In Chadron you rely on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the colder months. 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 sooner rather than later. As a minimum, you might have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s execution. It could even create issues with your furnace’s limit switch, which works furnace operation.

There are a few other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some indicators for you to look for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like MPC Heating & Cooling, if you note any of these symptoms:

  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 ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cool? This could be a difficulty 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, among 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 a problem.
  4. You smell gas. You absolutely don’t want to mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and turn off its gas supply. Avoid lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC expert or your gas company looks at it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Often 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 increasing, but your usage is not, there could be a series of complications. Your HVAC professional will help find out what’s going wrong.

Now that you’ve read these indicators, you’ll know when you need to schedule furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call MPC Heating & Cooling at 308-432-5301 when you need to arrange repairs or annual maintenance.
