Our Furnace Repair Service

Performance Based Heating & Air - Heating Services in Jamestown
Winter is the wrong time to find out that your furnace is failing, which is why you must become aware of the signs that your furnace is failing so you can call an experienced professional for repairs ASAP. Here are a few things to watch for.

  • Ineffective Heating – There are many reasons why your heater isn’t generating the amount of heat you desire; it could be a clogged burner, a dirty air filter, or a faulty thermostat. The quickest way to find out what’s wrong is with a professional diagnosis.
  • Carbon Monoxide Alarms – If your home’s carbon monoxide alarms go off, it’s critical that you shut off your furnace and call a repair technician ASAP. If your furnace’s heat exchanger is cracked, it can leak deadly carbon monoxide into the house, leading to health issues and possible damage to your home.
  • Strange Noises – Another sign that your furnace is failing is if you hear strange noises you’ve not heard before, such as banging, squealing, or grinding.
  • Spike in Utility Bills – If you notice that your monthly heating bills have suddenly spiked, it could be that something is wrong with your furnace. If a furnace malfunctions, it can burn more gas or electricity than usual, which causes your energy bills to go up.
  • Shot Cycling – If the furnace turns on and off frequently, it could be a malfunctioning thermostat or a clogged filter.

If you notice any of the above signs or anything else unusual happening with your furnace, call a professional furnace repair company to fix the problem before it gets worse.

How to Maintain Your Heater

Once autumn rolls around and the leaves begin changing, most people think about the kids being back in school and the upcoming football season. However, you should also think about your furnace or heater too. The last thing you want is for your furnace to give out in the dead of winter, which is why seasonal maintenance is key to ensuring it functions as needed and lasts as long as possible. Here are a few tips to keep your furnace in tip-top shape.

  • Schedule a Furnace Tune-up – Experts recommend that you schedule a tune-up once a year from a professional HVAC contractor. The technician performs various tests to make sure your system is in good working condition. Another benefit of regular tune-ups is that you can find and fix minor issues before they grow out of control.
  • Clean Your Furnace – Take time before the heating season to thoroughly clean your furnace. Brush off dust and dirt from the unit, clean the bottom of the combustion chamber, and clean the fan. Also, check to make sure there are no obstacles blocking the furnace’s air intake vents.
  • Change or Clean the Filter – Experts say that you should clean or change your HVAC filters every 1 to 3 months depending on how dirty your indoor air is. If you don’t change your filters, they can become clogged, which blocks airflow and puts excess wear and tear on the system.
  • Clean Vents & Ducts – Finally, make sure you clean your vents and ducts because blocked vents and ducts make your furnace work harder than it has to, which reduces its lifespan.

Although furnace maintenance is critical for keeping it running efficiently and extending its lifespan, remember that it will eventually fail. All HVAC systems have a lifespan of between 15-20 years, so if yours is getting long in the tooth, start planning now for a replacement.
