Maintenance Helps Prevent Repairs
Gas furnace systems are complex. They require regular maintenance that includes lubricating moving parts, cleaning components, tightening connections, and testing electrical systems. Failure to stay on top of maintenance increases the likelihood that components will fail.
Neglected systems will deliver diminished performance and require more extensive and expensive repairs. Thus, we strongly recommend investing in reliable maintenance plans that make it easy to stay on top of maintenance and keep repair bills to a minimum.

Frequently Asked Questions About Gas Furnaces
Should I repair an older gas furnace, or should I replace it?
It depends. Most gas furnace systems will provide around 20 years of reliable operation. If it is around that age, or if the cost of repairs exceeds 50% of the replacement cost, we recommend replacement rather than repair.
What happens if the furnace is too small for my home?
If your furnace is too small, it will struggle to keep up with your demands. This increases wear and tear, leads to increasingly frequent repairs, and results in premature system failure. If you’re concerned your furnace is too small, we can perform a comprehensive load calculation to determine the appropriately sized furnace for your home.
Why can't heat exchangers be repaired?
Once cracked, there is always the possibility of carbon monoxide leaks. Plus, inspecting and repairing the heat exchanger would cost more than replacing the component.
