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!

Sometimes, however, your heat pump might end up wasting its potential all on its own. You set the thermostat to provide the house with a comfortable warm temperature on a cool day, and the heat pump turns on, you can hear the blower fan and feel the air coming from the vents … except the air from the vents is either room temperature air or cool air. What’s wrong? Does this call for heating repair in Conway, AR?

Be Wary of These Gas Furnace Sounds

Monday, December 14th, 2020

Although furnaces are built to run quieter than ever, there’s no way to completely eliminate the sounds of the blower fans and the gas burners. In fact, people often take comfort in these gentle noises as a simple part of the soundscape of the winter. Maybe not as comforting as the crackle of the fire in a hearth, but something similar. 

Then there are the odd sounds that gas furnaces can make—ones that aren’t cozy. They may be loud, sudden, or just strange, but they’re often the way your gas furnace warns you that’s something wrong that may require calling professionals. (And you absolutely must have professionals when it comes to repair services for your furnace in Conway, AR. Amateur work on a gas furnace can create safety hazards, and in many jurisdictions only certified technicians are legally permitted to do the job.)
