In Chatsworth 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 routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace fix-up visit in the near future. Simply put, you could have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even produce trouble with your furnace’s control switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some signs for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in a professional, like True Temp Heating & Air Inc, if you see 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 easily as it should, or does it seem feeble? Signs related to your blower could signify a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too little for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running 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 meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and shut down its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a clogged condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC pros to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of complications. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
