October 13, 2017

During the cooler Carpentersville 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 in your home, keeping you and your furnace on friendly terms. However, if it does, a simple call to Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc will help bring warm and comfort back into your house in no time. We’ve got some indicators you should look for to help you establish if you’re in need a furnace repair—hopefully before it results in an emergency repair. Call Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc as soon as possible if you see any of these complications:

  1. You smell gas. Shut down your furnace instantly and shut off its gas supply if you smell gas. Don’t light a match or anything else that makes a flame and keep your lights off until your furnace can be inspected by an experienced HVAC professional or your gas company.
  2. Your home is too chilly. If you’re constantly turning up the thermostat, yet you remain cold, a furnace repair might be necessary. While this could be a indication of a problem with your thermostat, it might also mean your furnace is not big enough for your house.
  3. Your furnace is noisy. If you hear a change in the sounds coming from your furnace and it’s become noisier than usual, 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 recognize an increase in your energy bill, there are a few different problems you could be experiencing. Your professional from Controlled Comfort HVAC Inc 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 all the time, you could have a problem. It could be a something as minimal as an air filter problem or something as large as a motor problem. We’ll help you sort it out.
