In Pacheco you count on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace fix-up visit any day. Simply put, you could have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s execution. It could even cause problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require 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 a pro, like Clean Air HVAC, if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Indications 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 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 issue with your gas source or your pilot light, amid 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 trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace immediately and cut off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company inspects it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a blocked condensation line. This could demand 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 number of complications. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these symptoms, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Clean Air HVAC at 925-233-6238 when you need to schedule repairs or annual maintenance.
