Our Central AC Repair
Outside of not getting cold air from your system, it’s not always obvious when something is wrong with your air conditioner that warrants calling a professional.
However, familiarizing yourself with the following warning signs and calling for help as soon as possible could mean the difference between a minor repair and system replacement.
- Loud noises like squealing, banging, grinding, or buzzing coming from the system during operation.
- The room temperature doesn’t match the reading on the thermostat.
- Sudden rise in your utility bills.
- Inconsistent temperatures throughout the house.
- Uncomfortable humidity levels.
These issues don’t necessarily mean you’ll have to replace your air conditioner, but the longer you wait for repairs, the worse the problem will get.
Gas Log Fireplace Maintenance
Many homeowners opt for a gas fireplace instead of wood because they’re easier to operate, require less maintenance, and are safer.
However, it’s essential to keep your gas fireplace well-maintained for maximum efficiency and to extend its lifespan as long as possible.
Here are the most common issues that signal it’s time to call a professional for maintenance and inspection.
Pilot Light Issues
Your gas fireplace probably has a pilot light similar to your furnace. So, if you have issues like the pilot light won’t stay lit, it’s probably a broken or worn-out thermopile that’s to blame. It could be a wiring issue in severe cases, but regardless of what’s going on, it’s best to call an experienced technician to diagnose the problem.
If you smell rotten eggs or sulfur in the house, it usually means you have a gas leak, which is dangerous. If you suspect a gas leak, evacuate the house and call for help.
Excess soot buildup means your gas fireplace isn’t running correctly. Venting issues or the logs can cause this problem, so call a professional to determine the cause.
Wear & Tear
You may not think of it this way, but your gas log fireplace is a machine like your furnace, and because of that, it needs annual maintenance and tune-ups to ensure it runs efficiently, safely and replaces worn-out parts.
