Ignoring your furnace will only lead to costly consequences down the line. Routinely scheduled maintenance is much more affordable than replacing a cracked heat exchanger or dealing with worn-out ball bearings. There are a plethora of problems that can arise with your furnace, all of which can be easily avoided with the help of an expert. Give us a call and we’ll run some furnace maintenance options by you until we find the right fit.
Take a look at what our seasonal furnace maintenance covers:
This is your friendly reminder to prepare for the fast-approaching Winter weather with a quick and easy heater tune-up. It’s never a bad idea to have one of our technicians inspect your heater even if it isn’t malfunctioning or damaged. The reason? A quick tune-up can drastically increase your heater’s performance and the comfort of your home. Heater repair costs can quickly pile-up if they’re left alone for long stretches of time, so consider a quick heater tune-up and keep your costs low with a seasonal visit from a Torch technician.
Look no further – Torch covers a lot of ground. If you live in or around any of these areas, then we can give you a hand with your HVAC repair needs:
Are you unsure whether you should repair your furnace or replace the entire system? Don’t make the diagnosis on your own – give Torch a call and talk to one of our licensed technicians about your best options. A general rule of thumb to help you decide between furnace repair and furnace replacement comes down to cost. If the repair is going to cost over forty percent of your furnace system’s overall value, then it makes sense to replace the system, especially because other unforeseen issues can arise.
For example, if you need to pump out condensate, fix small electrical issues, or repair pressure and temperature sensors, then a simple repair will do the trick. On the flip side, if your compressor or heat exchanger needs to be repaired, then it’s worth considering replacing the entire system because those repairs can cost up to seventy-five percent of your system’s total value. Do yourself a favor and make sure you consult an expert before moving forward with a full-blown furnace replacement.
Have you considered a heat pump for your home’s HVAC needs? Heat Pumps are fantastic for homes that face a wide range of temperatures throughout the year. Functioning like a conventional air conditioner, heat pumps use a substance called refrigerant to heat up or cool down your home. Standard furnaces only generate warmth while heat pumps bring heat energy from outside into your home. With a simple reverse valve, your newly installed heat pump can provide you with cool airflow in the summer, and warm airflow during the winter, maximizing your comfort regardless of the season.
Our professional heat pump technicians are trained to quickly troubleshoot your problem. If you have a heat pump that works inconsistently, or not at all, we can give you a quick diagnosis and a flat-rate solution. In the event that your heat pump is beyond repair, our knowledgeable technicians can suggest a replacement that’s right for you. We’ll keep your needs and budget in mind when making our recommendation. And we’ll get the job done quickly so you can enjoy a cozy home as soon as possible.
While heat pumps generally work well for homes with central air systems, you don’t need ductwork to enjoy the benefits of a heat pump. However, if you do decide to go with a ductless mini-split, you should know that you’ll need individual units for each room or space that needs a heating and cooling treatment. It’s common for our customers to supplement their currently installed HVAC system with ductless mini-splits because they can reach more remote parts of the home, like basements, attics, garages, and new additions.
