How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

When it’s chilly in Mankato area you need your furnace to keep you warm. If it’s been some time since your system had maintenance, you could have a furnace repair appointment in your future.

3. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Have you raised the temperature again and again but haven’t noticed it feeling any warmer? This could indicate a few specific problems. It could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be an issue with your gas source or pilot light. It could even be that your furnace isn’t large enough for your house.
