Signs of a Failing Furnace

B.119 Signs of a Failing Furnace

Do you have a hunch that your furnace is not operating to its 100% potential and is failing at keeping your family warm? Have you questioned whether the current odd mishap of your furnace is one that will need to be looked at by a professional?  Have you been staring at the phone wondering if it’s the right time to call in BELOMAN we are here to help!  Below are 10 signs your furnace may be failing and need to be checked out by a professional!

  1. You’ve ignored proper bi-annual maintenance: without proper maintenance you are escaping check-ups to make sure everything is running properly and efficiently. By opting out of bi-annual maintenance you may ruin the risk of your furnace slowly deteriorating.
  2. You hear constant cycling: cycling means it is running more often than it should be. This is usually an indicator of a few possible problems. A trained technician will be able to check certain areas such as the filter or thermostat to determine if it actually is a small problem or a tougher obstacle to tackle.
  3. Water around the furnace: this is probably not as big of an issue as it may appear although it is a sign that at the current time your furnace is failing at operating to its 100% potential and should be looked at by a trusted and trained professional.
  4. Utility bills are sky rocketing: did you receive your recent utility bill and blown away by an unexpectedly high dollar figure due? This is a good indicator that your furnace is not operating as efficiently as it could be. Often times when a furnace begins losing its efficiency it’s a sign that it’s losing life and slowing failing at the current time.
  5. Smell of gas: the smell of gas is a problem that will need to be dealt with by a local HVAC company and possibly your gas company. If you smell gas you should evacuate your family and pets from the home to ruin risk of health issues.
  6. You heard a loud sound: yes, your furnace may make rather odd sounds from time to time; however, any loud abnormal sounds that continue to stick around should be looked at by a technician.
  7. Age is an issue: the average life expectancy of a furnace is around the 20 year mark; however, there are a few situations in which it might fail early or even miraculously live until 40 years. The life of the furnace like all things depends on how well it’s taken care of. An aging issue could be the culprit of your failing furnace.
  8. The air blows weak: if your furnace is turning on but not blowing the correct amount of air from the vents this is also a sign of a currently failing furnace. Often times improper air flow indicates a problem with the fan belt, fan motor or a dust issue within your ductwork.
  9. Your thermostat malfunctions: your thermostat is used to communicate to the furnace what you are wanting the desired temperature to be. If it begins to malfunction by not properly following commands it’s a good indicator that you have a problem that should be address once you contact BELOMAN!
  10. Cold air instead of warm air: if you’re expecting hot air to be blowing from your vents to keep your family warm but are shocked to feel cool air instead it’s definitely a sign of a failing furnace. The problem associated with this symptom isn’t a grand problem but is one that requires specialized expertise.

5 Reasons Why Your Furnace Needs Tuned-Up!

B.118 Fall Tune-Up

Cooler fall weather is definitely on its way and it’s time to start thinking about scheduling your furnace tune-up! Together, the 5 reasons below paint a picture as to why your furnace should be tuned-up this fall:

  1. Extend the life of your furnace: like with many other concepts in life, proper maintenance helps to prolong the life expectancy. Bi-annual tune-ups help to rid any gunk, and ensure the system is always running as efficiently as possible. Just like we have regular oil changes on our cars, our HVAC system also deserves proper maintenance!
  2. Give you peace of mind: you’ll gain peace of mind by having your furnace tuned-up by making sure large issues aren’t on the verge of popping up. When a BELOMAN technician leaves your home you can rest assure that your furnace is cleaned, tuned-up, and you’ve received an explanation of its current status.
  3. Avoid costly emergency repairs: a furnace tune-up will also help to point out any areas of trouble so that you catch the repair before it turns into a larger costly repair. No one wants to have a house full of people on a cold night and the furnace decide to go out leaving guests chilled to the bone and wanting to leave early. By having your furnace tuned-up you can avoid emergency repairs!
  4. Ensure safety: tune-ups definitely help to ensure the safety of your family. Because furnaces burn fuel to produce heat, it’s important to ensure there are no issues that could affect the health of your family. Furnaces should be checked to make sure no leaks are present to avoid gas leaking into your home increasing carbon monoxide to dangerous levels.
  5. Warranty intact: last but not least your furnace should be tuned-up to keep up with the warranty in place. Often times the warranty will need proper maintenance performed. In this case, it’s best to call a trusted professional at BELOMAN!

For any HVAC or plumbing repairs, installations, indoor air quality, architectural metal or pest help the BELOMAN is here to save the day! BELIEVE IN THE BELOMAN WAY!

Don’t Forget the Filter!

B.117 Change Filter

BELOMAN knows it’s very important to remember to regularly change your HVAC filters. By forgetting to change your filter, airborne contaminants will begin to clog up the filter leading to less clean air in your home.  Aside from less allergens being trapped, it will also cause more stress on the system.  A clogged filter will make it harder for the system to cycle air through if air is struggling to pass through the dirty filter.  To avoid causing stress on your system and keep clean air in your home we’ve come up with a list of 5 ways to help remind you to change your filter!

  1. Put filters in common space: one way to remember to change your filter is to put filters in commonly accessed area. If filters are put in an area that isn’t visited they’ll be out of sight out of mind!
  2. Set reminder on phone/calendar: another great way to remember to change your filter is to set reminders in your phone’s calendar or simply write it on your calendar at home. By putting a reminder on your phone you’ll receive an alert to change your filter when it comes time to do so!
  3. Write insert date on filter: before you place your new filter in use a permanent marker to write the date of insert on the filter. This will help to remind you of the date inserted to keep up with the correct timespan to make the next change.
  4. Schedule maintenance w. important dates: certain dates are engraved in our brain to remember such as birthdays and anniversaries. Scheduling maintenance on your birthday to hang out with a technician isn’t really ideal BUT if you schedule maintenance a week after these engraved dates it will be much easier to remember. Plus, when the technician visits your home for bi-annual maintenance he’ll change the filter so you won’t have to worry about it!
  5. Reward yourself: rewarding yourself for remembering can help to sweeten the pot to remember to change your filter next time! Who doesn’t love a little something for themselves?

