In Bossier City you rely 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 needing a furnace repair visit any day. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s performance. It could even produce trouble with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc, if you notice any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications related to your blower could signify a slight problem with your air filter or the interior 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 might be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating noisily or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a blocked condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
  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 technician 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 Central Aire Heating & A/C Inc at 318-855-2326 when you need to setup repairs or regular maintenance.
