How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Williamsport you need your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system looks to be working well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can block air flow, decrease your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you could need a furnace repair. The quicker you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Lycoming Heating Company.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You might have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating properly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem weak? You may have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could indicate a few particular problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be something to do with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t correctly sized for your home.
4. Your utility bill keeps increasing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps climbing. This could signal a few different problems. Your HVAC professional will help sort out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Keep lights off and don’t use matches until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your system.
6. You find water gathering around your furnace. This is usually a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to repair.
