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

In Northwest Arkansas 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 regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace service visit in the near future. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and influence your furnace’s execution. It could even produce trouble with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like AirTech Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC, if you note any of these symptoms:

  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 weak? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too little 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 loudly or making 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, turn off your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require 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 series of complications. Your HVAC expert 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 AirTech Heating and Air Conditioning, LLC at 479-226-8196 when you need to schedule repairs or routine maintenance.
