How Tell if Your Tuscaloosa Furnace is in Need of Emergency Repair

October 13, 2017

During the cooler Tuscaloosa months, your furnace is your best friend—except for when your system breaks down and becomes your worst enemy. Hopefully, this won’t happen to you, keeping you and your furnace on friendly terms. But, if it occurs, a simple call to KDM Service Corporation will have you back to a warm and cozy home in no time. We’ve got some signs you should monitor for to help you determine if you’re in need a furnace repair—hopefully before you are faced with an emergency repair job. Call KDM Service Corporation as soon as possible if you observe any of these problems:

  1. You smell gas. Shut down your furnace instantly and shut off its gas supply if you smell gas. Don’t light a match or anything else that makes a flame and keep your lights off until your furnace can be evaluated by a qualified technician or your gas company.
  2. Your home is too chilly. If you’re repeatedly turning up the thermostat, yet you remain cold, a furnace repair might be necessary. While this could be a indication of a problem with your thermostat, it may also mean your furnace is not big enough for your house.
  3. Your furnace is noisy. If you notice a change in the sounds coming from your furnace and it’s become noisier than usual, it’s probably a good idea to arrange a repair.
  4. Your utility bill is climbing without increased usage. If you’re running your furnace as you usually do but see an increase in your utility bill, there are a few different problems you could be experiencing. Your expert from KDM Service Corporation can identify what the problem is.
  5. Your blower isn’t working correctly. If your blower isn’t running enough or, on the other hand, is running constantly, you could have a problem. It might be a something as small as an air filter problem or something as big as a motor problem. We’ll help you figure it out.
