Many Colorado homeowners choose to install gas furnaces in their home due to their efficiency and affordability. Our HVAC technicians are familiar with the intricacies and components of gas furnaces, allowing them to deliver quick service and lasting repairs. Many homeowners are unfamiliar with how a gas furnace works, so we’ll briefly explain how a typical gas furnace works.
Gas furnaces are often used in conjunction with a forced-air heating system. A forced-air heating system begins with the furnace, which burns a steady source of either natural gas or propane. The heat generated by this process is transferred to the air inside of the furnace, which is then blown throughout your home’s ducts by a fan system. The warm air that is distributed throughout your home displaces the denser cold air inside your home, eventually drawing it back to the furnace to be warmed. It’s important to note that electric furnaces work in a similar fashion, the main difference being that the heating elements are similar to the electric heating systems used in blow dryers.
Furnace Repairs and Installations
While you may not actively notice and appreciate how well your heater normally works during the coldest months of the year, heating is something that is sorely missed when you no longer have it. Living in a cold climate can be unsettling and uncomfortable, even when your heating system is functioning properly! Without a heater, our cold Colorado days can go from uncomfortable to nearly unbearable. What can be even more frustrating is having a heating system in your home, but having to use multiple blankets and space heaters because it’s broken. We’re committed to helping to stay warm through the winter, so be on the lookout for the following signs of a broken heater:
You Can’t Remember the Last Time You Had Furnace Maintenance
When was the last time an HVAC technician performed a furnace inspection in your home? If you can’t remember, or if you can remember and your last inspection was more than a year ago, then you need to schedule a service appointment as soon as possible. Even if there are no major issues with your unit, it’s likely that your furnace’s air filter has become clogged and dusty. Much like your car, it’s important to schedule annual maintenance to prevent an expensive and unexpected problem from occurring.
You Smell Gas
Next to a natural disaster or a burglary, a gas leak is one of the scariest and most serious events that can occur in your home. Gas generally smells like rotten eggs or sulfur and will become stronger as you get closer to your furnace. If you smell gas anywhere in your home, then immediately turn off your furnace, shut off the gas supply valve, and then call our HVAC company for assistance. Even if the problem is not with your furnace, it’s always better to err on the side of caution.
Is your furnace making scraping, thumping, or banging noises? Contemporary heating systems are designed to heat your home as quietly and efficiently as possible. While each of these noises is caused by a different problem, an odd noise is one of the clearest signs that your furnace needs to be repaired.
Your Air Is Cold
Gas leaks and strange noises are troubling, but feeling cold air coming through your vents during the middle of winter can be almost just as troubling. This is most likely an issue with the unit’s pilot light or thermocouple (a component that measures temperature). In any case, these components are complex and will require the attention of a professional HVAC technician.
Your Thermostat Is Acting Up
Your thermostat tells your furnace how much warm air it needs to push throughout your home, so if it’s broken or not working correctly, then you’ll have problems with your heater. One of the most common thermostat problems is that you need to increase the temperature more and more to reach a desired heat level in your home. The issue could be with an electrical component, loose wiring, or a tripped circuit breaker. Don’t take the risk of trying to repair these components yourself, as you could accidentally electrocute yourself in the process.
Your Utility Bill Is Rising
Is your monthly utility bill leaving you (and your bank account) in shock? If your utility bills are significantly higher than normal, or they’re rising every month despite no changes in your normal heating schedule, then your furnace may need to be repaired. The problem could be something as simple as a clogged air filter preventing warm air from circulating efficiently, but it could also be that some of the internal components need to be repaired or replaced. Determining the source of the problem on your own can be difficult, but a trained HVAC technician will be able to quickly diagnose the issue and recommend a solution.
Sometimes there’s nothing particularly wrong with your unit, but it’s approaching 15 to 20 years of age and not working quite as well as it used to. Maybe it takes a while to heat certain rooms of your home, or perhaps it’s breaking down frequently and costing you more money than you’re comfortable spending on HVAC repairs. It can be difficult to know when to repair and when to replace a furnace, but we’ll gladly help you determine the right choice for your home.

Boilers have two main components: an element that heats water before distributing it and a plumbing network to carry the hot water throughout the home. This network of pipes is installed throughout the home and allows the boiling water to radiate warmth through the walls or flooring (this process is also known as radiant heating). Many homeowners choose boiler installations over furnace installations because they’re highly efficient. Water is able to transfer and retain heat much more efficiently than air, and homeowners with boilers will never have to worry about a duct leak compromising their heating during the winter.
As with any heating or air conditioning service, it’s important to choose the right team for the job. If you have selected a boiler as the primary source of power for your heating system, then you’ll need to ensure that the one you have selected is the correct size for the area you want to heat, and that the service provider undertaking the installation is one that will do the job correctly the first time. At Pure Air Solutions, we never cut corners or sacrifice quality to finish the job. When you choose us for your boiler installation, you can rest assured that we’re setting you and your home up for success.
Are you wondering whether a boiler installation is right for your home? If so, then please contact our HVAC company for assistance. We will gladly help you review your options and find the perfect heating system for your home.
While boilers are fantastic heaters, they inevitably require service and repairs. The best way to stay ahead of potential problems is to schedule regular heater maintenance appointments, but some issues can be sudden and unavoidable. Here are some problems to look out for if you have a boiler in your home:
Leaks and Drips
If you notice pools of water forming near your boiler due to a leak or drip, then you should call a heating expert right away for an inspection. The problem might be with your pump seal or pressure valve, which can be easily replaced by a professional from our heating company.
Just like a furnace or air conditioning unit, strange noises coming from your boiler are never a good sign. One of the most common noises is called kettling, which as you might expect, sounds similar to the noise a teakettle makes when it begins to boil. This issue occurs when limescale buildup disrupts the flow of water from the boiler to the pipes, causing it to boil and steam. While contemporary boilers have pressure release systems to prevent them from exploding under pressure, kettling can damage the internal components of your boiler.
Gurgling is another noise you may hear your boiler making at some point. This can be caused by an air buildup or by a blockage in the system. Colorado’s frigid temperatures are known for freezing the pipes inside homes, and a frozen pipe may be the source of the blockage.
If your boiler isn’t heating your home as efficiently as it used to, then you should inspect the pressure gauge to see if there is a problem. A water leak, radiator issues, or a broken pressure relief valve could all be the source of the problem.
If you are experiencing a problem with your boiler, or if you would like to invest in a boiler installation for your home, then just get in touch with Colorado’s Top Rated Local® heating company!
