How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Carson City you count on your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair visit 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, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are quite a few reasons you may need a furnace repair. The sooner you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Anderson Heating & A/C.

1. Your furnace is noisy. 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 properly. Is it running enough? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem faint? You may have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you increased the temperature again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could signal 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 big enough for your house.
4. Your electric bill keeps climbing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps increasing. This could indicate a few different problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, stop your furnace immediately and close 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 gathering around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
