Having your furnace break down in the middle of the winter is not only extremely inconvenient, it’s dangerous to you, your family, your pets and your home. Furnaces tend to break down while they are working their hardest, which is usually when it’s the coldest outside. However, almost all of the repairs we see in furnaces could have been prevented with yearly maintenance. Having a trained technician evaluate your system each year will help identify problems before they fail completely. Our technicians also take this time to clean the gas burners and combustion chambers, test the igniter resistance, test and tighten electrical connections, inspect air filters, calibrate the thermostat, and inspect all safety controls.
If you find yourself shivering because of a furnace in need of repairs, our trained technicians carry parts on hand for most makes and models of furnaces to ensure a quick fix. Call us ASAP if you notice changes such as low output or strange noises coming from your unit. We will work to have a friendly, knowledgeable technician out as quickly as possible to prevent further damage to your unit.
It’s important to beware of carbon monoxide leaks coming from your furnace. Carbon monoxide can escape from even a tiny crack into your home causing deadly exposure. Symptoms of a carbon monoxide leak include dizziness, headaches, weakness, difficulty breathing, and nausea. If these symptoms are present in the occupants of your home, immediately turn off all fuel-burning appliances, ventilate your home, and call a technician.
