How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Midlothian you count on your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system seems to be working well, you probably 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 plenty of reasons you could have to have a furnace repair. The more promptly you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following signs, call in an expert, like Daniel's Heating & Refrigeration Corp..

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You might have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running enough? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem faint? You may have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you increased the temperature again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could indicate a few specific problems. It could be a problem 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 home.
4. Your monthly bill keeps growing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps climbing. This could point to some different problems. Your HVAC technician will help figure out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, stop your furnace immediately and shut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC technicians to fix.
