How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Saint Peters you count on your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair appointment in your future. Even if your system looks to be running well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. A dirty air filter can block air flow, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are quite a few reasons you may require a furnace repair. The quicker you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like C-N-O Comfort Zone.

1. Your furnace is loud. You might have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You could have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you increased the temperature again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could signal a few specific problems. It could be an issue with your thermostat. It may be a problem with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t large enough for your house.
4. Your electric bill keeps growing. Your usage is steady but your bill keeps climbing. This could point to several different problems. Your HVAC professional will help sort out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, stop your furnace right away 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 it.
6. You find water gathering around your furnace. This is usually a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
