How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Marshfield you depend on your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system seems to be running well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. A dirty air filter can block air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you might have to have a furnace repair. The more promptly you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like House of Heating Incorporated.

1. Your furnace is noisy. You may have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem faint? You might 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 suggest a few particular problems. It could be something wrong 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 correctly sized for your space.
4. Your utility bill keeps growing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps growing. This could signal some different problems. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately 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 system.
