How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Waterloo you depend on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace repair visit in the near future. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and impact your furnace’s execution. It could even create problems with your furnace’s limit switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd, if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications related to your blower could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a blocked condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Cronin-Verheul Heating & A/C Ltd at 519-664-0600 when you need to schedule repairs or annual maintenance.
