In Dallas and Atlanta surrounding areas you rely on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace service visit any day. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even produce trouble with your furnace’s threshold switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some symptoms for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Innovative Mechanical, LLC, if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications related to your blower could suggest 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 chilly? This could be a problem with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating noisily or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace at once and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a clogged condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC experts to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to setup furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Innovative Mechanical, LLC at 770-726-7407 when you need to schedule repairs or routine maintenance.
