Winter is never the time for a furnace to break. With record lows in the negative digits, a cold home is a dangerous place to be. A furnace should be reliable and able to heat your home even when the weather outside is below zero.
If the weather outside is frightful and your furnace is not working properly, give Ravinia Plumbing, Sewer, Heating and Electric a call. Our service professionals will quickly restore your furnace to working order.
Because furnaces are reliable ways of heating homes and businesses, many buildings throughout the Northbrook area have them. As they get older, heating units can become unreliable and require repair or replacement. Here are a few of the signs that you need a service call.
You should never be able to smell the heating unit working. Any odd odors the heating unit produces can be dangerous and include exhaust from the burner, gas, or CO2, any of which can cause an emergency health situation.
Your monthly energy bill should remain the same based on the local weather. If there are no cold snaps and your monthly energy bill is rising, a heating repair service call will make sure that your heating unit is not the problem. If it is, a tune-up can return it to a higher efficiency.
When the furnace is not producing enough heat to warm your home to a comfortable level, several issues can be occurring. There could be debris on the burner which is causing a smaller flame, the burner may be failing, or there could be a problem with the thermostat. A clogged or dirty air filter can also cause low heating. Our technicians can identify the problem quickly and return the unit to full working order.
When our customers have a problem starting their heating system, it is usually an issue with the thermostat. We can verify the problem and repair it as needed.
When your furnace is causing excess dust in your home, there could be a problem with the burner, and too much soot is being produced. The issue could also be caused by an inefficient heater or leaky ducts.
It seems that when heating units break, it’s never during an ideal time. You don’t have to worry about that, though, because Ravinia Plumbing is available 24/7 for emergency service calls. Our technicians are fast to respond so our customers are able to enjoy a comfortable home.
There is never a good time during the winter to be without a heater. That is why we offer professional heating and HVAC services. You can save on the cost of emergency service calls by joining our Home Care Club maintenance agreement. It is a program designed to help save money on common services such as maintenance and repairs for your HVAC system.
Early in fall is the best time to have your furnace serviced. Annual maintenance is the best way to prolong the life of any heating or cooling appliance. Maintenance does more than just keep your furnace running. It also helps to ensure better indoor air quality and helps to control the cost of heating and cooling your home. When your furnace or HVAC unit is maintained, the filters are clean, so they catch more dust, the system will run more efficiently and burn less fuel, and your home is more comfortable.
All of these additional benefits are wonderful, but annual maintenance also helps your furnace last longer, and that is a huge cost savings over having to replace your furnace prematurely.
