In Branchville you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace service visit in the near future. Simply put, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s performance. It could even cause trouble with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc., if you note any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem tired? Indications related to your blower could signify a minor problem with your air filter or the internal 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 problem with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working noisily or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace at once and shut down its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a clogged condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC pros to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation 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 schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Willco Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Inc. at 862-345-6896 when you need to setup repairs or routine maintenance.
