How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in South Beloit and Belvidere you count on your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system looks to be working well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can impede air flow, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you may need a furnace repair. The quicker you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc..

1. Your furnace is loud. You might have a problem if your furnace has begun running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating properly. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You might have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could suggest 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 correctly sized for your space.
4. Your electric bill keeps increasing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps increasing. This could point to a few different problems. Your HVAC technician will help sort out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and cut 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 it.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to remedy.
