Winter weather is right around the corner and you have likely already started relying on your heating system to keep you and your family warm. Have you noticed that it simply isn’t keeping up with the demand? Are you wondering if there is a problem? Here are some common reasons why your furnace isn’t working.

#1: Internal components.
Over time and regular use, the furnace system’s motors, belts, and bearings can break. There is an increased chance of these things breaking down if you don’t regularly service your system. The blower motor is one of the main parts of the system that circulates the air into your home, and it can break down easily if not tuned-up annually. If that breaks, warm air cannot be circulated into your home and you will need a furnace repair.

#2: Dirt and dust buildup.
Did you know that most of the breakdowns we see are due to significant dust and dirt buildup? Not changing your furnace filters enough can cause breakdowns and the need for furnace repairs. Dirt air filters will block air flow and cause your system to work harder than necessary. That means the system is not running efficiently and the internal parts are under greater strain. Be sure to change your filters every other month. Another way to avoid dust and dirt buildup is by scheduling annual maintenance appointments. Our trained team of technicians will clean the system internally and ensure that all parts are running efficiently. We will perform a safety inspection and make sure there are no issues that could cause potential problems or breakdowns later.

#3: Gas line.
Sometimes your gas furnace will not run properly if there is an issue getting adequate gas through the gas line. This is something that should only be diagnosed by a natural gas specialist because the potential danger and health risks that come with working with gas. You will need to ensure that the system is shut down completely and that the professional can access your system easily.

heat pump replacement

Weather in the Pacific Northwest gives us a good mix of rain, sun, heat, and snow.  Some months it’s continual rain and other times during those warm months, it’s hot and there seems to be no end in sight. Many homeowners enjoy using their furnaces in the winter to keep them home and are okay with moving in a couple of window air conditioning units when the summer heat gets unbearable. But there is a better solution: a heat pump. A heat pump is a great solution for homeowners looking for both heating and cooling solutions in one system.

What are the differences between air conditioners and heat pumps?
Both of these systems use outdoor and indoor coils to transfer refrigerant. An air conditioning system will absorb heat that passes over the indoor coil in the system. This means that cool air is transferred into the ductwork of your home and the hot air is moved to the outside. Heat pumps on the other hand, will take outside heat for warming your home and then, they cool it by taking the heat out of your home.

If your home currently runs on electric baseboard heating or oil, you’ll see a huge difference in the utility bill if you install a heat pump. The cost of the heat pump will likely pay for itself over time because of the amount of money you’ll save in heating and cooling bills in the coming years. An air conditioner can be an inexpensive solution to cooling your home when it gets hot outside, especially if you live in a smaller space. However, a heat pump can be used to both heat and cool your home, year round! It’s resourceful in how much electricity it uses, making it an environmentally friendly option, too.

Which system is right for you?
Installing a new heating and cooling system for your home is an investment, but it’s one that will be well worth it, adding value to your home and enhancing your quality of life at the same time. If you don’t have ductwork in your home, we can help you with a selection of ductless heat pumps that will fit your home and most importantly, your budget.
