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.
Natural gas furnaces operate similarly to the above, using a pilot light to ignite the burners and heat up the air. Also similar to propane gas, your average repair costs for a natural gas furnace will range anywhere from $125 for small repairs to $1,200 if you have to replace the entire heat exchanger. The difference between both options is not necessarily the actual furnace, but the type of gas used to burn through it and heat your home. As a result, the repair costs tend to be close to identical.
The motor belt should be firm, giving no more than ½ inch when pressed. It should also be free of cracks and damage. To remove the belt, you will need a wrench and a replacement belt. Loosen, do not remove, the motor bolts. You only need them loose enough to move the motor and slacken the belt. Remove the belt and inspect it, replacing it with a new one if necessary. Belt: $4.00 to $6.00.
I really appreciated the great same-day service provided by Chris H, Swan Plumbing & Heating's technician today. I made an appointment to get an estimate on the water heater replacement, and expected to make another appointment for the installation. But Chris came prepared with all the equipment needed, and replaced our leaking water heater in a very efficient manner within about 2 hours.
Your heating and air conditioning system naturally loses energy efficiency over time. This loss of efficiency is due to many factors, including dust and dirt, natural wear and tear, and buildup in drains or on burners. Keeping your heating system maintained with regular professional tune-ups can help to reduce these factors. During your tune-up, your maintenance technician will clean and check over your heating equipment, identifying areas of wear and tear. They can identify failing parts in need of replacement before they become a serious problem. A tune-up alone may instantly improve energy efficiency by up to 30%. You’ll also enjoy cleaner air and a cleaner residence because your HVAC system will be distributing clean air through a clean air filter. Perhaps one of the greatest benefits you’ll enjoy following a fall furnace or AC tune-up is decreased utility bills. A neglected HVAC system must work much harder to heat and cool your home, while a furnace or air conditioner that has been finely tuned can take less energy to maintain indoor comfort. Because your heating system will function more efficiently, it will deliver superior heating at lower cost than you otherwise may have had through the winter season.

Tyler M came to my house today to clean the furnace fan and motor, and to check the furnace efficiency. He arrived on time, did a great job on the furnace. The fan was really dirty and did more work than was requested as a courtesy - and still charged the quoted price. Tyler was friendly, courteous, very knowledgeable, and was very efficient in completing the work. I would definitely recommend Tyler M and Swan plumbing and Heating for excellent work at a very reasonable price.

“Walter Zainey started the Greenwood Furnace Co. in the Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle in 1918 and quickly built a reputation for providing quality products and services. For years we believed Greenwood began in 1921 but only recently, May of 2017, Walter’s granddaughter shared a newspaper ad from 1968 showing that Greenwood was actually founded in 1918! When your company goes back 100 years you are bound to have mixed messages about the history but we now have an accurate founding date and founder. Thank you to the Zainey family and especially Jacklyn for taking the time to share the story with us. I am sure Walter Zainey would be proud the heritage he created is still living on.
Cleaning the debris that builds up on your filters will aid with the flow of air. When your air filter is clogged, your air handler must work harder to compensate for the blockage of air flow. In addition to driving up your utility bill, the reduced air flow through your heating and cooling system can cause your heat exchanger to overheat and shut off too quickly.
