Getting a tune-up for your furnace is a lot like going to the doctor every year for your physical. There’s nothing in particular wrong; you just want to get everything checked out to be sure. It’s best to schedule a furnace tune-up once a year before the weather turns.
When TSS Home Comfort sends one of our experienced technicians to your home for a furnace tune-up, they will:
- Test the heating elements
- Verify the limit and safety switches
- Check the pilot light and electrical components
- Grease the mechanical parts
- Adjust the thermostat
- Clean the unit thoroughly
- Confirm there are no system leaks or openings in the ductwork
All of this maintenance will help guarantee your furnace will run reliably throughout the winter. Also, a thorough furnace tune-up will save you on energy costs as your system will run more efficiently with less need for repairs.
While prevention is the best medicine, there will come a time when your furnace will require some sort of repair. Even if that time happens to be in the middle of the night and your furnace needs emergency repairs, TSS Home Comfort is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to assist you.
For non-emergencies, we’ll schedule the soonest time available to send a licensed professional to your home for heater repairs. Here are some common furnace repair issues you can call us for:
- Inconsistent Heating – Could be issues with airflow or vents
- Insufficient Heating – Air ducts or the thermostat may be to blame
- Increases in Energy Bills – Usually due to easy-to-fix mechanical problems
- Strange Sounds – Ignoring these could lead to more significant problems
Regardless of what issue you’re facing, our technicians will always give their honest advice and suggest what is best. We will always recommend repairs when they are the most reliable option and don’t jump straight to the replacement option unless it is essential.
Because Caldwell, ID, experiences some intense winters, a time will come when replacing your furnace needs to happen. However, with proper care and regular tune-ups, you can extend the life of your furnace for many years to come.
Here are some signs that your furnace has arrived at a point of no return, and it’s time to consider replacement:
- Warm or cold spots
- Higher humidity
- Dust accumulation
- Visible damage to the unit
- Increasing repairs
- Skyrocketing heating costs
If you’ve noticed only one or maybe two of these symptoms, it doesn’t necessarily mean you need a furnace replacement. At the same time, if every item on this list describes your situation, give TSS Home Comfort a call to discuss your options.
When you’re ready to commit to a new furnace installation, TSS Home Comfort is here to assist you either in your current home or a new build. We’ll make sure to provide you with a system that is the right size and type for your home and family’s needs. Below are the three main types of furnaces we can safely and reliably install in your home.
Electric furnaces tend to be smaller units that are less expensive to install. They take energy from the electricity grid and use ducts, blowers, and vents to distribute warm air evenly throughout your home. It’s worth noting electric furnaces tend to cost more to operate in the long run than other options.
Instead of electricity, a gas furnace gets hooked up to the municipal natural gas line closest to your home. It then uses this fuel source to pass warm air through the furnace before circulating it throughout your house with air ducts. This option isn’t available everywhere, so it’s wise to check if your home has gas utility lines before moving forward.
Oil furnaces are becoming less common as they are usually more expensive to operate and are not as environmentally friendly as gas or electric alternatives. For some homes, though, an oil furnace may be the only option or the most dependable.
