How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s cold in St. Louis you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable. 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 seems to be working well, you likely need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can block 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 schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Morgner Inc. Air Conditioning & Heating.

1. Your furnace is noisy. 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 properly. Is it running for enough time? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You may have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower.
3. Your home isn’t heating up enough. Have you increased the temperature again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could signal a few different problems. It could be an issue 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 home.
4. Your electric bill keeps climbing. Your usage is steady but your bill keeps growing. This could point to some different problems. Your HVAC expert will help sort out what’s going awry.
5. You smell gas. This is critical. If you smell gas, stop your furnace right away and shut 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 system.
6. You find water collecting around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
