In East Bernard you count on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace fix-up visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even create issues with your furnace’s limit switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a professional, like E B Air Conditioning & Heating Service, if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications related to your blower could signify a minor problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating noisily or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a clogged condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC pros to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of complications. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