To order your next set of filters stop by our office or give us a call to schedule your bi-annual maintenance!

Help! I Need a Plumber!

B.116 Leak Detection

Have you been referred by your water company to contact a plumbing company to have a leak detection performed?  If you have, it’s definitely a good indicator that an issue is present and a trusted licensed plumber should check it out!  To better ease your mind we’ve presented a list of four situations in which a leak detection should be performed!

  1. Puddles!: if you’re suddenly seeing random puddles in strange places with unexplainable reasons it’s usually a good indicator that a leak detection should be performed.
  2. How soggy? Real soggy?: are you seeing more soggy patches in your yard or areas that are growing faster than the others? Soggy yard patches can also indicate a leak in the plumbing lines.
  3. Do you hear that?: are you hearing sounds of running water when you know there aren’t any faucets or appliances in use? This is also a good indicator for a leak inspection.
  4. Money money money MONEY: if you’re seeing a sudden increase in your water bill with no reason insight it’s probably a good indicator of a hidden leak. Often times if you call your water company they’ll recommend you call a plumbing company to have a plumber check for hidden leaks!

To set up your leak detection with a BELOMAN plumbing dial (618) B-E-L-O-M-A-N or visit our website here.  We’re always happy to help!  For any HVAC or plumbing repairs, installations, indoor air quality, architectural metal or pest help the BELOMAN is here to save the day.

Are Your Ducts In A Row??

B.115 Air Duct Cleaning

Have you been hearing about the importance of clean air in your home but aren’t sure how to achieve it for your exact situation?  The BELOMAN is here to help.  With help from an Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) expert it may be determined that an air duct cleaning is the perfect solution.  The following below are 5 good reasons your ductwork may be the culprit in order to achieve cleaner air in your home!

  1. Allergies: Does your family suffer from allergies? By choosing an air duct cleaning it will help to protect against harmful dust and contaminants. These pesky allergens can cause allergies to flare. Your own home shouldn’t be an uncomfortable living space!
  2. Pets: Did the previous homeowner have a cat or fluffy dog that you’re allergic to? In this case, clumps of air could be stuck within the ductwork which could aggravate your allergies and slow down the airflow of the entire system.
  3. Dust: Does it feel like dust is showing up more frequently causing the need to break out the dusting spray more often? Have you had recent construction done at your home? In this case, it’s probably a good idea to have your ductwork inspected to be cleaned as this kind of dust and debris can build up and begin circulating through you home.
  4. Mold: Is your ductwork located in a wet, damp, or often flooded area? If so, your ductwork is more prone to begin to grow mold. Mole spores can begin circulating through your ductwork and into your home. Mold allergens have been known to disrupt respiratory health issues.
  5. Efficiency: While keeping all of the above in mind, it’s important to keep your ductwork clean in order to keep your system running as efficiently as possible. When the air is not able to properly circulate throughout the home it can cause unwanted stress on the system.

If you would like further information feel free to give us a call at (618) B-E-L-O-M-A-N or visit our website here.  We would love to visit your home for a free IAQ analysis to determine the best solution.  For any HVAC or plumbing repairs, installations, indoor air quality, architectural metal or pest help the BELOMAN is here to save the day.

I Need to Maintain My Water Heater…Why?

B.114 Maintain Water Heater.jpg

Just as we schedule regular maintenance for our cars and HVAC systems it’s also important to schedule regular maintenance on your water heater.  How awful would it be to wake up in the morning, turn on the shower and step into an ice cold stream of water? When a licensed and trusted plumber performs regular maintenance on your water heater you’ll avoid stepping into a cold shower and gain even more benefits!  Three major benefits for keeping up with annual maintenance are:

1. Increase Efficiency: regular maintenance on your water heater can definitely help to increase its operating efficiency.  If you have ever heard odd sounds coming from your water heater, it is a good indicator that it is not operating as efficiently as it should be.  Often times when odd sounds are coming from your water heater and keeping constant it’s an indicator that there is a sediment buildup occurring.  Sediment is formed when loose minerals settle to the bottom.  A sediment buildup may make it more difficult to produce the hot water needed.  To avoid sediment forming it’s a good idea to have the maintenance performed and flush the tank.  By keeping your water heater running more efficiently you’ll begin saving money on your utility bill and continue heating your water as desired!
2. Decrease Likelihood of Costly Repairs: regular maintenance helps to decrease the likelihood of costly repairs because you’ll be more updated on what is actually going on with your equipment.  When a licensed and trusted plumber performs the maintenance, they’ll be more apt to find leaks or corrosion before the repair turns into one that will hit the wallet a little too hard.
3. No surprises: in addition to decreasing the likelihood of costly repairs, you’ll also avoid surprises.  While some surprises can be good surprises, when it comes to plumbing surprises they’re not always the best to receive.  Unwanted surprises can include a dreaded cold shower or even coming home to an excess of water around a broken water heater.  Regular water heater maintenance will definitely help to avoid unwanted surprises!

Don’t’ wait to schedule your maintenance today! If you would like further information feel free to give us a call at (618) B-E-L-O-M-A-N or visit our website here.  We would love to help you today!  For any HVAC or plumbing repairs, installations, indoor air quality, architectural metal or pest help the BELOMAN is here to save the day.  Like always, the #BELOMAN is here to save the day!
