In Dallas 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 repair visit any day. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s threshold switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to look for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas, if you see any of these indicators:

  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 liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could signify a slight 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 cool? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, along with 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 an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and cut off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning 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 obstructed condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of issues. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these indicators, you’ll know when you need to setup furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Air Patrol Air Conditioning & Heating of Texas at 214-261-0034 when you need to arrange repairs or annual maintenance.
