In Oxford you rely on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 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 performance. It could even produce problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some indicators for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Franklin's Heating & Air Conditioning, Inc., if you notice any of these symptoms:

  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 freely as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications related to your blower could signify a slight 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 cold? 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 operating noisily or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace immediately and cut 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 need 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 issues. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
