Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
What makes a furnace stop working properly?
Did you know that something as simple as a dirty filter can cause big problems? It’s true! Be sure to replace your filters to avoid issues. Another thing you’ll want to doublecheck is if your thermostat is either on the wrong setting or check to see if your battery died. It seems easy to overlook but knowing the cause of these issues can save you a headache. Also, double check to make sure the circuit breaker didn’t trip.
My furnace stopped working. Are there steps I can check?
Step 1. Did you check the thermostat to make sure it’s that it’s turned to “heat”?
Step 2. Make sure you check that your furnace switch is set to the “on” position.
Step 3. Have you looked to see if the circuit breaker for the furnace might have tripped?
Step 4. When was the last time you checked the furnace filter? Could it be clogged? It might be time to replace it with a new filter.
Step 5. Be sure to secure the front panel of the furnace if it came loose.
Step 6. Have you checked if the gas valve is set to the “on” position?
Step 7. What about the air ducts? Are they blocked at all?
Step 8. It’s time to call a professional. Let us help you out.
When do I have to replace a furnace? What’s the lifespan?
If you’ve got an oil furnace, you’ll see about 15-25 years of life out of it when it’s properly maintained. As for a gas furnace, with proper maintenance you’ll see about 15-20 years from it.
Should I repair my furnace? Or just replace it?
When it comes to repairing your furnace, we recommend making the choice based on pricing. How can you tell if it’s time to replace it? The best way to consider this is to look at how frequent the repairs are. Then, you do a calculation. The $5000 rule means this… consider how old your furnace is. If it’s 12 years old, and the repair costs $500, you multiple that. 12 x 500 = which comes out to 6000. If the price is over $5000, it makes sense to replace it. If the cost is under, repair it. So, if that were 3 x 500 = 1500, we’d say repair.
What’s the average cost to repair a furnace?
The average repair cost is about $300, but it can swing widely from $100 to $1200. Though, most of our customers repairs run about $170 to $500. Now, this depends on warranties, the type of furnace that you have, along with things like how much labor is needed and parts.
How often should I service my furnace?
You’ll want to service your furnace once a year. Usually, you do it right before it gets cold. The good news is that this helps both prolong the life of your unit, along with making it more efficient. Another thing to keep in mind is that your warranty depends on you maintaining the unit and getting it inspected. They’ll want proof that you’ve held up your end, should something go wrong with the furnace.
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.

With Maryland being a mid-Atlantic state, there are a couple things to keep in mind when it comes to weather. First, while our spring and fall are quite comfortable, summer and winter can hold a few surprises.
Summer is known for being sticky, hot, and humid. Being alongside water means you can cool off at times, but the excess moisture can play havoc on your walls or untreated wood. Make sure your air conditioning system is in good working order, to help prevent damage.
As for winters, we’d suggest you seal up any cracks to help with drafts. It’s known to get blustery and cold come winter, and we do see a fair amount of snowfall, with most of it coming between January and February. A smart way to tackle the cold is make sure your heating system is well maintained. Your heat pump should get serviced or a tune-up regularly. Don’t forget to check out your furnace and AC when you’re scheduling appointments for service.
