How to Know When It’s Time for a Furnace Repair

In McMurray you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace fix-up visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even cause trouble with your furnace’s control switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a pro, like Kowalski Heating & Cooling, if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Indications related to your blower could signify a slight problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, among 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 a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a clogged condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a series 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 arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Kowalski Heating & Cooling at 724-745-7404 when you need to schedule repairs or regular maintenance.
