    Gas Furnace Repair, Service and Installation

    Gas Furnace Repair, Service and Installation


    Is your forced air furnace giving you fits? Are you trying to avoid costly furnace repairs? When was the last time anyone serviced the unit or even changed the filter? HVAC troubleshooting and repair is one of those DIY projects you should reconsider before starting. With the amount of circuitry, wiring and built in safety’s, you may cause more problems than you solve. Most failures can be detected before problems arise on the coldest day of the year. Having a Licensed Heating Contractor maintain your HVAC equipment can save you headaches and money.

    Gas furnaces need to be set up properly to run efficiently at higher elevations. For example, Natural Gas and Propane Btu inputs need to be adjusted properly so that the units aren’t “over-fired,” causing the furnace to overheat and short-cycle. In addition to reducing the efficiency of a unit, an over-fired furnace can also pose safety concerns by improper burning. Incomplete combustion can cause excessive carbon monoxide production.

    Your furnace should be inspected annually. Annual servicing and maintenance can prevent costly emergency furnace repair.

    Furnace Certification – Home Sale

    Furnace Certification – Home Sale

    Why is a furnace certification requested during a home sale? Your HVAC equipment is a major system in the house and should be taken seriously. Especially when buying an existing home.
    A general rule of thumb is approximately 20 years life expectancy for a forced air furnace. This life expectancy can be greatly reduced by improper maintenance. For instance, if the previous owners were not replacing air filters regularly, (as in every 4-8 weeks) excessive heat may have stressed the metal in the heat exchanger. Although the furnace is designed to get hot, running the system over temperature for extended periods of time is detrimental to the system.
    The heat exchanger is basically a sealed metal combustion chamber. Once burning gas is introduced, it gets to a predetermined temperature the blower starts to move the air across the chamber which warms the air and heats your house. The heat exchanger is continuously heated and cooled which stresses it over time. Cracks can develop. A crack in the metal may allow combustion products to enter the circulating air. These cracks can be hard to see. Once these cracks open, the furnace is operating dangerously. For the buyer, if this isn’t noticed they might find themselves replacing the furnace and for the seller, this may mean the difference between making or losing the sale.

    Our certification process includes a test/inspection of the heat exchanger and a detailed evaluation of the furnace operation.

    Gas Fireplace Service and Repair

    Gas Fireplace Service and Repair


    Your gas fireplace does require maintenance. Direct vent units constantly draw outdoor air into the burn chamber when the pilot is burning. Particulates can accumulate as ash in the pilot burner. Over a period of time, this will restrict the gas flow. The common complaint is that the main burner will not ignite. Restricted gas flow causes a weekend pilot flame, not allowing an adequate millivolt charge to be created.

    Our servicing includes removal and cleaning of the fireplace glass and a visual inspection of the gasket material. We will remove the log kit, clean and inspect the burner. Most importantly, we disassemble and clean the pilot assembly and  pilot orifice. Once the pilot is reassembled and lit, we check the millivolt readings during each cycle of operation. If everything checks out, the glass is put back in to position. A gas leak test and CO (Carbon Monoxide) test is performed to ensure the unit is drafting properly.

    Approximately 80% of gas fireplace problems can be resolved by properly servicing your equipment. Should any repairs be needed, we have a ample supply of replacement parts stocked.
