In Saint Louis you depend on your furnace to keep you warm 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 in the near future. Simply put, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s control switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve compiled some symptoms for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like Morgner Incorporated Air Conditioning & Heating, if you notice any of these signs:

  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 freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? 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 ramping 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 undersized for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC technician or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a obstructed condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC pros to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a number of problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
