How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in Bossier City you count on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system seems to be running well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can impede air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you could need a furnace repair. The more promptly you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Brooks Heating and Air Conditioning.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You could have a problem if your furnace has begun 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 endlessly? Does the air flow seem weak? You might have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could indicate a few different problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be a problem with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t large enough for your home.
4. Your monthly bill keeps increasing. Your usage is steady but your bill keeps growing. This could indicate some different problems. Your HVAC professional will help sort out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace immediately and cut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is usually a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
