How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in New Castle you need your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair appointment in your future. Even if your system looks to be running well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can impede air flow, decrease 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 sooner you can call for a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Central Heating & Plumbing.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You may have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating properly. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You could have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you increased the temperature again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could indicate 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 large enough for your home.
4. Your monthly bill keeps climbing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps growing. This could point to several different problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, turn off 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 your system.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is the result of a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC technicians to repair.
