Emergency Furnace Repair

No Heat? Don’t panic! If your furnace has stopped working, you are not alone. Many homeowners find themselves in the dead of winter with a non-functional furnace. Don’t panic and rush into making a decision about whom to allow into your home for service. Here are a few things to consider before you let a technician into your home:

• Is the technician from a legitimate business or is he a “fly-by-nighter?” Legitimate heating contractors will have a backlog of service calls to make during extreme temperatures. You should hesitate to have the person out who has time when no other company seems to. “Fly by nighters” always have time to take your money. What they do not have time for is the follow up service to make sure your equipment is functioning as it should. They generally don’t take the required permits for the work they do and are not licensed or insured. You are better off waiting for a day or two, or paying the overtime emergency service rate for a legitimate contractor to come to your home.

Heating and Cooling Maintenance Tips

Your furnace and AC units need regular maintenance

Your furnace and AC units need regular maintenance. Do you know what needs to be done?

Have your  furnace and A/C maintained yearly. Like a car, a furnace and/or A/C is full of moving parts that need to be serviced. Newer furnaces condense water internally, making it critical to flush/clean the internal hose assembly to avoid water backup, which leads to costly repairs. Burner service is also critical to avoid de-rating a furnace’s efficiency and keep the furnace running safely.

The cleaning of the A/C coil is important because when the coils start plugging up, pressure builds up in the system, causing a refrigerant leak.

Proper maintenance on a system will mean the difference between a 5- to 10-year life expectancy and a 15- to 20-year life expectancy. Continue reading

The Value of Service and Maintenance Contracts

Maintenance and service agreements are a valuable part of home equipment purchases.

Responsible homeowners handle upkeep of their heating and cooling systems by setting up maintenance and service contracts with a reputable HVAC contractor. Climate extremes like those in Wisconsin make it imperative to ensure proper functioning of home heating and cooling equipment, especially during long winter months.

Yet although homeowners understand the necessity for periodic maintenance, they know less about how their heating and cooling systems operate than how their automobiles work. In addition, newer furnace models have more complicated components that aren’t easy to comprehend. That means any homeowner who is a self-proclaimed do-it-yourselfer can no longer tackle furnace maintenance. Continue reading
