How to Know When It’s Time for a Furnace Repair

In Fort Worth you count on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace service visit sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency. It could even produce problems with your furnace’s control switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Breeze Air and Heat, if you note any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications related to your blower could suggest a bit of a 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 cold? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running at top volume or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a clogged condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a number of problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
