How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in Liberty you need your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system looks to be working well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. A dirty 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 might need a furnace repair. The sooner you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling.

1. Your furnace is loud. You could have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running enough? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem faint? You might have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you raised the temperature again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could suggest a few particular 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 home.
4. Your electric bill keeps climbing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps increasing. This could point to a few different problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, stop your furnace at once and cut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights 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 may need both plumbing and HVAC experts to repair.
