Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Why isn’t my furnace working right?
Have you checked the thermostat? Sometimes it’s as simple as an improper setting. If that’s not your issue, check the battery on your thermostat. Dirty filters sometimes cause a problem as well, so be sure to change yours regularly. Did your circuit breaker trip? Have you checked? If your power switch goes, it might be as simple as flicking it back on.
What should I do? My furnace isn’t working right.
Step 1. Did you check to make sure your thermoset is set to the heat position? It’s a basic and quick thing you may have overlooked!
Step 2. Another thing to check is if the furnace switch is set to the on position. You’d be surprised how often this little thing is the culprit.
Step 3. Whoops! Did the circuit breaker trip? Give it a quick check.
Step 4. Is the filter clogged? Dirty filters can cause big issues! Get a new filter and replace it.
Step 5. Is the front panel of the furnace securely closed?
Step 6. Have you checked the gas valve? You want to be certain it’s in “on” position.
Step 7. What about the air ducts? Did you make sure nothing is blocking them?
Step 8. If you went through each step and you’re still stuck, it looks like it’s time to give us a call.
Is there an average timespan that a furnace should last?
The lifespan of a furnace often depends on how well it’s been maintained. When serviced regularly, you’ll see about 15-20 years from a gas furnace, and about 15-25 years from an oil furnace.
Is it more expensive to keep repairing a furnace or to replace it?
You’ll need to consider the age of your furnace and cost of repairs. Here’s what we recommend. We use the $5000 rule. How old is your furnace? Let’s say it’s a 12-year old furnace. Now, how much are the cost of repairs per year. If it runs you about $500 to repair it, you’ll multiple those numbers together. 12x500. The total comes to 6000. If that number is higher than $5000 it’s time to replace it. If it’s lower, than repair it.
Is it expensive to repair a furnace?
This depends on a couple of factors. Keep in mind that the type of furnace you have along with any warranties will alter the price. Also, what parts you will need, along with how labor intensive the job is. An average repair bill runs around $300. That being said, it can vary widely based on circumstances. While it could be anywhere from $100 to $1200, the best average to go by is between $170 to $500.
How many times a year do I need to have my furnace serviced?
We recommend that you service your furnace each year before the cold weather settles in. It’s also important for your manufacturer’s warranty. Did you know that if there’s a problem, they’ll want to see proof that you’ve maintained your unit and had it inspected yearly? The good news is that proper maintenance extends the life of your furnace and makes it run more efficiently.
What’s the cost to replace an AC unit?
When it comes to installing air conditioning, a central AC system will run around $3,700 to over $7,000 on average, based on HomeAdvisor’s estimates. The price may vary some based on where you live, and the type of system you need. One other thing to keep in mind is your air ducts and what kind of condition they’re in. This all comes into play when pricing out a system.
How big of a unit do I need to cool my house?
There’s no one right answer, but a general rule of thumb is about 1 ton of AC for every 500 to 600 square feet. But, what’s important to know is that there are varying factors that go into the equation and that might not be enough in your circumstance. A qualified contractor will look at the types of windows and doors you have, how many of them, what your insulation is like, the height of your ceilings, and even how many people live in your home and the climate you live in. They’ll use a Manual J to get you an estimate, so you’ll know what will work best in your situation.
What’s the life span of an AC unit?
When an air conditioner unit is well maintained, you should see about 12-15 years out of it. A heat pump, about 14 years. It comes down to how it was installed, how well you’ve cared for it, among a few other small details. One thing we’re often asked is about an aging unit. Once it’s past 10 years old, you may want to replace it, rather than repair it.
What’s wrong with my air conditioner? It’s on, but not cooling the house.
We can help you find the answer, but the first thing to do is make sure your temperature settings are correct. Is it set to cool? Is the fan on auto? Are there blocked vents? When it’s not something obvious, it may be a refrigerant leak, or dirty coil, maybe even a frozen evaporator coil. Is the condenser coil dirty? The air filter? Give us a call and we’ll help you figure it out.
How do I stop my AC from leaking water?
Did you know that while there are multiple possible answers, most the time it’s a pretty common solution? Check the drain line and make sure it’s not clogged. If it is, simply take a wet/dry vac with the help of an attachment and clean it. That should help. Also, another neat tip is to use a little bit of vinegar and pour it down the line. What this does is help destroy bacteria and fungus. You can use this tip 2-3 times a year for best results.
Do you need to service an AC unit after it’s installed?
An air conditioning system works best when it’s been well maintained. That means servicing it and getting a tune-up each spring. This helps your system run efficiently. Did you know you can actually lose up to 5% of its peak performance by not maintaining your unit? That goes for your heating system as well, which we suggest getting serviced in the fall. One last thing you can do to help keep your system running smoothly is to make sure you either clean or change out your air filters on a monthly basis.
