Furnace Repair and Installation Services in Livonia
If you use a furnace as your heating source, it is vital that it operates at its best. In the winter months, you don’t want to go a day without dependable heat. This is not only uncomfortable, but it also isn’t safe. Your furnace should provide consistent heat throughout your entire home or business. It should also be operating efficiently to ensure you aren’t overspending to have the heat source you need. At Birmingham Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling, we can provide full-service support for your furnace. Our highly-trained technicians can provide routine maintenance, reliable repairs, or complete installation of new furnace systems.
Your furnace is a complex system. You have the furnace itself, as well as the power source and the air duct system. When problems start to occur, it can be difficult to pinpoint what the true cause is. This is why turning to a professional can make the process faster, easier, and guess-free.
Common Furnace Concerns
There are several different factors you can look for when determining if you require repair. An obvious sign would be the inability to get your furnace to start. This could be due to the age of the furnace, a pilot light issue, a wiring issue, or other concerns. The last thing you want is to be left in the cold on a winter day in Michigan.
You may notice that your furnace is cycling more than it should. The cycling process controls the overall heat produced by the furnace. It turns on to provide enough heat to regain the current temperature. If there is an issue with the internal temperature gauge, your system may operate more than necessary. This drastically lowers efficiency and leads to higher monthly heating bills.
Other warning signs to watch for include:
- Strange noises. Banging or clanging are often unusual sounds you may hear.
- Pilot light color. Your pilot light should remain blue. Yellow can indicate that gas isn’t being burned off. A weak or wavy flame can indicate there is too much gas and not enough ventilation.
- If you notice the smell of gas or something burning coming from your furnace, it is important to contact us immediately to determine the cause of the problem.
Should I Repair or Replace My Furnace?
Your furnace is a big investment. At Birmingham Plumbing, Heating, and Cooling, we want to protect that investment. We will always be open and honest when providing you feedback concerning your system. If your furnace is relatively new, we will most likely go ahead with whatever service you need to have your system operating efficiently again. However, if your system is older, usually 10 years or more, we may suggest installing a new system. New systems tend to be more energy-efficient, which can save you money in the long run.
