AirCare Shreveport – A Furnace Repair Company Near You
Your heater or furnace may break down or stop functioning properly for a variety of reasons. AirCare has trained professionals who ready to help you to get warm again.
Here are a few of the most common reasons why a furnace needs repair:
Dirty Filter Furnaces and Air Conditioning Systems include filtration that keeps dirty air and debris from getting into your home. If that filter becomes dirty or clogged, your furnace has to work harder to circulate the air. It becomes less effective in heating your home.
Mechanical Wear and Tear Heating and cooling systems break down over time. For your furnace, this regular wear and tear could mean a less efficient operation, and in some cases overheating of the machinery.
Ignition or Pilot Control Issues Most modern furnaces use an electric ignition or intermittent pilot control. Without having an ignition source, a gas heating system cannot safely ignite.
Malfunctioning Thermostat Thermostats allow for control of a home’s temperature. If the thermostat that you use to control the heat your furnace produces malfunctions, you’ll lose the ability to heat your home in the way you want.
Limit Switch Issues Your limit switch makes sure that the heat is circulating in your home. If it fails, the furnace will not heat your home correctly, and can in some cases overheat.
Repair vs. Replace: What Do You Need?
A number of factors play into the question of whether your furnace needs to be repaired or replace. The severity of the problem, of course, is one.
The age of your furnace also plays into the equation. Generally speaking, furnaces that are less than 10 years old can probably be repaired at a lower cost than the replacement alternative. The expected life span of a furnace is 15-20 years, after which it will begin to fail more often. When that starts to occur, replacement may be your best option.
Each repair should fix your furnace for a few years at a time. If you start needing repairs more often, it’s time to start thinking about a replacement.
The Cost of Furnace Repair
Naturally, the average cost of any furnace repair depends largely on the individual issues at hand. Our technicians will provide every customer with upfront pricing, and an honest diagnosis of your heating issues.
Because dirt is the most common issue for your furnace problems, you can reduce the cost of repair and need for a potential replacement with regular maintenance.
