In Springfield you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace repair visit any day. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency. It could even produce problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some signs for you to scan for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Bormida Mechanical Services Inc, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  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 easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications related to your blower could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the interior 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 problem with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too undersized 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 operating loudly or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace immediately and turn off its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC technician 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 solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a series of problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
