Is Your Powellhurst Furnace Not Working Today?

Your home heating system has to work hard, so troubles do happen every so often.

And these issues never come up at a good time.

Technician working on a after-hours emergency callWhen your heat has quit working, and the temperature in your Multnomah County house is gradually getting colder, all you want to do is have it fixed. And if it happens in December or January, you will be hoping to get it repaired sooner rather than later.

We Can Make Emergency Appointments in SE Portland

Repair shops that concentrate on critical HVAC repairs (like we do) prioritize their scheduled repair calls.

We usually go on service calls to property owners who have a non-working furnace before we go on a strictly preventative maintenance appointment.

Southeast Portland heating repair companies do not get many calls in the nice, warm days of Summer. Most building owners call only when their systems aren’t running. And these problems only occur during the cold months when the property owners have their heat on.

So repair shops face appointment scheduling issues because lots of people all call at the same time. When this occurs, all repair shops try and do their best to satisfy each of the callers who need help, but many callers will end up needing to wait around a little while for service.

Some HVAC repair guys cannot handle a big spike in seasonal repair requests. Some smaller shops simply don’t have the people needed to handle the surge in phone calls or to schedule an appointment after normal business hours or even on the weekends.

What Will a Service Call Cost Me?

Most heating service visits result in the replacement of one troublesome part or a single adjustment.

Be prepared. Not all systems can be repaired. The vast majority can be fixed, but it doesn’t make sense to keep spending money into trying to keep a seriously old unit running.

Most standard fixes are not too costly. But because it takes a few hours of a technician’s time in order to drive over and finish the work, the charge is never really cheap. However, most property owners do not consider the final bill to be unreasonable.

Save With a Service Maintenance Program

Getting into a service contract with a heating company can help cut down on the number of unexpected repairs.

If you arrange to have a technician clean and check out your HVAC system once a year, you are very likely to have a system that lasts longer than a property owner who doesn’t spend any time or effort on maintenance.

Planned maintenance visits are ordinarily performed in the Summer or early Fall. During those sessions, your technician will thoroughly inspect your whole HVAC system. They will deliver a thorough cleaning and let you know the overall condition of it.

We allow ample time for these sessions, so you have time to ask questions. Your technician will try to answer any question you have.

During this visit, if your technician spots a worn or damaged part or other trouble, they may recommend you fix it while he is right there, and not procrastinate so they have to come back another time in the near future.

Naturally, even though you try to keep up on your preventive maintenance, a part can still fail or break, so even a well-maintained system might require a sudden repair when you aren’t anticipating it. An annual service plan will minimize unplanned repairs, but may not get rid of them completely.

What Kind of Problems Are the Most Common?

Any part of a home heating system could potentially wear out, but the majority of calls come up due to a situation with a modest group of overall issues.

These usual issues are related to the thermostat, the electronic ignition or pilot, or one mechanical part that has simply stopped working.
