Whether you have an electric or gas furnace, you shouldn’t have to suffer when your heater is not working. At Sears Home Services, our technicians fix many of the top furnace manufacturers. The issues you may face with your furnace can vary depending on the type of heating system. If you own an electric model and it isn’t working, some of the potential causes include:
What does air conditioning maintenance mean? Well, it means much more than just changing the air filter. Over time, its internal components may accumulate a substantial amount of dust and other debris that can begin to take its toll on system performance and energy efficiency. Let us take care of your cooling system with our air conditioning maintenance in Federal Way, WA.
Don has earned a lifetime customer! My wife and I moved into our fixer-upper house this summer and just when the weather turned we realized that the 8 year old Goodman furnace in our basement had rusted heat exchange pipes and was leaking carbon monoxide. (So much for the $400 I paid to an home inspector before we moved in...) Fortunately, the furnace had a warranty still active. Not so fortunately, Goodman was incompetent in getting us the replacement part. It took them a month to send it, and then it wasn't even the right part. Don went to bat for us and convinced Goodman to foot the bill for an entirely new furnace! He and another worker made time in their busy schedule during thanksgiving week to come out and get the unit installed. This is above and beyond service and I couldn't be happier.
Inspect your furnace thermostat by first making sure that it’s turned on. Also, ensure that the thermostat switch is turned to “heat” and not “cool”. If your furnace will still not start with the thermostat on, try adjusting the temperature settings to a few degrees higher. Inspect any visible wires for breaks or splits, and make sure your thermostat batteries are not dead. Do not touch any open wires; contact a professional.
I have a Bosch condenser dryer that heats up and after 3-5 mins cuts out (no lights/power). After is cools a while, the machine can be restarted and runs a while longer until it shuts down again. This process repeats several times, with each progressive drying cycle being a little longer than the previous until the clothes are eventually dry.I've tested the the thermal-protector for continuity and the NTC-sensor on the heating element appears to be fine (tested for resistance). Could it be a faulty sensor/component on the control board that's getting too hot and cutting out the power? And if so, can it be easily identified/replaced, or would I need to replace the whole control board?Any help would be greatly appreciated!
If you have an older furnace with a standing pilot light, it’s possible that the pilot light has been extinguished. First, confirm that the light is out. Then, turn the gas valve to the off position and wait five minutes. If there is a reset button on your furnace, turn the valve to the pilot position and hold a flame to the dedicated pilot opening while pushing the button for about 30 seconds. (If the pilot doesn’t light on the first attempt, wait a few minutes and repeat the procedure, this time depressing the reset button for 45-60 seconds.) Once the pilot is lit, turn the gas valve back to the on position. If the pilot light won’t stay lit, it’s possible that there is an issue with the thermocouple or ignition system. Call an HVAC professional for assistance.

If you need a furnace repaired or an air conditioner serviced, we'll send a local technician out to diagnose the specific problem and recommend solutions for you and your family. There will be a diagnostic fee for the visit, and any specific repairs will be an additional charge. If replacing your system is the best solution, the fee for the diagnosis will be credited toward the purchase and install of a new system.
The national average for furnace replacement is between $1,800 and $2,500. The cost can range dramatically higher depending on the model of furnace you select, any repair work you require, your location and the cost of installation. Furnace installation costs can be more than the furnace itself due to the cost of doing business and the expertise needed to install the HVAC equipment. Installing a new furnace generally requires technical know-how and the proper tools and licensing. It’s best to hire a pro and budget for furnace installation rather than risk potentially unsafe DIY installation. This will ensure your home’s safety. Check to see if your HVAC contractor has the proper licensing to do the job. If you need duct repair or replacement, expect to pay more for your furnace installation costs. The price for duct repair could be an hourly rate ranging on average anywhere from $85 to $150 per hour, with additional costs for parts.
This feature uses a number of thermostats, a sophisticated central controller, and a series of dampers that control airflow to deliver different amounts of heating or cooling to different parts of the home. The larger the home, as a rule, the more useful zoning is. That's especially true if sections of the home have different heating or cooling requirements, because of wide variations in the number or type of windows, for example. But contractors we interviewed said that furnaces connected to zoned ductwork generally require more repair.
Our services are not limited to only HVAC maintenance, HVAC installation, and HVAC repair. One Hour Air Conditioning and Heating also is concerned with the QUALITY of the air inside your home. Allergies are a big problem. Statistics prove that often the quality of air inside your home can be worse than outside, due to the home being air tight and accumulating dust, molds, and contaminants. Your air conditioning ducts often harbor many of these contaminants. One Hour Air offers Air Duct Cleaning to promote a healthy indoor environment.
