How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Rock Hill you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system looks to be working well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. A dirty air filter can impede air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are quite a few reasons you could need a furnace repair. The quicker you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following signs, call in an expert, like US Air Heating and Cooling.

1. Your furnace is noisy. You may have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem weak? You could have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could suggest a few particular 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 home.
4. Your utility bill keeps increasing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps growing. This could point to a few different problems. Your HVAC technician will help figure out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and shut 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 your system.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It may need both plumbing and HVAC technicians to remedy.
