adjusting-thermostatDoes something seem off when you are heating your home? Does your heater seem to start up at an appropriate time when temperatures in your home get chilly, but then it runs only very briefly once it’s started up? Does it then start right back up after it’s cycled off?

Monday, January 14th, 2019

furnace-wiringThose homeowners looking for a tried and true home heating system are not likely to overlook the furnace.

Why Is My Heater Blowing Cool Air?

Monday, December 31st, 2018

blue-question-markIt can be easy to underestimate just how important a great heater is when you live in an area that is not exactly well-known for cold winter weather. That being said, however, even “mild” winters can cause considerable discomfort, and this is especially true when your heater just isn’t pulling its weight anymore. Now, you may think that you don’t have a problem on your hands so long as your heater is up and running. That’s not really true, though.

Many are going to affect its performance to varying degrees. A fairly obvious sign of trouble is a forced air heater, like a furnace or a heat pump, that is blowing cool air. If you have this problem, then it is time to schedule heating repairs in Raleigh with our team.
