Electric Furnace Repair Services

Even with the most high-quality furnace, you may still need repairs from time to time. Here are some common signs your system needs repairs.

New, odd, or loud noises

It's normal for your furnace to make loud noises when it starts up and a low, steady sound while running. Signs of a malfunctioning furnace include sudden clicking, rattling, rustling, grinding, humming, or banging noises. 

Odors or burning smells

When your furnace starts up at the beginning of the warming season, it’s normal for built-up dust to burn off. This smell should go away after a short while. Foul odors or a burning rubber smell indicate a malfunctioning furnace. 

Frequent short cycling

Short cycling refers to how long your system runs and rests. With short run cycles, your system starts but turns off after a few seconds or runs for a minute or two before shutting off. A short rest cycle refers to how frequently your system starts up again. Short cycling can lead to short circuits and frequent tripped breakers.

Weak airflow

Uneven heating and weak airflow from your vents indicate that your system needs maintenance. It may just need a new air filter or clogged ducts, but it could be a sign of a major issue. 

Cool air

A dirty heat exchanger, furnace burner, or air filter can all cause your furnace to blow cool air.

Higher electricity bills

A sudden spike in electricity bills indicates that something is using more power than normal. If you experience higher heating bills and any of the above issues, call your local professional HVAC technician for electric furnace services.

Electric Furnace Installation and Replacement

When it's time for a replacement or an energy-efficient upgrade, our HVAC technicians can help you evaluate your options and make an informed choice for your home. We install and service all types of heating systems, including heat pumps and electric furnaces.

There are numerous benefits to replacing your furnace, despite the upfront cost, including:

  • Improved energy efficiency for lower heating bills
  • Less frequent need for repair
  • Reliability and peace of mind
  • Add value to your home

An electric furnace replacement is often the cheaper upfront choice and lasts longer than a heat pump. They’re easy to install as long as the ductwork is intact and your system doesn't require additional retrofitting or upgrades.

Heat pumps are slightly more expensive but can heat and cool your home. They use thermodynamics to heat and cool, transferring heat in or out of your home, depending on the season. Because heat pumps provide heating and cooling functions, you only need one piece of equipment rather than two.

The process for installing a heat pump depends on which style you choose. Both ducted and ductless varieties are available, so you can make the switch regardless of whether your home already has ductwork installed. A ducted heat pump hooks up to the air ducts, while a ductless heat pump transfers heat through an exterior wall of your home between its interior and exterior components. Installation is quick and shouldn't take more than a single work session.

Both electric heating systems offer potential energy efficiency and long-term savings. Offset the upfront costs by taking advantage of federal or state government rebates.
