In Westminster you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace repair visit any day. Simply put, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and effect your furnace’s performance. It could even cause problems with your furnace’s limit switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some signs for you to scan for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in an expert, like True Heating & Cooling, if you see any of these signs:

  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 freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Signs related to your blower could suggest a minor 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 cold? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running loudly or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace immediately and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of issues. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these signs, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call True Heating & Cooling at 720-316-1898 when you need to arrange repairs or routine maintenance.
