There’s been a bit of warm weather to give us some time outside in the past week, but that’s no excuse to neglect our heaters for the days when temperatures drop below where we’d like them to be. That’s because furnace repair services can happen at any moment, no matter how inconvenient or the temperature outside, causing some homes to be cold on those few days when we’d actually like our heat to be working.

So, today we’re going to focus on some signs that might be clear to you that your furnace isn’t doing so well. Regardless of the culprit is a repair or replacement issue, the fact of the matter is—a professional HVAC technician should give it a serious look before temperatures get any lower than they have been this year.

Before You Shut Off You Furnace This Season, Tackle These Repair Needs

Monday, February 4th, 2019

technician-looking-over-furnaceIt’s hard to say “it’s cold out” and not feel a little guilty, considering what Midwest residents have been dealing with lately. But, let’s face it, around here our baseline temperatures for summer is so high that when winter hits, it does feel cold to us! At least, cold enough to use our furnaces on a nightly basis for at least a couple of months.

Yet, temperatures are warming again, and that ever familiar humidity is rising, which means it’s almost time to shut off our furnaces for good this season in favor of our AC systems. This doesn’t mean you should just forget about your furnace until next year, however! If you were alerted to any repair needs during your pre-season maintenance appointment, or if you detect signs of disrepair, now is the time to call our pros for an inspection. But, what exactly are the signs that you need heating repairs?

Life is great. Joyful young girl is relaxing at home. She is sitting near window and drinking coffeeLet’s face it, here in Florida, we don’t get a lot of use out of our heating systems. Especially if you are one of the many homeowners around here that are using a furnace rather than a year-round heat pump or ductless system.

“Does the Size of My Furnace Matter?”

Monday, December 24th, 2018

furnace venting outsideIf you’re shopping for a new furnace this time of the year, you likely have a lot on your plate. True, we obviously don’t need to worry about frigid temperatures in our part of the country. However, given the baseline of temperatures we’re used to the majority of the year, when those temperatures do drop in the wintertime, we’re thankful for efficient and effective heating systems!

So when it comes time to replace yours, you may be tempted to rush out and just buy the biggest one that will fit your budget. Well, we don’t recommend this. One of the most important reasons we don’t is because size truly does matter, in this case. If your furnace is too large, or too small, you’ll be unpleasantly surprised by the impact.

Monday, December 10th, 2018

white question mark in blue circle on white backgroundIf you lived in the Midwest, the answer to this would have been “probably a couple months ago!” But fortunately, Florida residents have a bit more leniency. In fact, most winters are extremely mild and you may not even need your heater that much. Still though, even if you only need it for a week, you want it to work at its best, right? If this is the case, then scheduling maintenance for this system once a year is essential.

Delaying the call to schedule your maintenance inspection and tune-up could leave you without a properly functioning heater right when you need it the most.
