How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Omaha you depend on your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair visit in your future. Even if your system seems to be working well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can impede air flow, decrease 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 quicker you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like The Frazier Company.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You may have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing.
2. Your blower isn’t operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem weak? You could have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could indicate a few specific problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be a problem with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t big enough for your space.
4. Your monthly bill keeps climbing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps growing. This could point to some different problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going amiss.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and cut 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.
