Furnace Service in Skokie, IL

Here in Skokie, keeping your furnace running efficiently is an essential part of surviving the winter cold. Granted, you can get by with just a functional furnace.

Furnace Repairs in Skokie

A faulty furnace can be more than just a mild inconvenience. While it may be unpleasant to wake up to a chilly home on a brisk winter morning, an extra layer of clothing will keep you cozy while waiting for repairs. But like any heating device, electric and gas furnaces can fail in far more dangerous ways, which is why it’s imperative to have a professional inspect your system whenever you notice an issue.

That said, today’s furnaces are safer than those at any other time in history. And with regular maintenance and repairs, dangerous failures, like fires and gas leaks, are significantly less common. But if you notice any of the following issues, give us a call so we can solve the problem before it has time to get worse:

  • Strange smells coming from your vents (especially rotten eggs, chemicals, or smoke)
  • Strange noises coming from vents (whistling, clicking, banging…)
  • Cold air or a lack of warm air coming from vents
  • A furnace that won’t turn on, or one that runs constantly
  • A pilot light that won’t ignite or won’t hold a flame
  • Any other abnormalities you notice about your furnace, vents, or heat

The advanced safety features of modern furnaces have made these devices safer than ever before. In fact, home fires are almost 3x less common today than they were 40 years ago. Now, that doesn’t mean you can ignore chemical smells coming off your furnace. But it does mean that if you properly maintain your system and call for help when needed, you should have nothing to worry about.

Furnace Replacement in Skokie, IL

No matter how well you care for your furnace, a replacement will be necessary at some point. A well-maintained model should keep you warm for 15 – 20 years. On the other hand, homeowners who overlook furnace upkeep should plan on replacing their heating system after about 10 years.

If you’ve been having furnace trouble and your system is more than a decade old, it may be time to consider a replacement. Even if repairs are possible, a new furnace may make more financial sense. New furnaces are roughly 15% more efficient than models from yesteryear, meaning you’ll save 15% on your heating bills with a new model.

So in the long run, paying to repair an aging furnace might end up costing you more money than replacing it. Still, we always recommend diagnosing the problem before committing to a new furnace. Once we’ve discovered the problem, we’ll help you understand what’s gone wrong and what your options are for repairs or a replacement furnace.
