Why Won’t the Furnace Evenly Heat My House?

Friday, December 21st, 2018

cold-man-with-thermostatA furnace system must have more than heating power to provide comfort to a house. It also needs to be able to evenly distribute heat around the different rooms connected to the ducts. After all, a furnace without a working air handler to move air from the furnace cabinet and into the ductwork isn’t much good!

One of the more frequent problems homeowners have with a furnace is when the heater creates hot or cold spots around the rooms. The family room may feel stuffy when the thermostat is set at a moderately warm temperature, while one of the upstairs rooms is as warm as an ice-skating rink.

We have many years of experience installing, repairing, and maintaining furnaces in Madera, CA and throughout the Central Valley. We’ve handled numerous repair jobs to fix uneven heating issues. Below are some of the more common causes of this problem we’ve dealt with. You can trust us to have your uneven home heating remedied.

Of these dealers, only the top 2% in the nation are qualified for the President’s Award.

How Long Will My Furnace Filter Last?

Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

air-fliter-cuCalifornia has recently experienced a series of major fires. Thankfully for us in the Central Valley, these fires were in the north and south of the state. But we’re not strangers to these disasters: last summer wildfires scorched more than 1700 acres in Fresno and Mariposa counties. This caused a plunge in air quality for surrounding areas. When this happens, we recommend making an immediate change to the furnace filter on your HVAC cabinet. Otherwise, extra pollutants trapped in the filter will further drop indoor air quality.
