How to Know When It’s Time for a Furnace Repair

In Tomball you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace repair visit any day. At the very least, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even create problems with your furnace’s control switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some indicators for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Premium Air Services LLC, if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a minor problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning 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 obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC pros to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of issues. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these signs, you’ll know when you need to arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Premium Air Services LLC at 713-688-8784 when you need to arrange repairs or annual maintenance.
