In Grand Prairie 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 service visit sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even produce issues with your furnace’s limit switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some symptoms for you to scan for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Mustang Mechanical, if you note any of these signs:

  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 freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications 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 hiking up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a clogged 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 variation of complications. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
