How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair Posted February 16, 2018 When it’s frigid in Wharton you count on your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you might have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system appears to be running well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can stop air flow, decrease your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.There are different reasons you might need 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 Faust Air Conditioning and Heating.1. Your furnace is loud. 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 enough? Is it running constantly? Does the air flow seem faint? You might have something wrong with your air filter or furnace blower. 3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you increased the temperature again and again but aren’t feeling any difference? This could suggest a few specific 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 big enough for your home. 4. Your monthly bill keeps increasing. Your usage is stable but your bill keeps climbing. This could point to a few different problems. Your HVAC professional will help figure out what’s going amiss. 5. You smell gas. This is important.

Don’t light any matches or turn on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company has a chance to inspect your system. 6. You find water collecting around your furnace.
