How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s frigid in East Bernard you count on your furnace to keep you cozy. If it’s been too long since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair appointment in your future. Even if your system seems to be operating well, you may need to clean or replace your air filter. A dirty air filter can impede air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are quite a few reasons you may have to have a furnace repair. The quicker you can reach out for a furnace repair, the better. If you notice any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service.

1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You may have a problem if your furnace is running loudly or making noises that are unfamiliar.
2. Your blower isn’t operating correctly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem faint? You might 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 aren’t feeling any difference? This could signal a few particular problems. It could be an issue with your thermostat. It may be something to do with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t large enough for your home.
4. Your utility bill keeps climbing. Your usage is steady but your bill keeps climbing. This could point to some different problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going amiss.
