How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Ballwin you count on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system appears to be running well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can impede air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you could have to have a furnace repair. The more promptly you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Air Alliance Team.

1. Your furnace is noisy. You might have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You might have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you increased the temperature again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could suggest a few specific problems. It could be an issue with your thermostat. It may be something to do with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t big enough for your house.
4. Your monthly bill keeps climbing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps climbing. This could point to several different problems. Your HVAC professional will help figure out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and cut 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 it.
