Does Your Spokane Furnace Need Repair?
Heating systems work hard. Problems happen.
Unfortunately, when they stop working, it never seems to be at a very convenient time.
When your furnace isn’t working like it should, and the temperature in your Eastern Washington home is slowly going down, all you really want to do is get it fixed. And if it happens during the coldest days of Winter, you want to get it fixed sooner rather than later.
Get Some Help Fast
HVAC repair shops specialize in emergency service. They prioritize their repair calls.
If you have a non-working furnace, you get expedited treatment over other routine service calls. They schedule critical service visits before they go on any purely preventive maintenance appointment.
Spokane WA furnace repair services don’t get too many calls during the Summer months. Most homeowners only call when they have a problem.
And those problems almost always happen during the Winter months. Unfortunately, most homeowners get their furnace problems at the same time their neighbors gets theirs — it’s usually during that first real cold spell in October or November.
And when lots of homeowners all need service at the exact same time, it causes scheduling problems. Some callers might have to wait for a while before a technician can show up at their door.
Not all HVAC repair companies can handle a spike in calls. Some of the smaller shops simply don’t have the extra repairmen to handle the increase in calls or to schedule many home visits during the evening or on weekends.
What Does a Service Call Cost?
Most furnace repair visits result in the replacement of one troublesome part or a single adjustment.
But each visit calls for a technician to drive out to see the homeowner and their heating system.
The technician needs to spend some time checking out the entire heating system, doing a thorough cleaning, replacing defective parts and making sure that the unit is operating as well as it can.
Most repair visits do not add up to a high bill, but they aren’t cheap either. Simply put, you are asking a technician to drive out to your house and work for an hour or two. As your service van drives away, most homeowners find the final cost to be reasonable.
What About Service Maintenance Agreements?
Getting into an annual service maintenance agreement should cut down on emergency repair visits. For starters, having someone check and clean your system once a year will help keep your system working better and lasting longer.
During a scheduled visit, which usually takes place in the Summer or early Fall, your technician will carefully inspect your entire system. He will clean it and let you know about the overall condition of it. He will inspect your furnace filter and let you know whether you are changing them often enough.
If your technician spots a worn part or has any other concern, he may recommend you get it taken care of while he is already there, rather than waiting for another time.
A scheduled maintenance program should cut down on unexpected repairs, but it certainly can’t eliminate all of them. A part can still unexpectedly break or fail, even on a well-maintained system.
What Are the Typical Trouble Spots?
There are quite a few different areas where a heating system might fail, but the bulk of service calls end up addressing one of a small group of issues.
That issue is usually with either the thermostat, the electric ignition, the pilot, or a mechanical part that has simply worn out or stopped working.
