In Marshall you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace service visit sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and impact your furnace’s performance. It could even cause issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some signs for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a professional, like All Elements Heating & Air LLC, if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem tired? Indications related to your blower could indicate a bit of a problem with your air filter or the interior blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a blocked condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC experts to repair.
