How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Dayton you count on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace service visit in the near future. As a minimum, you could have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s limit switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Jent Mechanical LLC, 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 easily as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications related to your blower could signify a minor problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. 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 could be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running 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, turn off your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of problems. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these indicators, you’ll know when you need to setup furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Jent Mechanical LLC at 937-845-1111 when you need to setup repairs or regular maintenance.
