How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in Tucker you count on your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might 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. A dirty air filter can impede air flow, decrease your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you could 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 less powerful? You may have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could indicate a few specific 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 correctly sized for your home.
4. Your electric bill keeps climbing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps growing. This could indicate a few different problems. Your HVAC expert 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. 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 collecting around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC technicians to remedy.
