Your heater has been doing a great job of keeping you warm over the years. You make sure you take good care of this system so that it can help take care of your comfort needs, even on some of the coldest days here in Utah. But things may be a little tight than normal and you wonder to yourself, “Do I really need to take care of that repair need right now? Can’t I put it off for a bit?”

While not every repair needs to be addressed the moment you catch it, it is never a good idea to put the repair off for longer than necessary. This is because timely repairs and regular maintenance can often be the biggest factors in preventing you from having to get an early replacement for your heating system.

Why Is My Furnace Making That Noise?

Monday, December 16th, 2019

If your furnace is running well but you hesitate to turn it on because of the racket that it causes, there is a problem. Your furnace is unlikely to ever be silent, but that doesn’t mean that it should be making noises that imitate noises you’d hear in a haunted house.

If your home has had the opposite of silent nights lately because you’ve been running your furnace heater, you may want to consider calling in a service technician to check things. We suggest this because, aside from those noises being annoying, they are a sign that something needs fixing within your furnace heating system.

If you are unsure whether the sounds you’ve been hearing are being caused by a furnace on the fritz, then allow us to offer you some clarity.

Orem can get cold. Really cold. And as great as it is to snuggle up with a cozy sweater, a fuzzy blanket, and a hot drink, these things won’t always be enough to truly keep you warm. Thank goodness for the wonderful invention that is the heater!

If, however, the sheer cost of using it has become a concern, keeping warm can be seen as a bit of a double-edged sword. You can choose comfort at a high cost, or you can keep your bills low and shiver all day long.

We want you to know that you should be able to choose both options. Staying warm and enjoying reasonable heating bills shouldn’t be exclusive events. If you are treating them like they are, we have some tips that will help keep you warm and financially happy this winter.

You’ve fought it long and hard but you don’t have a choice…you’ve GOT to turn on the heater! It is way too cold in the house and your kids can’t feel their toes anymore. You turn to the thermostat and get all the settings in place and you hear your system kick on. Warmth and relief are on their way!

Or are they? After a delay, you can hear the system running (noisily you might add) but there is no warm air! In fact, your vents are emitting cool air which is making things worse!

This situation is incredibly frustrating but thankfully we know the reason for this occurrence…and we know the solution for it too!

Take Care of Lingering Furnace Repairs Now

Monday, October 21st, 2019

A malfunctioning heater may not seem like a big deal until it becomes apparent that it is. Yes, having inconsistent or nonexistent heat is annoying and can become dangerous for children or elderly individuals, but this doesn’t compare to the danger of a carbon monoxide leak or the potential for an explosion.

Yes, that escalated quickly, but we wanted to make sure we got the point across that putting off furnace repairs really isn’t the best of ideas.

While explosions are thankfully somewhat few and far between, ignoring the need for repairs does raise the risk that you will be faced with cold days filled with sporadic bursts of heat or no heat at all.

Not sure if you need repairs? Read on to find out what you should be looking for!

Yes, You Do Need a Duct Cleaning

Monday, October 7th, 2019

You might be saying to yourself, “Why should I clean my ducts? Air blows through them all the time, doesn’t that keep them clean?”

The answer to that question would actually be, “No, it gets them dirtier!”

The idea of cleaning your ductwork might seem a little silly but we promise its necessary. Not only does dirty ductwork hinder your heater’s ability to do its job, but it also affects your indoor air quality (IAQ).

Scheduling a visit from a professional HVAC technician who can give your ductwork a good scrub can help your home on multiple levels. Make sure you reach out to our team about a duct cleaning in Orem, UT sooner rather than later.

To discover why keeping your ducts clean can impact your IAQ, read on.
