In Vancouver you count on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace service visit sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even produce issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in an expert, like Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC, if you note any of these indicators:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it running enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem tired? Signs related to your blower could indicate a minor problem with your air filter or the internal blower.
  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a problem with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working at top volume or producing noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You definitely don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, turn off your furnace right away and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many 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 complications. Your HVAC technician will help find out what’s going wrong.
