Sometimes when your furnace needs repair, it is clear that you need to call a trained and licensed air conditioner technician right away. Other times it is not as obvious. At Romark A/C & Plumbing, we have identified the following top 5 instances when you will need to repair your heating and cooling system.
Thermostat Does Not Work
If you are running your thermostat on full blast all day long and still getting chilled at night, you will want to have your furnace looked at. Even small changes in thermostat settings should be enough to heat your house and if you are running it at a high temperature all the time without much result, your furnace is not running as efficiently as it should be.
Your Electric Bills Are through the Roof
A sudden spike in your monthly electric bills is a good sign that your furnace is not running as well as it should be, and you will want to call in a professional immediately so that you and your family can live comfortably again without paying too much for it.
Breathing Trouble Is Common
A furnace that needs repairs is often manifest through the health of the people living in the home. If your family starts suddenly experiencing coughs or colds, seasonal allergy symptoms, and asthma, it might actually be a problem with your furnace.
A Drafty House
If your house suddenly feels drafty, a dysfunctional furnace might be the issue. It is common for older homes and homes with gaps around the windows and doors to feel drafty but if your home feels frigid and you have sealed all the gaps, you should call a professional A/C repair company.
You See Ice or Frost
Finally, call a professional if you see ice or frost on the insides of your windows or condensation on the glass in your home, even when all doors and windows are shut. You also will want to watch for ice forming on your roof as this is a clear indicator that your furnace needs to be looked at.
