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

In Marietta you count on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace fix-up visit any day. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create issues with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to look for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like Boyles Mechanical LLC, if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a bit of a 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 may be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running loudly or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a clogged condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of issues. Your HVAC professional 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 Boyles Mechanical LLC at 866-326-9537 when you need to setup repairs or annual maintenance.
