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

In Metro Atlanta you rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 needing a furnace service visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and influence your furnace’s execution. It could even produce issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to scan for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like ACS Inc, if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest 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 problem with your thermostat. It could 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 running at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a clogged condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC pros to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of complications. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call ACS Inc at 770-939-7500 or use our online scheduler when you need to schedule repairs or annual maintenance.
