A common problem homeowners may face with their furnace is when the furnace keeps shutting off early, failing to complete a full heating cycle. 

But the opposite problem can occur as well: a furnace that runs for too long, seeming to never cycle down. This creates a huge energy waste, makes a house to hot, and puts so much strain on the furnace that it will wear down rapidly. If you’ve encountered a “runaway furnace,” you’re right to feel concerned. In most situations, a furnace that’s running for too long will need professional furnace repair in Maumelle, AR.

We’ll look closer into this problem and the reasons it occurs.

Gas-Energy-Flames

Sometimes, people feel edgy about using a natural gas furnace in their home. They might think a gas furnace is an accident waiting to happen, either causing a fire because of uncontrolled combustion or sending toxic carbon monoxide into the house. Although these problems can occur, they’re rare—especially if a furnace receives routine maintenance inspections and tune-ups each year. When we inspect a furnace during maintenance, we check carefully for any potential hazards and then fix them. For older furnaces, we may recommend a replacement.

We want you to feel safe in your home with your furnace, which is why we’ve created this post about the safety features of gas furnaces. You’ll always need annual maintenance, but these features will prevent most possible safety problems so you can enjoy the powerful warmth from your gas furnace in peace.

Monday, February 22nd, 2021
blown-away

The point of getting a heat pump is so that your home can enjoy both heating and cooling from a single system. There is no reason to purchase a heat pump and only use it for one job—that’s a waste of money and potential!

What’s wrong? Does this call for heating repair in Conway, AR?
