How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Carson City you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair appointment in your future. Even if your system looks to be running well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can impede air flow, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you may require 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 loud. You could have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running for the right amount of time? 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 turned up the thermostat 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 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 isn’t changing but your bill keeps increasing. This could point to several different problems. Your HVAC professional will help sort out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, stop your furnace right away 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 usually a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
