In Holdrege you depend on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the colder months. 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. At the very least, you could have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and effect your furnace’s efficiency. It could even create issues with your furnace’s limit switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to scan for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a pro, like Durable Service , if you notice any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could suggest a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you ramping 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 little for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, amid other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  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 turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often times this is a blocked condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC pros to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is increasing, 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 signs, you’ll know when you need to arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Durable Service at 308-832-4327 when you need to schedule repairs or regular maintenance.
