How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Florissant you count on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a routine 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 runs furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to search for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a professional, like B & B Heating & Cooling, if you notice any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem weak? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest a minor 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 cool? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running 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 interfere with this one. 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 technician or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a clogged condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a number of issues. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these indicators, you’ll know when you need to setup furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call B & B Heating & Cooling at 314-325-7552 when you need to arrange repairs or routine maintenance.
