Do you use a gas furnace in Denver, CO for your home heating? You’re one of many: natural gas furnaces are the most common way to provide central heating to homes in the area thanks to their powerful output, reliability, and cost-effective operation.

Furnace systems are not simple pieces of equipment. They involve a number of complex components, and when servicing something as complex as this, you’ll need to be one of two things—either an experienced professional HVAC contractor or a vigilant homeowner. Chances are, you’re the latter—a vigilant homeowner should do their research to know when their heater is trouble so they can call for professional repairs ASAP.

We do think it’s possible, however, to know the signs that something is wrong with your furnace. And the sooner you discover a sign of trouble, the sooner you can give us a call to have the repair need taken care of.

If not, now is a perfect time! We always recommend early fall for scheduling heating maintenance. The reason for this is because it’s right before you need your heating system the most. Additionally, it’s when HVAC technicians are a lot less likely to be out on emergency calls and other service calls.

But honestly, when we are talking about maintenance, consistency is what’s really vital. Consistent tune-ups will help ensure that your heating system works as effectively and efficiently as possible for as long as possible, so that you know your heater is always ready to do its job when you need it.

Read on as we uncover why this heating service is so important!

How Healthy Is Your Indoor Air?

Monday, September 21st, 2020

Were you aware that the air within your household can be lower quality than the air outdoors? At least, this is the case if your home isn’t equipped with the right indoor air quality systems and services. It’s even more likely that your air quality is bad if you have a modern home–one built in the last couple of decades or so. The reason being homes today are built very “tightly” to prevent conditioned air from escaping.

This is good news for your HVAC efficiency since there won’t be any heating or cooling loss. Unfortunately, this traps contaminants inside. If you suffer from allergies or asthma, or if anyone in your home does, this definitely isn’t great news. Things like pollen, dirt, dust, and pet dander don’t have a way out of your home, and this is what contributes to the poor air quality. So, what can you do about it?

It may be time for you to consider a ductless system!

Ductless systems are comprised of a single outdoor unit connected to up to four air handlers that can be controlled independently of each other. They’re highly efficient and a great option for homeowners looking for a system that provides effective cooling and efficient heating.

However, if not installed correctly, you could run into a few unique repair needs, such as:

If you’re considering replacing your air conditioner, you have a number of considerations to make. We understand you may be in a rush to get this job done since our variable weather means that just because our temps were in the 60’s and low 70’s last week doesn’t mean they won’t be in the 80’s or even higher in several weeks from now!

We urge you not to make any hasty decisions, no matter how rushed you feel during this process, to not make any hasty decisions. Installing the wrong air conditioner, investing in amateur installation, or not properly sizing your new cooling system can all result in detrimental consequences for your wallet.
