Reasons You’re Getting Cold Spots When the Heater Is Running

Monday, December 19th, 2022

When your home’s central heating system comes on in the winter, you expect it to heat the home. And, under normal circumstances, that’s what it will do: send warmth around the rooms through a ventilation system so you enjoy an even spread of comfort all throughout the house. 

There will be a few temperature fluctuations in rooms that are difficult to avoid, such as places that have less insulation or rooms higher in the house that may get a bit warmer from rising heat. But you can still expect an effective heating system to provide a generally even distribution of warmth.

Except that now you’re discovering cold spots in your house when the heater is running. That’s not right, and we’re here to help you find out why so you can solve the problem with the proper heating repair or basic troubleshooting.

Can a Gas Furnace Become Dangerous?

Monday, March 8th, 2021

This is a question people often ask when they’re considering installing a gas furnace or if they already have one but have noticed odd behavior from it. We understand why people might have worries: natural gas combustion creates carbon monoxide (CO), a colorless, odorless, and highly toxic gas. Any use of natural gas in a home has some possibility of creating either CO or fire hazards. 

This is much different than saying a gas furnace is a “dangerous” appliance. We want to assure you that if you use a gas furnace in Conway, AR for your home comfort, you aren’t in serious danger from the furnace provided you take care of standard upkeep on it. This means annual heating maintenance from professionals and always calling promptly for repairs when something seems wrong with the furnace. 

The short version: Yes, a gas furnace can become dangerous, but it’s easy to keep it running safely.
