How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in Lodi you depend on your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system looks to be operating well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can block air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are plenty of reasons you might need a furnace repair. The more promptly you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Tokay Heating and Air Conditioning.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You could have a problem if your furnace has begun running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for enough time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem faint? You could have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could signal a few specific problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be an issue with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t correctly sized 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 professional will help figure out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and close off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It may need both plumbing and HVAC technicians to remedy.
