When to Call a Professional for Furnace Repairs or Maintenance

When your heater malfunctions, it can leave your home chilly and uncomfortable. There are a variety of factors that may cause your heating system to stop working. While some of these may be simple fixes, such as a clogged filter or a tripped circuit breaker, other issues may require the entire unit to be replaced. In general, it is a good idea to do a cost-benefit analysis when deciding whether to repair or replace your system.

Furthermore, if there are problems that could threaten the safety of your home, such as a broken heat exchanger (that could send carbon monoxide into your home), you should replace the system. Simple repairs are best for minor issues in a fairly new system that is still in good condition. If your system is older, has a major problem, or has been displaying signs of wear and tear, a replacement can provide many benefits.

We can handle any and all furnace issues, including:
  • Dirty or clogged air filters
  • Pilot control issues
  • Faulty thermostats
  • Cycling between on and off modes
  • Blower switch problems
  • Rumbling or squeaking noises

Determining if Repair or Replacement is the Best Option

There are certain parts that are worth repairing and certain reasons that will help you determine whether it’s most cost efficient to repair or replace the furnace at your Boston or Cambridge area home.

You should repair your furnace for:
  • Minor Faulty Electrical Issues: Issues related to fuses and ignition modules.
  • Condensate removal pump: Only about 5% of the cost of the entire system.
  • Pressure and temperature sensors: About 10% of the cost of the entire system.
You should replace your furnace if the following are broken:
  • Compressor: If it’s not under warranty, it will be a very costly repair. You will be looking at 50 to 75 percent of the cost of the entire replacement. If you’re going to replace this critical component of the system, it does not guarantee that the other components will not fail within a short period of time.
  • Cracked heat exchanger: Similar to the compressor, this is a very costly repair. It will not guarantee your system from operating sufficiently since the other parts in the system will most likely fail and need to be replaced as well.

The golden rule when doing a replacement is to opt for a newer, more energy-efficient unit. We can help you choose the most energy-efficient and reliable furnace without breaking the bank. Additionally, our team offers regular maintenance to catch potential issues early and lengthen the life of your heating equipment.

Benefits of Regular Furnace Maintenance

You take your car for regular maintenance to make sure you won’t experience any issues while you drive it on the road. You should do the same for your furnace. Maintenance helps ensure your system will not breakdown in the middle of the winter. It also keeps every component of your furnace working as it should. If there are small issues, maintenance can catch and address them early on.

Other benefits of furnace maintenance in Boston include:
  • Keeps the manufacturer’s warranty intact
  • Extends equipment life
  • Improves energy efficiency
  • Lowers energy consumption

Furnace Maintenance Tips

Checking up on your furnace regularly will save you a great deal of money in the long run, and it’ll save you from ending up with a major headache.
  • Replace your filter annually.
  • Switch your thermostat from cooling to heating. It might seem obvious but sometimes in a panic, people forget. If you have the Nest thermostat, there are an step-by-step instructions online to troubleshoot the issue.
  • Oil the furnace blower at least once per year so all the heating system components are in solid condition. The purpose of the furnace blower is to bring heat from the furnace into the home. Make sure that the furnace blower is lubricated to extend the life of the furnace and avoid the need for premature replacement.
  • Check the HVAC vents to make sure there is enough air flow. Consider how often you move furniture throughout the year or the number of parties and guests you’ve had—furniture is going to get moved around. You want to make sure that absolutely nothing is blocking the air vents. This can also lead to overheated furniture.
  • Tune up your heating system since it hasn’t been active for several months. By having a yearly furnace tune up, expert technicians can make an accurate assessment and then get to work on repairs.

Whether it’s been a while since you’ve had maintenance or your furnace has never received maintenance since you purchased it, the time to schedule an appointment is now. Our Boston furnace tune up experts pay close attention to every detail while inspecting your system. We will also provide you with a full report of our findings including any small repairs necessary to ensure a highly efficient and reliable furnace. Our goal is to keep your furnace working when you need it most!
