In Columbus you rely on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace fix-up visit any day. Simply put, you could have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and influence your furnace’s efficiency. It could even produce problems with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some indicators for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like Wolfe & Sons Inc, if you note any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem weak? Signs related to your blower could suggest 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 difficulty with your thermostat. It might 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 producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace at once and cut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a clogged condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of complications. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
