In Hodgenville you depend on your furnace
to keep you comfortable throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your f
urnace, you could be looking at a furnace service
visit sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency. It could even cause problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which controls furnace operation.
There are a few other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to look for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a pro, like Phelps Heating & Cooling, if you note any of these indicators:
- Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily 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 interior blower.
- 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 problem with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
- Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating at top volume or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
- You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company inspects it.
- You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
- Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a number of problems. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
