How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Tucker you count on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can stop air flow, decrease your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you might 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 ACS Heating and Air Conditioning.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You may have a problem if your furnace has begun running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for enough time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem weak? You could have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could indicate a few different problems. It could be something wrong 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 correctly sized for your home.
4. Your utility bill keeps climbing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps increasing. This could point to several different problems. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately 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 collecting around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It may need both plumbing and HVAC technicians to fix.
