How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Greensburg you need your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been too long 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 likely need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can block air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you may require a furnace repair. The sooner you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Wallpe Heating & Cooling.

1. Your furnace is loud. You might have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem faint? You may have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could signal a few specific problems. It could be an issue with your thermostat. It may be an issue with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t correctly sized for your space.
4. Your monthly bill keeps growing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps climbing. This could indicate several different problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away and shut 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.
