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

In Muskogee you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace service visit sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you could have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even produce trouble with your furnace’s threshold switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some signs for you to search for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Hix Air Conditioning Service, Inc., if you note any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem weak? Signs related to your blower could suggest a minor problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you hiking up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running noisily or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and cut off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a obstructed condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
