Heating System FAQs

Why is there water leaking from my furnace?2022-08-15T13:53:54-07:00

Condensation of water is a normal occurrence for many heating systems. But if the drain line or filters are clogged this can result in a problem. Call us for service, especially if you’ve skipped annual maintenance that includes new filters and humidifier pads.

When should I replace my old heating system?2022-08-15T13:54:17-07:00

Don’t wait too long, that’s for sure. It’s not good to be in an emergency state of mind, in the middle of winter, rushing the decision. There are a lot of things to consider these days, so it’s best to have time to evaluate and plan. If the unit is older than 15 years, and you’ve already had a few repair issues, we recommend replacing it.

What size or type of heating system do I need?2022-08-15T13:54:10-07:00

This requires a calculation that factors in the square footage of your house, climate, type of windows, insulation and your energy/environmental concerns. It’s an easy enough task for a trained professional and is often part of any free estimate.

Is it cheaper to replace my heater and AC at the same time?2022-08-15T13:53:59-07:00

Yes, replacing your air conditioning and/or adding indoor air quality products during a furnace installation will save you considerable money on labor and trip charges.

How often should I replace my furnace filter?2022-08-15T13:53:47-07:00

Standard one-inch filters should be replaced every month while the system is in use. If your heater uses four-inch thick cartridges or HEPA filters, then once or twice a season is sufficient. Keep in mind that if you smoke indoors, have pets, high traffic carpeted areas or live in a dusty climate, you should replace them more often.

How much does a new heating system cost?2022-08-15T13:54:04-07:00

This always depends on the size of your home or office building and the type of unit (furnace, heat pump, mini split, etc.). Large whole house systems typically start around $3000, while ductless heaters start much lower. Take a look at our promotions to see if you can save some money.
