Are You Losing Money from a Failing Heater?

Monday, March 23rd, 2020

Heaters aren’t built to fail, in fact, quite the opposite is true. Heaters like gas furnaces, especially the models that we offer, are built to sustain extremely cold temperatures while providing enough hot air to keep your home warm for years to come. The problem we see with failing heaters is not because they were built in a faulty way, but because they were subsequently neglected.

Heating in Chesapeake, VA shouldn’t be a difficult subject to approach. Either your heater works and it works well, or it doesn’t and needs to be serviced by a professional. This holds especially true if you’re finding your heating bill slowly rising as we’ll get into down below.

It’s imperative that if anything doesn’t seem right with your heater, that you let our team know immediately. We’ve got the equipment and technical expertise with such systems to make sure you don’t have to deal with a lack of heat for the foreseeable future.

Signs You Could Use a Furnace Replacement

Monday, December 30th, 2019

No, we’re not just talking about replacing your furnace for fun. Furnaces have a set lifespan that they really aren’t supposed to keep working past. If your system is 20 years old or older, you could be plagued with high fuel bills, inefficiency, poor home heating quality, and even safety concerns.

We like talking about replacements because there’s a constant misconception with heating systems that you should use it until it breaks down on its absolute last day. However, what homeowners don’t like to think about is that furnaces are not people. We don’t want to keep them around as long as we can, because soon they start doing more harm than good. A family that uses a gas furnace, constantly paying for furnace repair in Chesapeake, VA 10 years longer than they should be, means a higher net cost that can sometimes be too much to handle.

Don’t ruin your budget with a heater that’s barely working. Get a replacement today.
