Enjoy sweaters as a fashion statement, not a furnace substitute.
Are you experiencing cold drafts in the winter? We’re so used to the hot weather in Texas that we don’t have a closet full of wooly slippers and big fluffy robes in our house. We depend on our funace to keep our home warm and cozy.
If you’re not sure if you need a new furnace, keep in mind most furnaces are designed to last ￼16-20 years. If yours is around that age, and needing more repairs every winter, it might be time to let us make a house call to discuss service, installation, or a free estimate. Or, you can fill out our 24-hr service request at right.
Having to wear socks to bed on a cold winter night is bad enough, but did you know that as furnaces age, a host of other dangerous problems can crop up? Cracks in aging furnace heat exchangers can leak carbon monoxide into your home undetected. Old wires can fray and catch fire. And that worries us.
In fact, we were awakened by an explosion about ten years ago when the gas line to our neighbor’s furnace rubbed over the furnace housing until a little hole was created. A little gas began escaping and eventually caused the explosion and fire that burned the house to the ground. Luckily, our neighbors were on vacation at the time. We don’t want this to happen to you.
With a simple professional inspection, we will help you understand the current condition and safety issues facing your heater. You’ll rest so much easier with a professional opinion on the operability of your furnace.
What are some signs your old furnace might need replacing? Old furnaces often start to make some strange banging, popping, and rattling noises as they get toward the end of their life. You might also hear the blower turning on and off frequently. Further, if you are constantly adjusting your thermostat, because some rooms are too cold and some too hot, it might be time to start thinking about a new furnace.
If you’ve decided to replace your furnace, you can look forward to a host of benefits:
- Money savings. Furnaces often lose their efficiency as they age especially if they have not been properly maintained. As a result your furnace may run longer to provide the same amount of heat, increasing your gas & electric bills.
- Better performance. With a new Dallas heater, you’ll enjoy improved indoor air quality with fewer temperature inconsistencies.
- Fewer repairs. Aren’t warranties a homeowner’s best friend? New units are covered by warranties for the first few years, so if you experience any issue with your heater, just give us a call. We’ll look up your installation information and work with any warranties to get you back to normal again.
