When a Furnace Fix Is a Big Deal

Monday, February 12th, 2024

The term “big deal” means different things to different people. Some people think that a miscalibrated thermostat is a big deal that warrants addressing immediately. While others might think that a furnace problem isn’t much of a big deal at all, especially as we near the end of winter.

Separating furnace repairs in Tallahassee, FL into two categories (big deals and small issues) could be an excellent way to figure out whether you need an emergency response now, or if you can wait until the temperatures warm up to get your system fixed.

Just make sure you work with our team of licensed and insured professionals to diagnose your problems, regardless of whether they’re big or small deals.

Why Is My Furnace Dripping?

Monday, February 13th, 2023

Combustion of gas into warmth sounds like a simple process when we’re describing what a furnace does. But combustion is far from simple! Burning gas releases a whole lot of different chemicals into the air, from carbon monoxide to carbon dioxide, and even water vapor. These chemicals are then sent out of your port exhaust so you don’t have to deal with them anymore, but sometimes there can be a hiccup in the system.

With some of our recently cold days, we’ve depended more and more on our furnaces. It’s understandable if you found a puddle under your system and immediately thought to call for furnace repair in Tallahassee, FL.

Monday, March 1st, 2021

Many homeowners in our area have gas-powered furnaces in their households to keep their families warm. A furnace is an excellent choice—it’s powerful and cost-effective. Today’s models even have a higher efficiency rating than just a decade ago, with the highest AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating for a gas furnace being 98%. Trust us when we say that’s an efficient heater!

But in addition to efficiency, you want to be able to rely on safety when it comes to your heating system. That’s not to say that gas-powered furnaces are inherently dangerous. But if you don’t properly care for yours, it can become dangerous.

The most common cause of an unsafe furnace—particularly an aging one—is a cracked heat exchanger. Even if you don’t have a problem with a heat exchanger, if your furnace is 15+ years old, it’s time to start looking into an upgrade. We’ll dive more into the “why” of this below.
