Nonetheless, if it happens, a simple call to Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning will help bring warm and comfort back into your house in no time. We’ve got some signs you should watch for to help you decide if you’re in need a furnace repair—hopefully before it results in an emergency repair. Call Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning 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 examined by an experienced HVAC professional or your gas company.
  2. Your home is too chilly. If you’re repeatedly turning up the thermostat, yet you remain cold, a furnace repair could be needed. While this could be a symptom of a problem with your thermostat, it could also mean your furnace is too small for your space.
  3. Your furnace is noisy. If you notice a change in the sounds coming from your furnace and it’s not the typical noise, it’s probably time for a repair visit.
  4. Your utility bill is climbing without increased usage. If you’re operating your furnace as you usually do but notice an increase in your utility bill, there are several different problems you could be experiencing. Your professional from Oak Grove Heating & Air Conditioning can identify 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 constantly, you could have a problem. It might be a something as minor as an air filter problem or something as big as a motor problem. We’ll help you figure it out.
