Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why would my furnace stop working?
If you have a dirty filter, it can cause all sorts of problems. A quick check of your filter can save you a big headache. Another thing to look at is your thermostat. Is it set to on properly? Is the battery still good? One last worth checking is the circuit breaker. Could it have tripped?
My furnace isn’t working. What should I do first?
Step 1. Before anything, first check to make sure your thermostat is in the correct “on” position for heat.
Step 2. Once you’ve done that, you’ll want to also make sure your furnace switch is also “on” and didn’t get knocked off accidentally.
Step 3. Be sure to check your circuit breaker. It may have been tripped.
Step 4. A clogged filter can cause issues. Be sure that your filter isn’t dirty and ready for a replacement.
Step 5. There’s a panel on the front of your furnace. Make sure it’s securely closed shut.
Step 6. Is the gas valve set to the “on” position?
Step 7. Are your air ducts blocked? Have you checked them yet?
Step 8. If you’ve gone through each of these steps and it’s still not working, it’s time to call a professional.
How many years should a furnace last?
This depends on the type of furnace you have. A gas furnace tends to last about 15-20 years when maintained properly. If you have an oil furnace, the lifespan is a bit longer at 15-25 years when it’s been properly serviced and maintained. Keep in mind that a well-maintained unit will last longer for you.
Should I repair or replace my furnace?
This is a question we get a lot. First, consider how old your furnace is. With a simple equation, you can determine if you should repair or replace your furnace. Say your furnace is 12 years old…we’re going to go by a rule called the $5000 rule.
You take the age of your furnace (in this case, we’re using 12 as an example) and multiple it by the cost and frequency of repairs. If your average cost of repair is $500, you’d do 12 x 500 = which equals $6000. With the $5000 rule, if the figure is over $5000, it’s time to replace it. Under $5000, repair it. So, say in that same scenario, your furnace is 3 years old. 3 x 500 = 1500. In this instance, you’d repair.
Can you tell me how much money it costs to repair a furnace?
It depends on what you need done, but averaged out, it ends up being just about $300. Most of our customer’s repairs range from $170-500. Now, this is simply an average, and it could range from $100-1200 just the same. It’s going to depend on the type of furnace you have, what parts are needed, how much labor is involved, and if you have a warranty.
When should you have your furnace serviced?
We recommend that you service your furnace at least once a year. Most people do it before the cold weather kicks in. On a side note, did you know that furnace manufacturers recommend yearly inspections and maintenance? Many of them require proof of prior maintenance for warranty claims! The good news is that a clean and well-maintained furnace will save you money on utility costs and prolongs its life.
What does it cost to install central air?
When it comes to installing a new air conditioning system, prices range between $3,700 and $7,000, based on information found on HomeAdvisor. It’s pretty typical when installing central air to wonder about the cost, and while that’s accurate, there are other things you need to keep in mind such as the condition of your air ducts, where you live, and what type of system you need.
How many square feet will a 2-ton AC cool?
Often what’s quoted is a general rule of thumb. You’ll see things like 1 ton of AC for 500-600 square feet, but you’ll want to keep in mind the number of windows and doors you have, along with the ceiling height, how many people live there, and more. What’s the climate like? It can be complicated to factor it all in, but a well-trained HVAC contractor can use a Manual J to help you find the right answer for your home.
Should I replace my 15-year old air conditioner?
Installation and maintenance play an important role in the lifespan of your unit. A well-maintained air conditioning system should last you about 12-15 years, while a heat pump should see about 14 years. When it comes to aging units, once your system is over 10 years old, you may want to consider replacing it over repairing it, so you have a more efficient unit.
Why my AC temperature is not going down?
Good question. When it comes to air conditioners not working properly, there are a lot of different things that can cause the problem. For example, it could be a dirty condenser coil or even a frozen evaporator coil. There may be a refrigerant leak, blocked vents, faulty wiring and more. Be sure to check your settings, such as temperature setting, and making sure your unit is set to cool, and your fan on auto.
My air conditioner is leaking. Now what?
Did you know that a clogged condensate line can cause that problem? Here’s what you can do. Get a wet/dry vac and with the right attachment, clean the line. This may solve your problem. Oh, and one more thing, 2-3 times a year, pour a small amount of vinegar down the line to help keep it free from bacteria and fungus.
When should I tune-up my air conditioner?
Servicing your air conditioning system is the best way to keep it running smoothly and at peak performance. You’ll want to make sure to not only service it, but change out or clean your air filters monthly, as well. A tune-up ensures your system is working efficiently and is that it’s properly maintained. Lastly, we suggest doing this in the spring, just as we suggest you servicing your heating system come fall.

If you’re looking for something to do in Parkville, Maryland, you’ll want to keep some of these favorites in mind. If you’ve got kids, check out Monster Mini Golf as a good family activity. Then head over to Weber’s Cider Mill Farm where you can pick your own fruit or enjoy some baked goodies and produce waiting for you at the farm’s market. Maybe you’re looking for a quieter weekend. With that in mind, consider heading over to the Willow Grove Nature Education Center, take a quick trip to the Vita Revive- Organic Wellness & Spa for some downtime, and when you’re ready to grab a bite to eat be sure to stop by McFaul’s Ironhorse Tavern.
With its close proximity to water, consider that the weather will play a part in how you’ll want to take care of your HVAC units. With cold, windy months and a mix of snow, it’s important to make sure your furnace and heat pump are in good shape before winter hits. Be sure to get them serviced early.
The other consideration is that come summer, the weather is a bit sticky. Humid days often mix with sunshine, and while we all love the fun of summer and outdoor activities, what we don’t like is when it’s humid inside our homes. And you especially want to avoid the damage too much moisture can do to your home.
Make sure your central air conditioning unit is running smoothly when hotter days roll around. Whether you need repairs, a new installation, or a tune-up, don’t forget to give us a call for all your HVAC needs.
