How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Moline you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy 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 in the near future. At the very least, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency. It could even produce problems with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some signs for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Freed Heating & Air Conditioning, if you note any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications related to your blower could suggest a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor 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 could 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 working noisily or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks 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 rising, but your usage is not, there could be a series of complications. Your HVAC technician 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 Freed Heating & Air Conditioning at 309-323-9584 when you need to schedule repairs or annual maintenance.
