There are ways to check out the problems yourself before you give us a call to come out if you would like to go that route. Sometimes you might have an emergency heating repair in the middle of the night or on the weekend, so we want to give you a few tips that may get you through until we can come out and check it out for you. We have a team of highly qualified technicians that have been trained, certified, and insured so that you can feel confident that you are getting the very best during your home heating repair.

If you have questions about any of them or are looking to get a new one down the road, we can help you find one that will work best for you and meet the needs of your family.
Being cold is one thing, but when your furnace stops working properly, it can be dangerous, especially if you have to leave your pets home all day or if you work from home. We recommend that if your furnace does go out, that you go out and buy a space heater right away to at least hold you over and keep you comfortable.

Common Furnace Problems and Solutions
Not Blowing Enough Heat
Sometimes the problem is that your furnace will turn on, but the air that is coming out of it is not hot. This could be a sign that your air filters need to be changed. When air filters get clogged, the air cannot go through them and there is no way that the heat can get into your home. Making sure that your filters are replaced every 3 months is a very important part of the regular maintenance that you should be doing on your home. This will also be able to improve the indoor air quality that you have inside your home so if you are sensitive to allergens or have a child with asthma, this is an important step. Changing your filters will also help to prevent these kinds of problems and future central heating repairs. If the above hasn’t convinced you yet, changing your filters will also help to keep your energy bills lower as well.
Check Your Thermostat
Before we come out for a heating service and repair, make sure that you check to see if your thermostat is turned to the on position. Sometimes you might miss that the thermostat is turned off and end up calling us to come out for a heating service repair but really have no issue. You should also check to make sure the batteries aren’t dead and then make sure that it works correctly by setting the time and date correctly so that if it is set on a timer, that it is turning on and off at the times you want.
Check The Flame
If you think you need a propane heater repair, the first thing you should do is check to see if the burner light is still lit. If this has gone out for some reason, it will just need to be re-lit. You also want to look around the area of the burner and make sure that it is all clean. You can look at the color of the flames and determine if something is wrong that way. If the flame is blue and they are both evenly burning, they are fine, but if they are burning yellow, it is because your burners need maintenance. This, of course, will only work if you have a gas furnace.
