How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

In Grimes you depend on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace fix-up visit in the near future. At the very least, you might have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s efficiency. It could even produce trouble with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Heartland Heating & Cooling, if you note any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a bit of a problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It may 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 running loudly or making 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, turn off your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of complications. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these signs, you’ll know when you need to arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Heartland Heating & Cooling at 515-344-3579 when you need to arrange repairs or routine maintenance.
