How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Macon you need your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system seems to be operating well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. A dirty air filter can block air flow, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you might need a furnace repair. The more promptly you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Air Temperature Control.

1. Your furnace is loud. You might have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
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 faint? You might have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could suggest a few specific problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be a problem with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t big enough for your house.
4. Your utility bill keeps growing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps increasing. This could point to several different problems. Your HVAC expert will help sort out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away and close off its gas supply. Keep lights off and don’t use matches until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
