In South Beloit and Belvidere you count on your furnace to keep you comfy 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 preparing for furnace fix-up visit any day. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s performance. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s limit switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some symptoms for you to search for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Fleming Heating & Air Conditioning Inc., if you note any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Signs related to your blower could suggest a bit of a 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 cool? 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 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 generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace right away and shut down its gas supply. Get around lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC pro 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 need both plumbing and HVAC experts to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a series of problems. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.
