Is a Gas Furnace Safe for My Home?
When looking for a new furnace, you may be hesitant to choose a gas option. What about gas leaks? Is natural gas safe to burn? There is always that chance of any furnace malfunctioning, so it’s best to trust qualified HVAC technicians to perform installation, repair, and regular maintenance. This way, you know that the lines are secure and that the hook ups are done correctly.
The Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute provides a checklist to ensure that your gas furnace is safe and working properly. By having annual cleaning and inspections, and checking over any questionable sounds or issues, you can rest assured knowing that you have made the right decision on a gas furnace. It can also be a good idea to install a carbon monoxide detector, which can alert you of any leaks or potential issues with your furnace.
Benefits of Using a Gas Furnace to Heat Your Space
When choosing a furnace, it’s good to know what they do and how they run. There are various types of furnace options, like electric, oil, or gas, that can heat your home or business for years. With all of the options on the market, why should you choose a gas furnace?
Some benefits of gas furnaces include:
Energy-efficient. New models of gas furnaces come with energy efficiency that cannot be beat. Ask about our energy-efficient Trane® furnaces that have AFUE ratings of 90% and higher.
Long lifespan. Gas furnaces have a lifespan ranging from around 15 to 30 years. This means constant, comfortable heat for upwards of three decades, with proper maintenance from your Childers technicians.
Cleaner fuel. Unlike oil burning furnaces, natural gas releases less emissions into the environment.
Instant heat. Unlike wood or electric furnaces, there’s no warm up time for your gas furnace – and you can feel it.
When it comes time to upgrade your heating system in the Beckley, WV, area, call on Childers Enterprises for gas furnace installation.
Regular Furnace Maintenance to Keep it Running for Longer
Like all heating systems, gas furnaces must undergo routine maintenance to keep them running. The team at Childers Enterprises is here to clean and prepare your gas furnace for the winter. Regular maintenance may include:
- Cleaning filters, vents, and blowers
- Checking the thermostat
- Looking over the flame
- Changing filters
- Checking sensors
- Checking ducts
Remember to schedule a cleaning and maintenance appointment once a year to ensure that your furnace is working properly. By doing so, you can avoid costly repairs in the future by picking up on small problems before they get worse. When purchasing your new furnace, ask your technician about our preventive maintenance agreements. If you have an existing furnace, call us to schedule your appointment.
You may be wondering if you really need a technician to perform maintenance. If it just needs checked over, why can’t you take some time over the weekend to do so? The technicians at Childers have years of experience in handling gas furnaces. Something as simple as igniting the pilot can be difficult without the right tool. You may not notice little issues that can lead to repairs sooner or later.
The Problems Keep Returning. How Can I Know it’s Time for Replacement?
Knowing the right time to replace your furnace can be difficult, especially when you’re not the most HVAC savvy. A quick inspection from an experienced heating technician can help to decide if your furnace just needs a tune up or if it’s time for repairs. If you feel that the furnace is not efficient and isn’t worth the regular repairs, ask us about our installation and financing options. The initial cost of a new gas furnace may seem high, but it’s not much in comparison to needing repairs every few months or going without heat. Not to mention the efficiency of a modern furnace as opposed to models that are over 15 years old.
