How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Winnipeg you count on your furnace to keep you comfortable. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system seems to be operating well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. A dustry air filter can impede air flow, decrease your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.

There are quite a few reasons you might require a furnace repair. The quicker you can call for a furnace repair, the better. If you see any of the following evidence, call in an expert, like Kirkfield Heating & Air Conditioning.

1. Your furnace is loud. You may have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before.
2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for the right amount of time? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You might have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could indicate a few particular 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 correctly sized for your house.
4. Your utility bill keeps climbing. Your usage isn’t changing but your bill keeps increasing. This could point to some different problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Keep lights off and don’t use matches until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your furnace.
6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is usually a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC technicians to fix.
