How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Dallas you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace repair visit any day. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s efficiency. It could even cause problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Tri County Air Care LLC, if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Signs related to your blower could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a obstructed condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC pros to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of issues. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these indicators, you’ll know when you need to arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Tri County Air Care LLC at 469-213-8367 when you need to arrange repairs or routine maintenance.
