They’re inexpensive to install, easy to manage, and do a fine job of keeping Hickory, NC residents warm through the cold months.

When to Call for Furnace Repair

Furnaces will go through their share of wear and tear just like any other heater, and when that time comes, you’ll need some comprehensive maintenance or repairs. We offer both and can assist you when that time comes. Repairs are especially important for gas furnaces, which come with the added risk of carbon monoxide leaks.

Of course, you won’t know to call if you don’t know what to look for. Here’s what to pay attention to:

  • Heating Bill Spikes: Does your heating bill have a sudden spike? Or, maybe it has gradually raised to some unreasonably high rates. This is a classic sign that your heater is struggling to perform and needs attention.
  • Problems with Starting: The igniter in your furnace may be malfunctioning, preventing it from starting. Whatever the reason, continuing to use it is unsafe until you have it inspected.
  • Frequent Cycling: If the heater is turning on and off frequently, it’s doing what’s called short-cycling. This will prevent your home from getting warm, and it will put a lot of stress on the system. There are many causes for it, so don’t hesitate to reach out to a professional.

Electric Vs Gas Furnaces

Looking to replace your heater with a new gas or electric furnace? Deciding between the two can be tricky. While people in Hickory, NC have been using gas furnaces for years without issue, the fact is that not everyone has access to natural gas lines. Electric furnaces burn much more cleanly and may be the better option depending on you and your home. Call up a professional to weigh the benefits and find what works best for you.
