In Redford 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 regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace repair visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even produce issues 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 assembled some symptoms for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a professional, like Airtronic Heating & Cooling, if you note any of these symptoms:

  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 easily as it should, or does it seem tired? Signs related to your blower could suggest a minor 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 chilly? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running at top volume or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and cut off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a clogged 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.
