In Carlsbad you depend on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace fix-up visit any day. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even create issues with your furnace’s control switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some indicators for you to look for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like Banister's Heating & Air Conditioning Services, if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications related to your blower could signify a bit of a 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 problem 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 working noisily or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a clogged condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC pros 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 expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
