Louisiana Furnace Repairs: Signs It’s Time To Call A Pro

No one wants to spend a night shivering because their heater is failing, and we usually try to fix the problem ourselves if we can. When’s it time to admit defeat and have an expert help us out? When it comes to heater malfunctions, homeowners aren’t expected to know everything — that’s what professional furnace repair services are for!

Here at Southern Air, we know how quickly and “easy heater repair” can turn into a more serious problem. That’s why we recommend our team for all your heater repair needs. Our special tools and knowledge will give your unit the advantage it needs to get back up and running as quickly as possible. To help you out, we’ve compiled a list of some of the most common signs that your heater needs help — from the pros!

Poor Indoor Air Quality

Not all symptoms of heater repair are as obvious as the heater blowing cold air, and your heating system is more complex than one unit. Your heater is responsible for regulating the temperature in your home, but it’s also supposed to filter out harmful particles as well. If your air quality takes a hit, this could be a sign that your heater isn’t functioning the way it should. For example, seasonal allergies may be worse inside your home, asthma attacks or coughs might increase or respiratory irritation may become more prevalent.

Make sure your air filters are cleaned regularly to combat that accumulation of debris. If your home still seems invaded by air particles, you’ll need some professional advice. Our team can locate the source of the problem and find the solution that’s best for your home.

Frequent Air Duct Cleaning (Where’d All This Dust Come From?)

As part of your indoor air system, your air ducts are in contact with a steady stream of air throughout the day. If your air is full of dust and debris, the ducts will usually reflect that. If you notice yourself dusting more often or wiping the air registers to clear away dust, then you have a problem.

Extra Long Heating Cycles

During a cold front, you might be grateful for a long heating cycle, but you won’t be as happy when you get your energy bill at the end of the month! Your heater is designed to work in tandem with your thermostat and an array of sensors to provide the right amount of heat to your home. If your thermostat sensors aren’t accurate, then your heater has no idea when you need warmer air. For example, when you set the thermostat to 70 degrees, your thermostat is supposed to relay information to the heater to turn on when your home is below 70 degrees. It’s also supposed to tell your heater when it’s reached 70 degrees and no longer needs heating. These things are important to keeping your heater accurate and efficient.

Broken Limit Switch

Inside furnaces, there is a sensor called the limit switch. This switch measures how hot the inside of the furnace gets. According to what temperature this switch senses, it tells the blower fan to turn on and off. If the switch is broken, it might allow the furnace to run for longer than it should. You might notice long heater cycles or your furnace running when the air isn’t moving around your home. Make sure an expert looks at this to prevent fires and other furnace damage.
