How Do I Know If I Need Furnace Repairs?

Autumn is here, which means the cold winter months are just around the corner. Homeowners certainly rely upon their furnaces to keep their home and families warm throughout the cooler fall months and the cold winter temperatures. If it has been quite some time since you have had any routine maintenance performed on your heating system, then the team here at PJ’s HVAC Repair, LLC has some important advice for you. Without scheduled routine maintenance, chances are you are soon to find yourself in need of furnace repairs, and many times, without preventative maintenance, can end up being quite costly.

Routine maintenance on your heating system can definitely contribute to its high-performance level and its overall lifespan. Even if you are not disciplined with professional preventative maintenance, we want you to be aware of the routine maintenance you, as a homeowner, can perform on your own. At the very least, you want to be sure to change your air filters every 2-3 months. A dirty air filter can obstruct air flow to your living space and have a negative impact on your furnace’s performance and efficiency. It could also produce a variety of other issues, including problems with the limit switch of your furnace that controls your system’s overall operation. So take time to change your air filters routinely.

The highly skilled and trained technicians here at PJs HVAC Repair, LLC want to help all our valued clients avoid unnecessary furnace repairs. With this in mind, we have put together a quick checklist of warning signs you should pay strict attention to.

  • If it seems your blower is not functioning properly, perhaps it is running all the time, or seems to have blocked air flow, these are indicators that you have either a problem with your indoor blower or perhaps your air filter.
  • If your furnace is making a loud noise and continues to produce varied noises that you are not accustomed to hearing, you may very well have a problem.
  • If you notice that your home is not getting quite warm enough in the cold temperatures and you have to keep putting your thermostat up, you may have a problem with the thermostat itself. It could also be an indicator that your furnace is not properly fitted to the size of your home or even be an indication of a problem with your pilot light.
  • If you see pools of water forming around your furnace this is typically an indication that you have an obstruction to a condensation line. This furnace repair can result in both HVAC and plumbing services.
  • If you smell gas, don’t play around with this warning sign. Instead, turn your furnace and its gas supply off immediately, then contact your HVAC professionals or even your gas company right away to come out and inspect the system.
  • Finally, if you notice that your utility bills just keep on going up and up, but your usage has remained the same, you absolutely have a problem. This is where our professionals come in. Our team will come out and perform an inspection, identify problems and provide effective, affordable solutions as needed.
