How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

In Alice you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace fix-up visit any day. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create problems with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some indicators for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like Rescue Heating & Air , if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Signs related to your blower could suggest a bit of a problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you hiking 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 issue with your gas source or your pilot light, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, 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 signs, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Rescue Heating & Air at 361-265-4371 when you need to schedule repairs or annual maintenance.
