As a heating repair company, we understand that is not easy to know whether you should do any heating repairs or replace your home’s heating and cooling system, especially if you’re facing an emergency situation. While there’s no hard-and-fast rule, there are some important considerations to keep in mind as you make your decision.
Age of your system – The lifespan of a furnace is between 15 to 20 years. If your system is under those years, expect more repairs in the future (unless the model of your furnace is obsolete).
Obsolete technology – New products are coming out every day, so technology is changing on a daily basis and this is as true for your cell phone as for your heating and cooling system. By replacing your old furnace you will be able to take advantage of more efficient/quiet equipment, energy savings that can drastically reduce the cost of your utility bills and our special discounts on all new installations. Call for details.
Cost of repairs – A good rule of thumb is that you should replace your system when the cost of the furnace repair is more than 50 percent of the cost of a new one.

Furnace Cleaning and tune up
The furnace is one of the most neglected parts of any heating and cooling system. Most of us only focus on getting either cold or hot air out of it, and we only think about repairing our heating and cooling system when we don’t get either one. Providing a tune-up every year will give you peace of mind that your system will work when you need it and that you and your loved ones will be breathing high-quality air throughout your house every day. Call us today to schedule an appointment and avoid costly repairs in the future.
The National Fire Protection Association warns that heating systems are the second leading cause of home fires, deaths, and injuries in the United States. The NFPA offers these safety guidelines.
- Install heating appliances according to manufacturers’ instructions or have a professional do the installation.
- Fuel-burning equipment needs to vent to the outside.
- Never use an oven to heat a home.
- Keep anything that can burn away from heating equipment, including portable space heaters.
- Clean and inspect heating appliances regularly.
- Turn off portable heaters when leaving the room or going to bed.

Commercial heating units can heat a greenhouse. They can heat a detached garage. They can heat a manufacturing facility. They can even heat a large man cave – all without the expensive ductwork or costly installation that comes with standard furnaces.
In the simplest of terms, unit heaters are boxes that provide heat via natural gas or propane. A propeller fan supplies airflow over a heat exchanger that blows into the space you want to be heated. They are efficient and compact – a lot of heat in a small box — but depending on the application, they can approach 400,000 BTUs.
A major benefit of unit heaters is that they come without the installation cost of a standard gas furnace, which must be anchored to the floor and require relatively extensive ventilation. Unit heaters are literally hung from a wall or ceiling and require a single horizontal or vertical ventilation tube as an outlet for combustion byproducts and flue gases. Some popular models operate at about 80 percent, so there’s no condensate to collect and a single-wall vent is all that’s needed. The heaters must be installed by a certified HVAC contractor, but once a voltage line is run to a thermostat, it’s done and ready for use.
The low installation cost and savings are augmented by their efficiency. The standard unit heater, heating indoor air, is at least 80 percent efficient, but some models are up to 97 percent efficient. Some basic calculations, including square footage and heat loss, must be performed to determine the best unit and BTUs for any chosen application, but their use can indeed range from a garage to a large warehouse or manufacturing facility. The latter applications typically involve a series of heaters to provide redundancies in a commercial setting.
