How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in Edinburg you need your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system seems to be running well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can impede air flow, hurt your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are different reasons you could need a furnace repair. The more promptly you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Cytech Heating & Cooling.

1. Your furnace is loud. You could have a problem if your furnace has begun running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating properly. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem weak? You might have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you increased the temperature again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could suggest a few specific problems. It could be something wrong 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 large enough for your home.
4. Your monthly bill keeps growing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps climbing. This could indicate several different problems. Your HVAC technician will help sort out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and shut 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 it.
6. You find water gathering around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
