In Colorado Springs you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a regular maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be looking at a furnace service visit in the near future. Simply put, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even cause issues with your furnace’s threshold switch, which works furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to search for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump service, the better. Call in an expert, like Mitchell Heating, 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 easily as it should, or does it seem weak? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a bit of a problem with your air filter or the indoor 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 problem with your thermostat. It may be that your furnace is too small for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts working at top volume or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to interfere with this one. If you smell gas, shut down your furnace at once and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or changing on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a clogged condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to repair.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a series of problems. Your HVAC expert will help find out what’s going wrong.
