Furnace and Heating Repair In Minneapolis

What Types of Heating and Furnace Services Do We Offer?

Furnace Maintenance

You should have your furnace inspected at least once a year, sometimes two, to keep it running efficiently. All the heating and electrical components should be tested, adjusted, repaired or replaced as needed. The furnace should also be thoroughly cleaned and lubricated to prevent the premature wearing down of parts. Any normal furnace repair projects can happen when doing routine maintenance to keep it up and running.

Heating Repair

How Can I Save Money on My Heating Bill?

You should develop a holistic approach to save money on your heating bill. This means not only looking at how you can upgrade or adjust your heating system but also taking into account other measures you can take to control your energy usage.

  1. Dress Properly. Keep in mind, it is the winter time, and dressing like it’s the middle of summer requires you to keep your home hotter than it needs to be on cold days – and that takes a lot of energy to accomplish. You should get used to wearing sweaters and other types of warm clothes around the house in the winter, so you don’t have to turn the heat up high. Comforters and throw blankets on couches and chairs that you can use to cover yourself while watching TV or reading a book can keep you warm. 
  2. Insulate. Windows, doors, attics, and unused vents should be closed and insulated to prevent the airflow of cold air into your home. Upgrading to energy-efficient windows will help, but if that is not possible, using store bought window plastic effectively reduces drafts. Heavy drapes are also good at reducing drafts at night.
  3. Use Ceiling Fans. This may seem counterintuitive, but heat rises and stays near the ceiling until the room is warm. Using the clockwise setting on your ceiling fan forces the heat down from the ceiling and reduces the energy needed to heat a room.
  4. Keep the Bathroom Fan Off. The fan in the bathroom is designed to remove humidity from the bathroom to the outside. However, it also will remove the heat in the bathroom while drawing in colder air. 
  5. Regularly Replace Filters. Clogged and dirty air filters inhibit air movement and cause your furnace or HVAC system to work harder than intended to move air into it. The result is that more energy is used to produce less heat, and the equipment is not working efficiently.

What Type of Furnace Is Best for My Home? 

You want to purchase a furnace that produces the amount of heat you need to warm your home comfortably.  The best way to figure out the size you’ll need is by adding up the total square feet of space to be heated and finding a furnace that generates enough British Thermal Units (BTUs) to produce enough heat to warm that sized space. A smaller furnace will work too hard and stay on too long. A furnace with too much capacity will turn on and off too quickly. This will cause the furnace’s parts to wear down prematurely, which can result in a shorter lifespan. 

How Long Do Furnaces Last?

A furnace can last from 15 to 20 years, assuming it has been well maintained and serviced. Typically, homeowners should start thinking about a new furnace at the 15 year point for its eventual replacement. This gives you time to research the latest energy-efficient furnaces on the market and save money for purchase and installation. 

When Should the Furnace Be Replaced? 

Furnaces should be replaced when it shows signs of aging or has reached 15 years of age. The signs of aging include:

  • Uneven heat throughout the house
  • Dust, soot, and particles coming out of the heating vents
  • Hard to control humidity levels in the home
  • The furnace has developed cracks and rust

When Should I Change the Air Filters? 

Filters should be changed every few months in the Minneapolis area. They should be inspected after heavy wind storms to ensure that haven’t become clogged with dirt and dust.
