Maintenance helps to prolong a furnace’s lifespan, and can help save you a substantial amount of time and money. With that being said, here are the main warning signs that your furnace needs to be repaired:

  • You can smell gas. This is never a good sign! If you can smell gas leaking, it’s important to shut down your furnace ASAP and call a professional HVAC technician immediately – don’t wait to do this.
  • Your thermostat has stopped working. If your thermostat has stopped working, this is definitely a sign that you furnace needs to be repaired. Regardless of whether this malfunction is due to electrical issues or loose wiring, a broken thermostat should be fixed as soon as possible.
  • There is water collecting around your furnace. Uh oh! Is there water pooling around your unit? In this case, this problem is typically caused by a clogged condensate line. It’s not as dangerous as, say, a gas leak – but you should still get it checked out quickly.
  • Your air is blowing inefficiently. Is there barely any air coming out of your vents? The problem could be related to your fan, or possibly your motor. You should consult with an HVAC technician as soon as possible, either way.
