How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Mount Pleasant you depend on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace fix-up visit in the near future. As a minimum, you could have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even produce issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some indicators for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like Olde Towne Heating & Air, if you note any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Indications related to your blower could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor 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 issue with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working noisily or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a clogged condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Olde Towne Heating & Air at 843-485-0967 when you need to arrange repairs or routine maintenance.
