Class A Heating and Furnace Repair and Installation

While it’s not exactly the dead of winter anymore, most of us aren’t quite ready to turn our heaters off just yet.  The chill is still in the air, and it’s that time of the year when all we really want to do is get comfortable in the blankets with our loved ones (and maybe even our pets).  When the furnace isn’t working, though, that’s not really possible.

Obviously, that’s not exactly the only reason that maintenance is important, but it does highlight how inconvenient it can be when our heating system malfunctions for one reason or another.  Unfortunately, as you can read about on this page,, it can have other consequences as well.

Now, it’s probably not overly likely that you’re going to end up freezing to death because you don’t have access to warmth.  However, there certainly is still a chance of your HVAC unit acting up somehow or getting fussy because it needs repairs.  At the end of the day, the heat isn’t the only thing that we need to worry about.

Signs of Problems with your HVAC System

Signs of Problems with your HVAC System

Admittedly, if you’re not overly familiar with how these systems work, it can be kind of difficult to notice when there’s a problem happening.  However, there are some telltale signs that you might need a class a heating repair and installation if you know what you’re looking for.  One thing you may want to keep an eye on is the temperature of the air that’s being pushed out of your HVAC.

If it’s cold when it’s supposed to be warm, or warm when it’s supposed to be cold, that could be a sign of an issue.  Obviously, let the system itself warm up for a few moments before you make that determination, especially if it’s the start of the season and you’re just turning it on for the first time since last year.  For prolonged instances of the wrong temperature, though, it may be time to call in a professional.

Another warning sign is if you’re noticing water dripping from anything related to your unit.  Leaks like that are pretty much never a good sign, so it’s a good idea to get them checked out if you notice them.  Finally, take note of any unusual odors or noises – both can be pretty problematic depending on what they’re coming from.

Why Call a Professional?

If you’re not sure about why it’s such a big deal to call in a pro to help with HVAC repairs or installation, that’s fair enough.  The internet seems to be going crazy over DIY (do-it-yourself) projects right now, and there are even people who try to tell you that attempting repairs on your own is a good idea.  Here’s the thing about trying to DIY it up with a heater or air conditioner: it’s not a good idea at all.

While pages like this one will try to convince you that you’re an expert handyman, unfortunately there can be a lot of issues that come with attempting this sort of stuff on such delicate machinery.  Often, it can result in injuries, or with further damage being done to the unit.  Neither is exactly desirable, right?

In these situations, it’s better to just let the professionals handle it.  Contractors know what they’re doing (or at least, they should), and can do these jobs a lot more efficiently and effectively than someone who’s untrained.  While it can hurt the pocket book a little bit, it’s certainly worth it.

After all, what’s worse: paying a bit of an up-front fee for a quick repair or installation, or a huge fee when you have to totally replace the unit or need a trip to the hospital?  Obviously, the latter is the worse situation there.  No one wants to be stuck like that.

So, whether you’re noticing a weird rattling sound, have a bunch of water leaking out of one of the vents, or are starting to smell something musty, it’s probably time to call in a contractor.  Chances are, they’ll be able to schedule something with you pretty quickly, especially if you opt for a small, local option in your area.
