How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

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

There are quite a few reasons you could require a furnace repair. The more promptly you can call 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 without stopping? Does the air flow seem faint? You may have an issue with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you raised the temperature again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? 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 isn’t changing but your bill keeps climbing. This could indicate a few different problems. Your HVAC professional will help figure out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is important. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and close off its gas supply. Don’t light any matches or turn on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect it.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC technicians to fix.
