What Types of Furnaces Do We Service?
At our Air Serv we provide service furnaces powered by:
- Heating oil
Aside from variations in fuel type, we also service single-stage, two-stage, and variable speed furnaces from many brands. If you’re not sure which furnace type you have, or its specific needs, our team of HVAC experts are here to help. Our professional teams have years of experience, and we guarantee your furnace will be serviced correctly.
Residential Furnace Repair
A furnace has many working parts, and correctly identifying the issue requires a professional eye. We frequently repair or replace furnaces that:
- Furnace won’t turn on
- Short cycle (furnace turning on and off)
- Furnace is producing heating inconsistencies (cold spots, lack of heat)
- Have clogged filters (needing cleaning or replacement)
- Develop leaks or unusual smells (gas leaks require emergency evacuation and service)
- Experience failing controls or monitors (pilot light is out, thermostat isn’t working)
- Possess faulty parts (slipped belt, worn-out bearings, blower stays on constantly or won’t turn on at all)
In some cases, repair issues may overlap or lead to more dangerous malfunctions. If you notice any of these problems developing, be sure to contact Aire Serv.
The best way to prevent the need for expensive furnace repairs and to extend the life of your heater is by scheduling annual fall furnace maintenance. We offer Total Comfort Tune-Ups for HVAC customers.
Residential Furnace Replacement Service
Though regular furnace service will certainly extend the life of your system, no unit is immune to wear and tear or the aging process.
If you notice that:
- Your unit requires frequent repairs
- Your energy bills are high or increasing
- Your home has trouble maintaining appropriate humidity levels
- You frequently hear unusual or loud noises coming from your unit
- Excessive dust and debris is building up inside your home
Then it may be time to replace your unit. Gas furnaces that are more than 15 years old may have outlived their useful lifespan, whereas an electric furnace will likely last closer to 20 years.
It’s also possible your furnace cannot keep up with the updated needs of your home, and you may need a more properly-sized replacement.
No matter if you want a replacement for your furnace or to explore other modern heating options, including more eco-friendly options like air-source heat pumps and electric furnaces, our service professionals can help you to identify the right solution to your furnace problems.
