Simply put, you might have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and impact your furnace’s execution. It could even create trouble with your furnace’s control switch, which controls furnace operation.

There are a lot of other reasons you may call for a furnace repair. We’ve assembled some signs for you to look for. The sooner you can call for a heat pump repair, the better. Call in a pro, like Twin Air LLC, if you notice any of these symptoms:

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it working enough? Is it working all the time? Is the air blowing through as easily as it should, or does it seem feeble? Indications 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 turning up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still cold? This could be a issue with your thermostat. It could 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 at top volume or making noises you’re not used to hearing, there could be an issue.
