In Belton you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace fix-up visit any day. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some indicators for you to scan for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Bell Air Conditioning Inc., if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a minor 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 cold? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC pros to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of issues. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
