Not all of Arizona is dry and hot; northern Arizona is full of pine trees, flowing creeks, and cold, snowy winters. When temperatures in the winter drop below freezing, it’s important to keep your furnace in good working order. While many homeowners prefer to handle maintenance themselves, the DIY approach is not always best when dealing with the heating and cooling systems of your home.
If your home needs furnace repair or replacement, it is highly recommended that you call a professional.
When looking for a qualified heating and cooling service, trust your work to a company that has a history of excellent service in your area. Yavapai Plumbing and Heating has been servicing the Prescott Valley area for over 20 years. Our expert technicians are trained and certified in all types of HVAC equipment, from small residential to large commercial systems. They’ll have no problem inspecting your heating system and making recommendations.
Your furnace is part of a system that needs to be inspected and serviced annually to avoid undue wear and tear on the parts and eventual failure of the system. A qualified technician will inspect ductwork, gas lines, ignition systems, temperature control systems, and other critical elements of your furnace in order to know whether to replace parts or recommend a new furnace.
The experts at Yavapai Plumbing know how a system is supposed to run for maximum efficiency during the winter.
They’ll check the ductwork in your house to make sure the ducts are clear, properly sized for your unit, and work for the fan speed of your unit. They’ll check the unit itself to make sure it is the right size; too small a unit works too hard and won’t last as long as it is supposed to. To compensate, some builders will install a furnace that is too large for the home, which also works too hard by cycling on and off more frequently and burns energy. Your tech will make sure the furnace is functioning properly and is not in need of major repairs. This seems obvious, but furnaces have a lifespan of 10-15 years. The components of a heating system wear out over time, and eventually, the benefit of installing a new furnace outweighs the cost of continuing to repair the old one.
New furnaces are much more efficient than old ones; the improvements in efficiency could easily justify a replacement.
Yavapai Plumbing estimates that 75% of parts failures lead to major repairs, and over 50% of those break down completely. Our technicians are trained to identify repairs and assess the lifespan of the furnace. If your furnace is over 2/3 of its expected lifespan, then continuing to repair the unit will quickly add up. If your furnace still has plenty of life left, our techs are trained in the latest equipment and techniques to keep your furnace running smoothly all winter long.
