In Bountiful you depend on your furnace to keep you comfortable 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 fix-up visit in the near future. As a minimum, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can block air flow and effect your furnace’s performance. It could even produce issues with your furnace’s control switch, which runs furnace operation.

There are many other reasons you may require a furnace repair. We’ve collected some symptoms for you to scan for. The quicker you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a professional, like Craig's Heating & Cooling, if you notice any of these signs:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it running all the time? Is the air blowing through as liberally as it should, or does it seem feeble? Symptoms related to your blower could signify 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 cool? 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 problem with your gas source or your pilot light, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts running noisily or generating noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be trouble.
  4. You smell gas. You certainly don’t want to interfere 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. Often times this is a blocked condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC professionals to fix.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is climbing, but your usage is not, there could be a variation of complications. Your HVAC professional 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 Craig's Heating & Cooling at 801-295-3357 or use our online scheduler when you need to setup repairs or routine maintenance.
