How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Shreveport you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace fix-up visit any day. At the very least, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some signs for you to look for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like Moon's Air, if you see 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 liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a slight problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? 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 at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a obstructed condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a number of issues. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Moon's Air at 318-215-7938 when you need to schedule repairs or routine maintenance.
