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

In Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area you depend on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace repair visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and impact your furnace’s performance. It could even cause trouble with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a professional, like Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling, if you see any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a minor problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and cut off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a clogged condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC pros to repair.
  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 technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
