In Lexington you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 fix-up visit sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s execution. It could even produce problems with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may need a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Kelley Mechanical, if you see any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem weak? Signs related to your blower could signify a slight problem with your air filter or the interior 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 difficulty with your thermostat. It could be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to meddle with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and turn off its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or switching on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Many times this is a obstructed condensation line. This could demand both plumbing and HVAC professionals to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, 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 Kelley Mechanical at 859-209-3003 when you need to schedule repairs or regular maintenance.
