Boulder Furnace Contractors
Many Boulder 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 system. A forced-air 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 machines work in a similar fashion, the main difference being that the heating elements are similar to the electric systems used in blow dryers.
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 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 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 Maintenance
When was the last time an HVAC technician performed an 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 leak. If you smell gas anywhere in your home, then immediately turn off your system, 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 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 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 system 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 schedule, then your system 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.
