New Furnace Replacement

Posted by Thomas on November 07, 2013 in New Furnace Installation

It is always important to do your homework when your looking for a new replacement furnace for your home. When looking for your new furnace it is best to receive at least 3 estimates. When looking over your new furnace estimates make sure you are comparing apples with apples. Here are some of the most important things to look at:

  1. Equipment and Labor warranties
  2. Check consumer reports for the equipment being purchased and its reliability.
  3. Check the BBB for the company your dealing with along with any customer reviews.
  4. Any additional changes to your system that comes with the new furnace being installed such as: Thermostats, Humidifiers, Main gas shut-off, 110v power switches and Chimney Liners
  5. Be aware of all Terms and Conditions

This checklist will help you make the best choice you can. We hope this helps anyone looking for replacement units this winter season.

Best furnace service for the winter

Posted by Thomas on October 31, 2013 in New Furnace Installation

Here with the winter season upon us, there are a few helpful hints to helping yourself stay warm. Always get your furnace or boiler cleaned and started by a certified professional. Throughout the winter make sure you change your filter once a month. The 3 month air filters are not recommended due to the longer time span of air restriction that will put strain on your furnace blower motor and safety limits in the furnace. Remember anything that breathes better, works and runs better.

When a furnace does not receive adequate air flow it can overheat the furnace and cause a short cycling. A short cycling unit is when a furnace turns on and runs briefly and then shuts down before the thermostat has had an opportunity to satisfy the preset temperature. This type of operation will dramatically reduce the annual fuel efficiency of the furnace.

By allowing a certified technician to clean and start your heating unit you can save yourself costly repairs or early replacement of your furnace. I hope that this brief thought for the this winters heating season helps you out

Having your furnace repaired by a qualified service company is one of the most important decisions you can make. There are many companies to choose from so how do you choose?

  1. Make sure you do a company review check online. This will give you a good representation of what other consumers say about them.
  2. Check with the BBB for any consumer reports or negative feed back.
  3. Make sure that they are using quality parts that are made or your furnace instead of a replacement part that may not work correctly.
