How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Oxford you need your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system seems to be operating 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 quite a few reasons you may need a furnace repair. The more promptly you can call for a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc..

1. Your furnace is noisy. You may have a problem if your furnace has begun running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem weak? You might have a problem 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 aren’t feeling any difference? This could suggest a few different 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 house.
4. Your electric bill keeps climbing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps growing. This could point to several different problems. Your HVAC technician will help figure out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your furnace.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
