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

In Lake Charles you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a regular 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 block air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s threshold switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like ACR Air Conditioning & Heating Inc, if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate 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 cool? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working noisily or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks it.
