Community HVAC Needs

While our Birmingham winters aren’t typically severe, we can experience freezing conditions. It’s important to keep your furnace running correctly because poor function can lead to higher energy bills. Our experts can troubleshoot quickly so that they can provide you with an accurate quote for service. When you contact us, it’s always helpful to have information about your equipment brand and model so that we can check on any known problems that exist with the system. We’ll get you scheduled right away.

Replacement Concerns

If your equipment is older, you may be worried about the need to replace rather than have a furnace repair completed. Although it’s generally less expensive to repair a system, there are times when the only alternative is a replacement. There are also times when furnace repair is possible but not practical. We will give you an honest evaluation of your equipment, letting you know the practicality of repair verses replacement.

A furnace can have a lifespan of approximately 20 years. It’s important for the modern homeowner to realize, though, that energy-efficient equipment being designed today can provide a huge value in terms of related operating expenses. Your investment in a new system can often be recovered over a few years’ time through your savings on energy bills. There are also some excellent tax incentives for homeowners who select eligible energy-saving models.

Maintaining Your Equipment

After your furnace repair has been completed, we suggest that you implement a plan for periodic maintenance of the system. It’s important to check your filter monthly while the equipment is in use, starting the winter with a new filter. Clogged filters are one of the most common problems we encounter in furnace repair. You should also make sure that your vents are free from obstructions.

We offer tune-up service, a worthwhile consideration if you don’t like the high energy costs or frustrating malfunctions on cold days. During this type of visit, we inspect both internal and external parts of your furnace. We also inspect components that affect the function of your HVAC system. Your ducts and thermostat play an important role in energy efficiency in your home, and we check for problems with these as well.

We will tighten loose parts, lubricate moving parts and verify that there aren’t any leaks. While optimizing your equipment so that it runs according to manufacturer guidelines, we also look for indications of frail components that could lead to a later malfunction. Your furnace’s efficiency can be improved through this maintenance work and the lifespan extended.
