In Hendersonville you count on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace service visit sooner rather than later. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even cause problems with your furnace’s limit switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like Superior Comfort Systems, if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Signs related to your blower could suggest a bit of a problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working at top volume or producing 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 at once and shut down its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of issues. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
