Signs You Need Repair
We understand that detecting furnace issues can be a bit difficult for the untrained eye. Therefore if you notice any of the following issues give us a call:

Dave’s is here to help you detect issues quickly so that our experts can come out and assist you before your furnace breaks down completely or becomes faulty during the coldest months.
Natural gas furnaces are built and tested to operate for years. However, regular furnace servicing, cleaning and tuning are crucial to ensuring that your furnace functions at peak efficiency and has a long life expectancy.
Ignoring standard furnace maintenance might result in higher utility bills and less comfort. It forces the components to work harder, resulting in shorter life expectancies. In certain situations, it might even result in a complete shutdown or system failure.
In general, most people can manage basic air filter cleaning or replacing on their own. However, to prevent larger issues from developing, we recommend signing up for Dave’s Club.
Dave’s Club offer several different HVAC maintenance plans based on your needs and circumstances.
During a routine maintenance call, customers can expect Dave’s technician’s to evaluate your furnace’s performance in various modes of operation.
We then perform a number of cleaning and inspection tasks according to ACCA guidelines.
A few things we do for example:
- Inspect, Clean, or Replace Filter
- Inspect thermostat
- Inspect and clean the burner, crossover and igniter in the combustion changer
- Inspect and adjust the gas valve
- Inspect, clean and tune the pilot light system
- Clean the heat exchanger while inspecting for cracks, holes and leaks
- Inspect for burned wires or high temperature problems
- Inspect the fuel pipe and ductwork for cracks, holes, debris and other issues
- Inspect for leaks in fuel supply components
Repair or Replacement?
A yearly furnace tune-up may improve efficiency and extend the life of your home heating system. However, a simple maintenance call might reveal a problem that will need a significant investment to repair.
Then it’s time to choose.
Do you want to spend lots of money on an expensive heating tune-up in order to keep using your current heating system?
You might also ask, “Should I upgrade or update?”
Sometimes the cost of fixing your current system is so high that it might make sense to invest in a furnace replacement.
There is no simple solution, but if a repair would cost roughly 50% of the cost of a new furnace, it’s might be better to replace it. If the current system has not already received multiple costly repairs, is in good working order and issues can be pinpointed and easily fixed, then keeping your existing system might make sense.
Either way, Dave’s is committed to providing you with the best information and facts to help you make the right decision for you!
