In Greenville you depend 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 looking at a furnace repair visit any day. Simply put, you might have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even produce trouble with your furnace’s control switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Ken Parker Service Inc, if you see any of these indicators:

  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 liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Indications related to your blower could indicate a slight 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 chilly? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working noisily or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and cut off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a blocked condensation line. This could need both plumbing and HVAC pros to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of issues. 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 Ken Parker Service Inc at 903-883-2829 when you need to schedule repairs or routine maintenance.
