Furnaces are the hidden heroes of our homes, giving us consistent warmth on cold, wet Portland days and nights. As with most things, furnaces don’t last forever and when it finally gives up the ghost, huddling in your favorite blanket indefinitely isn’t the answer. If your system is over 10 years old and having trouble keeping your home warm, it might be time to have a professional look it over. Jacobs Heating & Air Conditioning has been trusted by Portland-area homeowners since 1952. We install top-quality Carrier® furnace systems guaranteed to run without worry or hassle.
No one likes an emergency. And, for their own mysterious reasons, furnaces tend to give out just when you need them most — often on the coldest day of the year. Taking a proactive approach to your furnace’s health is the best way to avoid an emergency call (and the emergency call prices) to one of Jacobs Heating pros. The simplest thing you can do is regularly change your filter – a simple procedure that has lasting benefits. While the rest of your furnace may be a general mystery to you, there are signs you can look for that mean it is time to call and get your furnace assessed. The issue may be cleared up with basic repairs and maintenance or it might be time to replace your furnace. Regular maintenance helps identify small issues before they become major problems.
Your furnace is one of the biggest energy consumers in your home so efficiency is going to affect your bills. As cold weather sets in, be sure to take a hard look at your monthly energy bills. If rates haven’t risen and you’re paying much more than last year it may be that your furnace needs attention. Newer, well-maintained furnaces perform at peak efficiency level. Older ones usually don’t.
Feeling cold even when the heat is on is a good indicator that you need to take a closer look at your furnace. Turning up the dial is not the answer. It is time to bring in a professional if you find that your furnace is heating unevenly, with rooms in your home registering significantly different temperatures.
Sometimes it is a good idea to go take a look at your furnace and see if there is anything that looks or sounds off. Cracks, corrosion, squeaks, grinding, banging, or never-ending musty smells can be a sign that your furnace needs a Jacobs professional to assess its health.
One size does not fit all when it comes to choosing a new furnace. In fact, simply replacing your old furnace with the exact same size furnace may not even be the best choice. There are three things that your HVAC pro will consider when helping you choose a new heating system.
