How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair Posted February 16, 2018 When it’s cold in Ontario you depend on your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been a while since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair soon in your future. Even if your system seems to be running well, you probably need to clean or replace your air filter. An old air filter can stop air flow, impact your furnace’s efficiency and affect the limit switch that controls furnace operation.There are different reasons you might have to have a furnace repair. The more promptly you can schedule a furnace repair, the better. If you observe any of the following symptoms, call in an expert, like Stan's Heating, Inc .1. Your furnace is making a lot of noise. You could have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you haven’t heard before. 2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for enough time? Is it running without stopping? Does the air flow seem less powerful? You might have something wrong 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 particular 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 large enough for your house. 4. Your electric bill keeps growing. Your usage is steady but your bill keeps increasing. This could signal some different problems. Your HVAC technician will help sort out what’s going awry. 5. You smell gas. This is serious. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once 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 furnace. 6. You find water pooling around your furnace. This is generally a clogged condensation line. It might demand both plumbing and HVAC experts to repair.
