How to Know When Its Time for a Furnace Repair

 

In Hattiesburg you count on your furnace to keep you warm throughout the winter. If it’s been a while since you had a routine maintenance appointment for your heat pump, you could be preparing for furnace service visit in the near future. Simply put, you probably have a dirty air filter, which can obstruct air flow and influence your furnace’s performance. It could even create problems with your furnace’s limit switch, which runs furnace operation.

  2. Your home isn’t getting warm enough. Are you hiking up the thermostat again and again, but you’re still chilly? This could be a difficulty with your thermostat. It might be that your furnace is too undersized for your home. It may even be a difficulty with your gas source or your pilot light, among other things.
