How Tell if Your Huffman Furnace is in Need of Emergency Repair

October 13, 2017

During the cooler Huffman months, your furnace is your best friend—except for when your furnace breaks down and evolves into your worst enemy. Hopefully, this won’t happen to you, keeping you and your furnace on friendly terms. But, if it does, a simple call to Air Houston Mechanical LLC will help bring warm and comfort back into your house in no time. We’ve got some signs you should look for to help you decide if you’re in need a furnace repair—hopefully before it results in an emergency repair. Call Air Houston Mechanical LLC right away if you notice any of these issues:

  1. You smell gas. Shut down your furnace right away and shut off its gas supply if you smell gas. Don’t light a match or anything else that creates a flame and don’t turn on your lights until your furnace can be inspected by a qualified technician or your gas company.
  2. Your home is too chilly. If you’re repeatedly turning up the thermostat, yet you aren’t getting warmer, a furnace repair may be in order. While this could be a indication of a problem with your thermostat, it could also mean your furnace is not big enough for your house.
  3. Your furnace is noisy. If you observe a change in the sounds coming from your furnace and it’s not the typical noise, it’s probably wise to schedule a repair.
  4. Your utility bill is climbing without increased usage. If you’re running your furnace as you usually do but notice an increase in your energy bill, there are several different problems you could be experiencing. Your professional from Air Houston Mechanical LLC can determine what the problem is.
  5. Your blower isn’t working correctly. If your blower isn’t running enough or, on the other hand, is running consistently, you could have a problem. It may be a something as minor as an air filter problem or something as big as a motor problem. We’ll help you sort it out.
