Our Furnace Maintenance Service
As summer turns to fall, most Elmore County residents look forward to a little relief from the summer heat; however, once the leaves start turning, it’s not very long before we’re into the thick of winter and all that comes with it.
With temperatures in these parts being so unpredictable, it’s crucial that your furnace performs well to keep your family cozy and safe all winter long.
However, not everyone thinks furnace maintenance is essential, so let’s look at why you shouldn’t overlook this routine but critical task.
Furnace Maintenance Ensures Proper Function
During a routine maintenance and tune-up service call, Chad’s AC Direct’s technicians perform a thorough inspection of your furnace to ensure everything is working properly and to check on any worn-out parts. Our technicians also check to make sure your system is safe.
Furnace Maintenance Ensures Efficiency
When your furnace or heater is operating efficiently, it means it’s using less energy to do its job and is keeping your family more comfortable with less work. The benefit of having an efficient system is that you enjoy greater comfort at less cost.
Furnace Maintenance Extends System Lifespan
Your furnace represents a significant home investment, and it’s one that you should take care of so it lasts as long as possible. Just like taking a car to a mechanic every few thousand miles keeps it running at top form, so too does performing routine maintenance on your furnace. With annual maintenance and tune-ups, you can extend the lifespan of your furnace for many years beyond what is typical.
To find out more about how a furnace maintenance plan or heater tune-up can benefit you, contact one of our expert technicians at Chad’s AC Direct today.
Signs You Need Heating Replacement
During the winter, there’s never a good time for your heater to conk out, especially here in Elmore County where the weather is so unpredictable.
The average lifespan of a heater is between 15-20 years; however, instead of waiting until the system completely fails, get to know the following warning signs that your furnace is getting long in the tooth and plan on replacing it soon.
As mentioned, the average lifespan of a heater or furnace is between 15 and 20 years, so if your system is approaching the end of its useful life, plan on replacing it soon before it fails.
Rising Energy Bills
It’s typical for a furnace to lose efficiency as it gets older, which translates to higher energy bills. If you find that your heating bill is going up or if it suddenly spikes, it could be that your furnace is on its last legs.
Unusually Loud Noises
If your furnace develops strange, loud noises you’ve not heard before, such as rattling, humming, squealing, or grinding, call a professional HVAC technician to diagnose the problem. It could be something simple like a loose part, or it could be that the system is past its prime.
A furnace that is cracked or otherwise damaged is a health and safety risk you can’t afford to ignore. If you notice any signs of physical damage, replace the heater now.
If you’re not sure whether it’s time to replace your furnace or if you can get by with another repair, call one of our expert HVAC technicians for an inspection and consultation.

When to Call for 24-Hour Heating Repair
It’s true that not every furnace or heater problem warrants a call for emergency repair; however, there are situations where waiting isn’t an option. Here are a few problems you don’t want to ignore.
If you’re experiencing electrical issues like blown fuses, tripped breakers, or flickering lights when your system is running, they’re potentially dangerous situations and require professional repairs ASAP.
Another potentially hazardous situation is if you smell gas in the house. A natural gas leak isn’t something you ever want to ignore because of the health and safety implications. If you smell gas, get out of the house and call a heating repair company right away.
The last thing to consider is the length of time you’ll have to wait if you were to schedule an appointment. If your heating issue develops in the early morning, you can usually wait for a repair technician to show up later that day. However, if the problem happens at the beginning of a long weekend or holiday, it’s best not to wait and to call for help right away.
