What are the warning signs that my heating system is failing?
Heating systems over ten years old often show signs of losing efficiency and power. With routine maintenance and repairs, your heating system may last up to 20 years. The most significant warning signs that your heating system is failing include strange noises, weird odors, high energy bills, uneven heat production, and slow warming.
Is it cheaper to install an AC with a furnace?
Yes, upgrading your air conditioning unit or adding purifying products during your furnace installation is less expensive. We can help you understand how your systems work tother for optimum efficiency.
How does a ductless heat pump work?
A ductless heat pump is perfect to use for heating and cooling to improve overall energy efficiency. A ductless heat pump doesn’t require ducts for zonal heating and cooling. It uses an outdoor compressor unit with indoor air handling units that are linked by a refrigerant line.
When should I replace my furnace?
We don’t recommend waiting until your furnace dies to consider a furnace replacement. You don’t want to be stuck in the cold without any heat. It’s best to check for any warning signs, including inefficient heating, changes in the pilot light, and old age.
Do I really need heating maintenance every year?
Yes! A furnace cleaning is essential for improving the performance and efficiency of your heating system. We can often find simple issues to repair before they become significant problems that threaten the life of your heating system.
What do I do when the heat goes out?
If the heat goes out in your home, don’t panic. You should contact the power company to determine if there are any outages. You can use your fireplace, put on layers of clothing, and stay together in one room. Never bring in an outside fuel-burning heat source or leave space heaters unattended. Contact our professionals, and we will get to your home as soon as possible for emergency heating services.
When should I replace my furnace?
Your furnace often gives signs that it’s about time for a replacement furnace. The most common signs it’s time to replace your furnace include:
- Loud noise during standard operation
- A furnace over the age of 15
- Constantly fluctuating temperatures in your home
- Skyrocketing energy bills
- Constant furnace repairs
- Flames are yellow instead of blue
- Soot is collecting near the furnace register
What is the difference between a gas and oil boiler?
Natural gas has no onsite storage needs, while oil burners require onsite storage. A local utility company provides natural gas, so you need to have a gas line in or near your home. A gas boiler is typically more affordable to operate for most homeowners.
How often do I replace my HVAC filters?
We recommend changing your furnace filter at least once every 90 days. Changing your filter is important to ensure it doesn’t get excessive debris and buildup that slows down the warm air from heating your home.
How do I maximize the efficiency of my heating system?
Heating your home can significantly increase your energy bill during the coldest months of the year. The best ways to stay warm and save money on your utility bills include:
- Clean Your Filters –It’s important to clean your filters monthly. When your filters get dirty, the air is restricted and works harder to pump through your home.
- Turn Down Your Thermostat– Lower your heat between 60 and 70 degrees to significantly improve your heating costs.
- Seal Air Leaks –Air leaks are the culprit of leaking air. Your heating system will need to work harder to replace the escaping air.
- Schedule a Furnace Tune-Up –Our maintenance tune-ups ensure your heating system is in optimal condition.
