If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you may have a furnace repair soon in your future.

You may have a problem if your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing. 2. Your blower isn’t operating how it should. Is it running for enough time? Is it running endlessly? Does the air flow seem weak? You may have a problem with your air filter or furnace blower. 3. Your home isn’t heating thoroughly. Have you turned up the thermostat again and again but don’t feel like the temperature is what it should be? This could suggest a few particular problems. It could be something wrong with your thermostat. It may be something to do with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t large enough for your home. 4.
