In Shreveport you rely on your furnace to keep you comfy throughout the chilly time of year. If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be needing a furnace fix-up visit any day. At the very least, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can impede air flow and impact your furnace’s performance. It could even cause problems with your furnace’s limit switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve collected some signs for you to search for. The earlier you can call for a heat pump maintenance, the better. Call in a professional, like Moon's Air, if you see any of these symptoms:

  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 tired? Symptoms 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 ramping up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a issue 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, along with other things.
  3. Your furnace is loud. If your furnace starts operating 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 mess around with this one. If you smell gas, cut off your furnace right away and shut down its gas supply. Stay clear from lighting matches or turning on lights until your HVAC pro or your gas company checks it.
  5. You find water pooling around your furnace. Usually this is a obstructed condensation line. This could require both plumbing and HVAC experts to solve.
  6. Your utility bill keeps growing. If your bill is rising, but your usage is not, there could be a series of issues. 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 arrange furnace repair. And we’re here when you need it. Call Moon's Air at 318-671-5355 when you need to schedule repairs or regular maintenance.
