Monday, January 8th, 2018

furnace-maintenance-sessionsMost heating systems in the area are gas furnaces, which are inexpensive and easy to keep running. They make a good fit for our warm weather and can provide reliable heat this time of year, when nighttime temperatures take a dip.  Unfortunately, because our weather is so hot most of the year, homeowners tend to focus on their air conditioning systems, leaving their gas furnaces to suffer from slow neglect. Repair issues have a way of cropping up without warning in such scenarios, leaving you scrambling to get the system fixed just when you need it the most.

We can provide timely repairs for your gas furnace when called upon to do so, but we also believe that an ounce of prevention beats a pound of cure. That means that furnace maintenance sessions make a better way of dealing with your heater’s problems than waiting for a breakdown and rushing around. Ideally, you should schedule one once a year, and if it’s been more than 12 months since you last one, now is an excellent time to make an appointment. Here’s a quick look at how it works.

Getting Your Furnace Winter Ready

Tuesday, October 22nd, 2013

As winter approaches and your air conditioner is used less and less frequently, you should begin thinking about the performance of your furnace this heating season. You may find that your furnace is not in the great condition necessary to keep your home comfortable throughout the coldest time of the year. Taking the initiative to get your furnace winter ready is a necessary task if you hope to make it through the winter comfortably and with an efficient, effective heating performance. Call today to learn more. The Hammond, LA heating experts at A-Professional Heating and Air Conditioning can help you determine what must be done to prepare your heater for winter.

Before you fire up your furnace on the first cold night of the year, you should have already run it a little to ensure that everything is functioning properly. After all, the fact that it worked fine at the close of the past winter does not mean that it will start right up again successfully at the beginning of this heating season. You should also take the time to complete a quick visual inspection of your furnace and the supply and return ducts throughout your home. Nothing should be stacked up around your furnace or placed in front of the air ducts. There is a fire risk in storing things around your furnace, and your system will not distribute air effectively and efficiently if it must force that air through your couch.

By far the most important step you can take to get the most out of your heating system, though, is to simply schedule routine heating maintenance with a qualified professional. Only a skilled technician can ensure that your heater is able to handle the demand that you will put on it in the coming months. Do not take any chances. Allow a Hammond, LA furnace maintenance technician the opportunity to inspect and tune up your furnace before winter arrives.

Call A-Professional Heating and Air Conditioning to get the great performance you need from your furnace in Hammond, LA. Do not let it slip into disrepair. Your comfort and the condition of your heating system will be put in jeopardy.
