To achieve maximum comfort, the earlier you check your heating system the better. Do you need a furnace tune-up, or is it time for a new one? Ambassador Dearie HVAC can help you make that decision.

Winter’s arrival may catch some people off guard

A tune-up will ensure your furnace runs smoothly all winter long. An annual maintenance check will help detect potential problems, and fix them so your furnace doesn’t stop working on cold winter days when you need it the most.

You may decide it is time to replace your old unit. Ambassador Dearie HVAC has some helpful advice on the most important things you should consider before you invest in a new furnace.

First, when heating your home, size matters. An Ambassador Dearie representative takes into account the square feet of finished space, how airtight the home is, the number of windows and position of the house. Contemplating those factors will allow you to choose the right furnace for your home.

The next thing to consider is whether the contractor will do a quality job, be easy to get a hold of, and stand by the work done. Checking reviews will make it easier to choose.

Also, you will want to ask questions about the brand you are considering. Is it a quality product? Check operating noise levels, warranty provided and extended warranties. Ask where the unit is made. Find out how easy is it to service and clean.

If you do require a new furnace, you can rest assured Ambassador Dearie HVAC will provide a trusted and qualified technician to make sure it is installed properly for years of worry free operation.

No matter what age your furnace is remember to change your furnace filter at least every 3 months.  When it comes to your vents make sure they are clear of anything that may be blocking the air flow.  Remember to open your basement vents in the winter (you may have closed them in the Summer while trying to maximize the benefits of having air conditioning).

Their 13,000 square foot facility allows them to provide quick and reliable service by having the unit or parts you need on hand. In other words, your new furnace is in-stock and ready to go!
