What Our Customers say
Is It Time to Repair or Replace Your Furnace?
Winters in Dyer go from mild to extreme cold. We suggest you turn on your heating system in early fall to detect any potential problems early. It’s much better to detect a small problem before it becomes an emergency furnace repair.
We don’t want anyone to find themselves in this stressful situation so here are a few things you can check for early in the season.
FOUL ODOR:Your heating system gathers dust just like any other system that circulates air through your home. If you notice an odor coming from your heating ducts that smells like burning dust, or smoke when you initially turn on your furnace, this is normally caused by dust on the heater exchanger that has gathered over the summer months. If this smell goes away fairly quickly you are O.K.
If it’s persistent, you smell burning plastic, or gas this could be a mechanical problem occurring before a major breakdown. Give us a call and one of our expert techs can inspect your system and quickly identify and resolve any heating issue.
HIGH ENERGY COSTS: We’re all pretty familiar with our average heating costs per month. If you notice that your NIPSCO bill suddenly spikes without any change in your energy habits, it might be due to an aging unit that needs to work harder to reach the set temperature or you may just need annual furnace maintenance.
POOR TEMPERATURE CONTROL: If you notice that your furnace is struggling to heat to the temperature you normally set, your unit is past it’s warranty, or you have had increasing repairs needed. It’s probably time to consider installing a new furnace. We never recommend a replacement unless it’s a benefit to the customer.
LOUD NOISES: Any strange or out of ordinary sounds such as knocking, grinding, banging, rattling, and rumbling are pretty clear signs that your heating system isn’t working as well as it should. A rattling or knocking sounds can be something as simple as a loose panel or screw or a sign of a more serious mechanical problem. If you notice any of these signs give us a call and we will inspect your system and quickly track down the issue.
Older systems can be fixed and repaired, and we always lean towards a repair option first, as long as we believe it’s in the best interest of the customer. As time goes on and your unit runs out of its warranty, it will become costlier to fix after every breakdown. When this time comes you can trust us to recommend an efficient, reliable furnace unit that will be sized correctly for your home.
