How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Tuscaloosa you count on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace fix-up visit in the near future. At the very least, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s limit switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some indicators for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like KDM Service Corporation, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Signs 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 hiking 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, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these signs, you’ll know when you need to setup furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call KDM Service Corporation at 205-208-8090 when you need to setup repairs or annual maintenance.
