Furnace and AC Repair Services

HVAC repair makes up a large part of what we do. Our technicians will be happy to look over your heating and cooling system to find and fix any issues, but it also helps to know when you should contact us for repairs. It’s easy to assume that you only need an AC or furnace repair service if your system completely breaks down and stops working. However, there are usually signs that things are going wrong long before they get to that point.

Some of the signs of a failing HVAC system include:
  • Rising utility bills
  • Uneven temperatures in home
  • Poor airflow from vents
  • Excessive dust in home
  • Musty or burning smells when running the air conditioner or furnace
  • Sounds such as thumping, grinding, or screeching coming from AC or furnace
  • Warm air coming from vents when AC runs

HVAC Installation in Bement

As reliable as your HVAC system may be, it won’t last forever. In fact, you can expect an air conditioner or furnace to last between 15 and 20 years before it needs replacement. Your system might work longer than that, but it won’t work as reliably as it once did. Newer HVAC systems are much more efficient and need fewer repairs, which will make them less expensive to run. In other words, a new AC or furnace installation will likely save you money in the long run. Our technicians can look at your home and help you find an HVAC system that best suits your needs.

HVAC Maintenance for System Longevity

Like everything else in your household, your HVAC system requires regular maintenance if it’s going to run efficiently. Some of this maintenance involves cleaning dust from your vents, replacing your HVAC filter every month, and clearing debris from your outdoor AC unit. These are all tasks that you can do yourself, but your HVAC system requires more than that. As a rule of thumb, a heating and cooling system should receive at least one tune-up a year. This usually involves simple adjustments such as tightening loose screws or replacing worn parts, but it will help keep your HVAC system running smoothly throughout the year. It could also uncover minor issues that need fixing before they become serious problems. It’s best to schedule this maintenance visit during the spring or fall before you really need your air conditioner or heater.
