Why Is My Furnace Blowing Cool Air?

Monday, January 21st, 2019

cold-coupleFurnaces, like any other whole-house heating system, need to be sized, installed, and serviced by trained professionals. They are complex in that regard, but they’re also pretty straightforward in terms of actual operation. Basically, they generate heat, they use that heat to warm up air, and then they force that air throughout the house via ductwork in your home. See? Simple. You know what is even simpler, though?

Which Furnace Is Right for Me?

Monday, December 10th, 2018

furnaceHeating your home is an important priority, even if you live in an area where you are not fighting against subzero temperatures and heavy snowfall. Even here in Missouri, where the heat and humidity of the summer season definitely outshine the cold of winter, you are going to need your heater to get you through the season comfortably. If you are in the market for a new heater or you suspect you’ll be looking for a replacement come spring, then chances are that you’ve been giving the furnace some attention.

Furnaces are the most popular home heating systems, and it is not really hard to understand why. They can share existing ductwork with central air conditioners, they’re easier to install than a boiler, and they offer prompt and efficient heating. Just remember that deciding to use a furnace is really only the first step. You’ll still need to decide which furnace is best for you. Not only can we handle your installation, maintenance, and furnace repair in Chesterfield, MO, but we’ll also make sure that you have the perfect furnace for your needs.

Don’t Let a Dirty Furnace Filter Cause Trouble

Monday, October 29th, 2018

filter

Modern heating systems, when professionally installed and serviced, are incredibly reliable. That does not mean that they’re 100% reliable,  though, or that any heater ever can be. If you encounter a salesman or service technician telling you otherwise, we recommend that you reconsider doing business with that individual. Just because no heater is 100% reliable, however, doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t take every precaution in order to keep yours as reliable as possible. That’s where changing the filter comes in.

It may not sound like that big of a deal, but a dirty air filter can actually lead to a lot of different issues with your furnace. In fact, it can even lead to issues requiring furnace repair in St. Charles, MO. The good news is that changing your filter is really simple, and the filters themselves cost very little. For some reason, unfortunately, many homeowners still fail to keep fresh filters in place. By the time you’ve read this post, we think you’ll understand why that’s such a bad idea.
