How to Know When It’s Time for a Furnace Repair

In Napoleon and Northwest Ohio you count on your furnace to keep you warm 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 repair visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you might have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even cause trouble with your furnace’s limit switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Von Deylen Plumbing & Heating Inc., if you see any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications related to your blower could suggest a slight problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, along with 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 an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a blocked condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC pros to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a number of problems. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
