When Do You Need Emergency Heating Repair?
If you’re not sure what constitutes a heating emergency, there are some signs that you should call for our emergency heating services. If your furnace has turned off and it won’t come back on, then it’s an obvious sign that you need to call us right away.
Beyond that, there are indications that your furnace is not working correctly. Calling our repair services is a proactive step to keeping your furnace from shutting down.
One sign of trouble with your furnace is when the ignition flame turns from blue to yellow. This means your gas isn’t burning at the right temperature, and can even mean you have a carbon monoxide leak. Call us immediately if your furnace’s flame goes to yellow. Carbon monoxide leaks can kill you and your family if you stay in your home, so don’t risk it. Additionally, if your carbon monoxide detector is indicating high levels of the gas, don’t hesitate to call us right away.
Another indication of a serious problem with your heating system is when your fan won’t turn off. What this means is that there is a problem with either the electrical or mechanical part of your furnace, and it needs to be repaired. Before calling us, you may want to make sure your fan is set on the auto setting. If it is, and the fan still won’t turn off, then you definitely need repair services.
If you smell burning or the unpleasant smell of rotten eggs, this could mean two different things: either there’s a gas leak, or you may have an oil leak. If you suspect an oil leak it’s important to contact our experienced HVAC technicians for help. When a gas leak is suspected take yourself, family and pets to safety and contact the gas company right away.
When that air coming out of your heating system vents are blowing cold air, then you know something’s not right. We will come check this out and get your system back on track in no time. This type of service issue is normally due to pilot or thermostat issue and can be fixed fairly quickly.
Do You Need a New Furnace Installed?
If your furnace is older, it may be time to have it replaced. Depending on the model, size and how well maintained it’s been, most furnaces last between 15 and 30 years. We will help you determine if it’s time for a new furnace by troubleshooting any current problems you’ve been having with it. When it’s time for a new furnace installation, you’ll want to consider replacing your air conditioning system as well.
You may wonder why replacing the AC and furnace at the same time is necessary, but there are some important factors involved. Furnaces have a lifespan that’s twice that of the AC unit. It’s likely your air conditioning is also ready to be replaced if your furnace is. Installing both the AC and furnace at the same time will save you money.
