How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

In Pocatello you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace service visit sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you could have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and effect your furnace’s performance. It could even produce issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a professional, like Vogts Heating & Air, if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a slight problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating noisily or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and cut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a blocked condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of complications. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these signs, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Vogts Heating & Air at 208-621-0129 when you need to setup repairs or annual maintenance.
