Allerton Furnace and AC Repair

There are few things worse than having your air conditioner or furnace break down on you, which is why our team at Dogtown Heating, Air & Plumbing dedicates itself to providing prompt air conditioning or furnace repair services when you need them. While we always recommend contacting us if you suspect that you have any issues with your HVAC system, there are distinct signs that your system is faulty.

These signs include the following:
  • Higher-than-usual energy bills
  • Uneven temperatures in your home
  • Poor airflow from your vents
  • Excessive dust near or on your vents
  • Sounds such as thumping, rattling, or screeching coming from your furnace or air conditioner
  • Musty or burning smells when you run your AC or furnace

These are all telltale indications that something is wrong with your heating or air conditioning equipment. If you notice any of them, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. The longer you wait, the more difficult it will be to make repairs.

Furnace and AC Installation

Of course, sometimes it’s better to replace your air conditioner or furnace instead of making repairs. A new furnace installation may seem expensive, but it could save you money in the long run. Not only will a new HVAC system require fewer repairs than an older one, but it will work more efficiently to keep your home at a comfortable temperature. That alone will help lower your utility bills.

If you’re not sure whether or not to replace your HVAC system, consider your equipment’s age. Most HVAC systems will work reliably for 15 to 20 years. They can last longer than that, but they won’t be as efficient as a newer system. In fact, many air conditioners and furnaces start to show their age after about 10 years. If your system is at least that old and needs frequent repairs, a new system is definitely in order.

Regular Furnace and AC Maintenance

Like any other appliance in your home, your HVAC system requires regular maintenance to keep running smoothly. This includes things you can do yourself such as replacing the HVAC filter and wiping dust away from your vents, but it also includes engaging an HVAC contractor for regular tune-ups.

You should schedule these tune-ups at least once a year, preferably in the spring or fall when the weather is relatively mild. This will help keep your heating and cooling system working efficiently for years, and it might even uncover minor issues that can get fixed before they turn into major problems.
