Is a Furnace a Good Choice in Your Home?

Decades ago, any heating system that ran on natural gas came along with some risks. The potential for gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning is no longer much of a concern in today’s heating systems, especially if you schedule regular maintenance inspections each year. Furnaces are a great choice for nearly any home with a set of ducts in place, but they’re not necessarily right for every home. Consult a technician at MVP Electric, Heating & Cooling if you’d like to make sure a new furnace is a good choice or to get quality service for your current unit.

We Provide Furnace Repair and Maintenance

Stay on the lookout for anything that seems unusual with your heating system. Does the temperature in the room seem to fall short of what’s displayed on the thermostat? Do you hear odd noises when the system kicks on? Does the unit run too frequently and shut off too soon? All of these are potentially dangerous problems which should receive attention quickly. Our exceptional furnace repair service can help resolve your heating issues when you need it.

We also recommend scheduling maintenance every month in order to ward off repair needs, extend the life of your system, and lower your monthly bills. A yearly maintenance visit includes some minor adjustments, cleaning of parts, and a full inspection so that you can learn of any trouble early on and schedule repairs. This tune-up can lower your energy bills, reducing the additional strain on the unit, and preventing the need for repairs over the heating season.

Electric Furnace

An electric furnace is a safe alternative to a gas furnace, often perfect for those without any access to a natural gas line. These units have sometimes been known to last longer than gas models, although the cost from month to month may be higher. Check with a professional to find out if an electric furnace is right for you.

Gas Furnace

A gas furnace is the first choice for many homeowners, especially since today’s models are highly efficient. Whether you need installation or repairs, or if it’s time for an annual maintenance visit, ours is the number to call in Kansas City, MO for quality furnace service.

Electric Furnace Services

An electric furnace serves as an ideal alternative to the natural gas furnace. While natural gas furnaces are far more common, they are not the best system for every home. If your home cannot be modified to accommodate a gas line for your home heating use, an electric furnace is the next best thing. In fact, some homeowners prefer an electric model because they are considered to be safer and they require less maintenance through the years.

Electric Furnace Installation and Replacement

Installing a new electric furnace is always a job for a professional. Any electric furnace installation involves thorough knowledge of the HVAC industry, a selection of tools and equipment, and some careful calculations. If the furnace is too large, it will consume a lot of energy, and if it is too small, it can never fully heat up your home, and may become overworked too soon. Technicians work to prevent these possibilities and make sure it is installed with accuracy.

And a professional can also help you to pick out the most efficient system available to your home. As a general rule, electricity is more costly than natural gas. This means that an electric heater will cost more to run. However, today’s models are more efficient than they were in the past. Electric furnaces carry high AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) ratings and generally need fewer repairs than gas models. A technician can help you find a system that may cost less to run and maintain than you would expect.

Electric Furnace Maintenance and Repair

Electric furnaces are fairly low maintenance, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t call on a technician for annual service. A routine maintenance visit keeps everything in top shape and allows your unit to run at peak efficiency. Technicians can also detect whether your unit is in need of repair so that you can schedule services sooner rather than later, when a sudden breakdown leaves you without any heat at all.

Look out for any signs that you need electric furnace repair, including cooler temperatures and noisy operation. Don’t put off calling for repair for too long. In most cases, it costs more to repair or replace a broken down unit than one that is still running to some degree.

Electric furnace repair and maintenance helps keep your unit running smoothly, but only if you schedule service with a trained professional. Many heating professionals are inexperienced with electric furnaces, but our NATE–certified have experience with both gas and electric units. Count on our team for quality electric furnace installation, repair, or maintenance in Kansas City, MO.

Gas Furnace Services

The gas furnace is the most common type of heating system installed in the United States. Modern systems are highly efficient and the cost of installation is less than with other whole-home heating units as long as you have a good set of ducts in place. And today’s units are some of the safest gas heating systems around.

Gas Furnace Installation and Replacement

Long ago, there was some concern over whether gas furnace installation was safe. Along with a gas heating system comes the potential for gas leaks or even carbon monoxide poisoning, but this is highly unlikely with modern units. Modern gas heating systems contain many safety switches which make gas leaks nearly impossible in some cases. Furthermore, ventilation systems and heat exchangers are tightly sealed so that carbon monoxide cannot get into your home. Unfortunately, this is never a guarantee, which is why you should select professionals for installation and regular maintenance.

Gas furnace installation is an ideal choice for home heating. And while there are many different systems you can choose from for gas furnace replacement, we often recommend installing a similar high–efficiency unit. These units are more reliable than they’ve ever been, and gas furnaces cost little to run from month to month. And since your home is already set up for this type of unit, gas furnace replacement should not require any time–consuming renovations.

Gas Furnace Repair and Maintenance

A gas furnace can only run properly if you schedule repairs as soon as you notice a problem. Gas furnace repair becomes necessary when temperatures drop, the unit short cycles, operation becomes noisy, or if you notice anything unusual from the system. And our NATE–certified technicians are best suited for the job, as they’ve been through years of training and thorough testing to earn their certifications.

Maintaining your gas furnace is just as important as scheduling prompt repairs. First, you should make sure to change the furnace filter regularly or clean it according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Equally as important is scheduling regular gas furnace maintenance visits from a member of our trained staff. Our technicians will clean and adjust parts that could cause trouble if they are not in top shape. And they will also inspect the unit and keep you informed if anything seems off.
