Checking the Furnace Flue: It Could Be a Lifesaver!

March 5th, 2018


Safety is a vital part of all the jobs we do for our customers. When we fix a natural gas furnace in a house, we don’t just ensure that it will come on, provide heat, and operate at energy-saving levels. We also make sure it runs as safely as possible. Although gas furnaces are built with the same priority on safety that we use in our work, it is possible for the combustion byproducts from the furnace—which include carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and sulfur dioxide—to accidentally enter living spaces. These are toxic gases and create many serious, life-threatening health hazards.

You’re probably aware of what high concentrations of these gases do. But the safety concerns aren’t only about a large amount of combustion byproducts flooding into a home. There’s also the risk of chronic exposure to low levels. The symptoms aren’t as obvious, but over the long-term can be just as dangerous, especially to infants and the elderly. The main reason for the low-level presence of combustion byproducts is a furnace that is venting poorly.

Why Does My Gas Furnace Keep Shutting Down Early?

February 19th, 2018

question-mark-badgeHas this been happening to you? You set your thermostat to turn on your gas furnace (or you have a program that turns it on at a specific time), and it turns on but shuts down only a few minutes later—long before your house has a chance to get warm. As you can guess, this isn’t normal. Your furnace is supposed to remain on long enough to reach the temperature setting on the thermostat and then gradually cycle off. Something is amiss, and you may need to call professionals in Haughton, LA for heating repair to get it fixed.

What Is the Best Air Filter and Air Purifier Combination?

February 5th, 2018

air-fliter-cuFebruary isn’t too early to start thinking about the spring. The start of spring means allergy season, although it doesn’t always wait for the official first day of spring. It can strike as early as this month. As soon as the weather warms up a bit, pollen-bearing plants start to bloom and the pollen count spikes. That means sniffles, sneezes, asthma, and worse!

If you’re worried about allergy season, or about just staying healthy in general in your house, it’s a good idea to have indoor air quality improvements installed in your HVAC system. Air filters and air purifiers are the most common methods of removing allergens and other aggravating particles from circulating around a house. Usually, IAQ experts pair a filter with a purifier. Filters are a standard way of air cleaning, and they’re useful for almost any home. Since some smaller particles can work through a filter’s mesh, an air purifier serves as the second line of defense.

But there are many types and strengths of air filters, and just as there are many types of air purifiers. How do you find the best combination for great air quality in your home?

Repairs an Electric Furnace May Need

December 25th, 2017

stripping-electrical-wiresWhen winter weather arrives, what type of heating system in your home keeps you warm? Furnaces are the most common, and the majority run from natural gas. Not all houses have this option, however, either because they don’t have a connection to a natural gas line or because of concerns over the safety of gas-burning systems. In these cases, an electric furnace is a good alternative. An electric furnace costs more to run (electricity is a more expensive energy than gas), but it also costs less to install. An electric furnace can often outlast a gas model.

Here’s another benefit: because electric furnaces don’t suffer the same level of wear as a furnace that uses combustion gas, they tend to have fewer repair needs over their lifetimes. Annual heating maintenance can drop that already low amount by 85%.

Nothing can prevent all repairs, however. If your electric furnace malfunctions, contact us to arrange for fast furnace repair service.
