How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Racine 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 looking at a furnace fix-up visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and influence your furnace’s execution. It could even cause problems with your furnace’s control switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some indicators for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc, if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications related to your blower could indicate a bit of a problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC pros to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of complications. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these signs, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Keystone Heating & Air Conditioning Co., Inc at 262-358-9468 when you need to schedule repairs or annual maintenance.
