Telltale Signs that Your Home HVAC System Requires Service
Waiting too long to make sure your home HVAC system is in good shape can cause big problems. It’s best to find out as early as possible if your furnace is in need of repairs because you don’t want your family to deal with a frigid house for too long. But how can you tell if your home HVAC equipment is in need of service?
Here are some signs that it’s time to call in a professional home HVAC repair service:
- Check for sounds and smells. Power on your home HVAC system. If it makes odd sounds or emits strange odors, you need to call in the professionals.
- Check the breaker. If the furnace won’t turn on, try flipping the appropriate breaker switch off and on. If resetting the breaker doesn’t help the furnace turn on, call an HVAC repair service.
- Check for warm air. If the furnace kicks on but does not generate warm air, there could be a variety of causes that are best evaluated by a qualified furnace repairman.
- Check for a flame. If your furnace’s pilot light will not ignite, you need to call in an expert. You don’t want to mess around with a propane or natural gas issue by yourself.
