require a furnace repair. The sooner you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Air Alliance Team.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You might have a problem if your furnace has begun 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 less powerful? You might have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could indicate a few different 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 big enough for your house.
4. Your utility bill keeps increasing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps increasing. This could signal some different problems. Your HVAC technician will help sort out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, stop your furnace immediately and shut off its gas supply. Keep lights off and don’t use matches until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your furnace.
6. You find water gathering around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC technicians to repair.
