Ensuring a Successful Furnace Installation

The furnace installation process is very demanding, and only an experienced technician is able to ensure the success of the project. Even prior to the furnace installation itself, important decisions must be made. For instance, you must determine what type of furnace you will use to heat your home. Most homeowners choose between an electric or a natural gas in our area.

Both fuel types have their pros and cons. Natural gas is very popular due to the fact that it is less expensive to purchase than electricity. However, this does not automatically mean that your natural gas furnace will operate more efficiently than an electric furnace. Efficiency ratings must be considered as well, as a very efficient electric furnace will make up for the cost of electricity by requiring less energy to warm your home. Also, while natural gas is conveniently piped into houses for use, it also requires some proximity to a natural gas main. If you do not have existing hookups or if natural gas is not readily available in your area, an electric furnace may be the way to go. A professional furnace installation technician will help you make your decision with confidence.

It is also extremely important that your furnace fits your home properly. A thorough heat load calculation must be completed to ensure that your furnace is the right size for your house. An undersized furnace will struggle to heat your home, running constantly and operating inefficiently. Of course, an oversized furnace is not better. Temperatures may be brought up too quickly, resulting in the short cycling of your system which can, in turn, result in unnecessary wear and tear or even damages over time. For a successful furnace installation, size really does matter. Call Henson Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning for the help you need to find the best furnace for your home.

FurnaceWhen to Consider a Furnace Replacement

No furnace will last forever, no matter how well made. At some point furnace replacement is going to be necessary. If you have a very old furnace with frequent repair and maintenance needs, it may make more sense economically to replace your system. The initial costs of doing so may be offset by the amount of money you save in service needs. Plus, older furnaces often cannot compete with the energy efficiency ratings that are expected of today’s furnaces. In order to get the best, most efficient performance possible from your furnace, allow the furnace replacement experts at Henson Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning to help you find the perfect replacement furnace for your needs.

Modern technology allows furnaces to operate more efficiently and reliably than ever before. Technology, though, is far from creating a furnace that can be guaranteed to operate 100% problem free. Perhaps someday we will have the luxury of investing in a furnace and never having to give it a second thought. Until that day arrives, though, count yourself lucky that you have furnace repair and maintenance professionals at Henson Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning to call whenever something goes wrong with your furnace. Whatever make or model your furnace is, our skilled technicians can help to ensure that you get the great heating performance you deserve. When you notice that your furnace is acting odd or has broken down completely, contact us immediately for truly exceptional furnace repair and maintenance.

When to Schedule Furnace Repair

While the winter season here in Georgia may not be quite as intense as in other parts of the country, it can still get pretty chilly sometimes. You need to know that your furnace is prepared to handle any job you ask of it when the cold weather arrives. That is why you cannot afford to ignore any furnace repair needs you may have. The longer you force your furnace to operate in compromised condition, the more likely it becomes that you are going to do serious damage to your heating system. Pay attention to your furnace, and make sure that any warning signs that furnace repair is necessary are taken seriously. No matter how minor you may think a problem with your furnace is, ignoring it will only lead to a more serious repairs.

If you find that your furnace is making strange sounds or even giving off strange odors during operation, you must schedule professional furnace repair right away. Such issues may not seem like that big of a deal, but they may be harbingers of much more serious problems developing with your furnace. Any grinding or squeaking sounds may the result of a damaged fan or motor, and odd smells may result from biological pollutants in your air ducts or even a gas leak. You need a professional furnace repair technician to determine the exact cause of the problem.

Another sign that it is time to schedule professional furnace repair is if your heating costs rise unexpectedly and inexplicably. Obviously your heating costs will go up in colder weather or when your furnace is in heavier use. If you do not really alter your heating habits, though, then there is really no reason for this to happen. A problem requiring serious furnace repair services may be to blame.

Finally, a drop in indoor air quality should also set off your alarms that furnace repair may be needed. While a clogged air filter could lead to higher concentrations of airborne pollutants, the problem may also result from damaged air ducts in your heating system.

Why Schedule Furnace Maintenance

Everyone wants to keep their furnace as efficient, reliable and effective as possible. Despite this, many homeowners still fail to grasp just how necessary scheduling routine furnace maintenance is to achieving this goal. Giving a professional furnace maintenance technician the opportunity to inspect and tune up your system is one of the most important steps you can take in your effort to keep it operating properly. Problems can be discovered and resolved before any real damages are done. To schedule a maintenance visit today, call Henson Mechanical Heating & Air Conditioning today!
