Why You Don’t Want a Cracked Furnace Heat Exchanger

Monday, December 6th, 2021

If we were to guess what kind of heater you use in your home to stay comfortable during our chilly winters, it’s probably safe to guess it’s a natural gas furnace. After all, these are the most popular heaters throughout the country, and their popularity is highest in states with weather systems like ours. Natural gas is a cost-efficient fuel source–more so than electricity. Since most households also have ductwork running through, furnaces are also a bit more popular than boilers.

Today’s modern furnaces are designed with safety in mind, and will operate even more safely if you make sure you stay on top of your annual professional tune-ups.

But it’s important to remember that even the most well-cared-for gas furnace has the potential to suffer from gas leaks and combustion hazards that require quick, professional repair. The biggest repair concern is a cracked heat exchanger. Ignoring this problem can lead to a significant safety hazard in your home. Read on to learn more!

“Help! My Heat Pump Won’t Switch Modes”

Monday, November 8th, 2021

By the definition of most Colorado Springs residents, temperatures are still pretty “mild.” Still, though, you are probably at least itching to turn on your heater during our very chilly nights. So, what happens if you went to switch your heat pump from cooling mode to heating mode, only to discover that it won’t switch over?

First off, it’s worth mentioning that this problem is a lot less likely to happen with preventive maintenance. While a standard central air conditioner or furnace needs maintenance once a year, a heat pump does twice the work as these conventional systems and therefore needs twice the care.

Maintenance allows our professionals to thoroughly inspect, clean, and adjust components that need it. We’ll also check for signs that your system needs repair, and alert you to those repair needs so you can get that on your schedule.

If you’ve already had maintenance done in the last few months, however, and you’re still experiencing this problem, then it’s very clear something is amiss. But what is it? Read on to find out!

Take This Important First Step in Preparing for Chilly Weather

Monday, October 11th, 2021

No, it’s not going to start snowing tomorrow, most likely. But fall is certainly upon us, which means temperatures will soon start cooling down.

This means that it’s just about time to turn our attention away from our homes’ air conditioners and turn it to our heating systems instead.

The first step in preparing for a potentially very chilly winter is making sure your furnace is actually ready for the huge decline in temperatures, through a maintenance tune-up.

This is a service that should be done annually. Now is typically the best time to have it done because it’s before you need the system the most, and so you’ll be less likely to experience a disruption in service. Read on to learn more!
