How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Carlsbad you need your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair appointment in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can stop air flow, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you may have to have a furnace repair. The quicker you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You could have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You may have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could signal a few particular problems. It could be an issue with your thermostat. It may be something to do with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t large enough for your space.
4. Your electric bill keeps growing. Your usage is steady but your bill keeps growing. This could signal some different problems. Your HVAC technician will help figure out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace immediately and cut off its gas supply. Don’t light any matches or turn on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your system.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is usually a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC experts to repair.
