If it’s been a while since you had a standard maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace repair visit sooner rather than later. Simply put, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and impact your furnace’s efficiency.

  1. Your blower doesn’t seem to be operating properly. Is it operating enough? Is it operating all the time? Is the air blowing through as freely as it should, or does it seem tired? Symptoms related to your blower could indicate a slight problem with your air filter or the interior 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 little for your home. It may even be a issue with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
