How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Derby you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair appointment in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can impede air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you might need a furnace repair. The quicker you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Giordanos Heating and Air Conditioning.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. 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 how it should. Is it running enough? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You might have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you increased the temperature again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could suggest a few specific 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 large enough for your house.
4. Your utility bill keeps increasing. Your usage is steady but your bill keeps climbing. This could signal a few different problems. Your HVAC expert will help find 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. Keep lights off and don’t use matches until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC technicians to fix.
