Your Omaha Furnace Repair Company

Most homeowners understand that regular maintenance is required to keep their property in the best possible condition. Despite their efforts, a lot of homeowners forget to take care of one important thing: the furnace. Regularly scheduled furnace repair services and maintenance can prevent a furnace from breaking. A broken furnace could need replacing entirely, costing much more than a repair.

Furnace repair and maintenance is an essential part of home ownership and home safety, particularly if you have an older home with an older furnace. Whether you need gas furnace repair or electric furnace repair, our technicians can be trusted to do the job right. If you have issues with a furnace blower that won’t stop running, a furnace not producing enough heat, a furnace not igniting at all, or a furnace being extremely noisy, call Caniglia Heating & Cooling today!

Checking coils, valves, wires, and cleaning your furnace are imperative because a furnace or boiler can become ineffective, vents can become blocked with dust, carbon monoxide can leak into the home, and exposed wires can easily cause a house fire. The experts at Caniglia Heating & Cooling in Omaha, Nebraska can provide affordable furnace repair services, including inspections, cleanings, and filter replacement.

Our heating experts understand that being warm in the winter is more than just a comfort issue, it can be a safety issue. Even if you have a broken furnace at 11:30 p.m. on a Friday, we’ve got you covered, unlike some furnace repair companies with long waits for service. Heating systems are vital to your family’s well-being, and we put our customers’ needs first.

Why You Need Furnace Repair

There are a lot of things that can go wrong with your furnace, especially if it has gotten behind on annual maintenance and inspections. But things can go wrong even if you have been diligent with preventative maintenance. Furnace problems are frustrating, but they really have to be dealt with because they won’t fix themselves. A few examples of furnace problems are described below.

  • One common problem with furnaces is an incorrect heat load calculation. A heat load calculation is the amount of heat energy that would be required to maintain the desired temperature. Sometimes, when furnaces are installed, these calculations are often not performed correctly.
  • A unit that is too big for your home leads to issues like air that is too dry or the furnace short cycling. A unit that is too small will of course struggle to maintain a comfortable temperature. All of these things can cause problems that require furnace repair.
  • A furnace that is not operating properly can lead to increased energy costs. When a furnace has to work harder, it will require more energy. To reduce your energy bills, it’s imperative to maintain your furnace.
  • A lack of maintenance will lead to the need for furnace repair because regular inspections and cleanings maintain the good condition of your furnace. Regular inspections can also find small issues that might need a tweak to fix them versus a full-on repair. Dirty filters that aren’t changed out regularly can cause you to need furnace repair due to the extra strain on the unit as it tries to pull air through the clogged filter.

Furnace Cleaning (and Why it Is Important)

While your furnace is doing its job to heat your home, it becomes a magnet for dirt, dust, and other sources of matter and debris. If you neglect your furnace and don’t keep it clean, you’re actually letting harmful debris make their way into your house, which can cause a variety of health issues. You may find that you and your family are more prone to viruses and germs because they aren’t being properly cleaned from the air ducts.

In general, a furnace that is uncared for can significantly decrease the quality of your air. In addition to poor air quality conditions that can be harmful to your health, an unclean furnace can affect its overall performance, causing it to not heat your home up evenly or as powerfully as it did in the past.

The cost of a new furnace may not be in your budget, so it’s important to take care of the furnace you already have. But you don’t have to handle maintenance on your own. A service technician at Caniglia Heating & Cooling can handle furnace issues for you, so you won’t have expensive furnace repair costs you can’t afford. You can rest easy and sleep comfortably with the peace of mind that comes from knowing you have a furnace system that is working as it should.

Five Reasons You Should Schedule a Furnace Inspection Today

An annual furnace inspection ensures that your furnace is in good condition and will work when you need it the most. It can also prevent serious health risks and costly emergency repairs to your home. Experienced technicians can look at your furnace and correct any issues before they turn into expensive repairs. Furnace routine maintenance costs are usually cheaper than the cost of repairs to a failing furnace.

Here are five of the main reasons you should be scheduling an annual furnace inspection:

1. Prevents Carbon Monoxide Leaks

When the heat exchanger in your furnace becomes cracked, harmful gases like carbon monoxide can leak into your home. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless, and deadly gas. Don’t put your family’s safety at risk – make annual furnace inspections part of a regular routine to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.

2. Increases Efficiency

Don’t make your furnace work harder than it has to. During an annual home heating inspection, our expert furnace repair technicians can inspect, clean, and repair your furnace, ensuring that it works as it should. Your furnace is most efficient when all of its parts are clean, without anything preventing it from working correctly. Common furnace problems can be fixed easily during an annual furnace check.

3. Clean Air Filters

Blocked vents and air filters can cause major problems with the airflow in your home or business, as well as degrade the efficiency of your furnace, which means you could have cold spots in your home. Major furnace repairs, or even a whole furnace replacement, could become necessary if smaller issues are ignored. During a home heating inspection, our technicians will replace or clean your furnace’s air filters to protect against dirt and debris circulating through your house. Keeping your furnace filter clean is an easy fix that can improve your furnace’s operation and extend the life of your furnace.

4. Extends the Life of Your Furnace

A regular, annual furnace inspection can prolong the life of your furnace, reducing the need for heater repair. Like most things, your furnace’s internal parts wear out over time. During an inspection, our technicians are trained to find problems (such as worn-out parts) that if left unattended, could result in a major repair. When a furnace stops working well, you may be forced to buy a new heating unit, which can be expensive. But you can get your money’s worth out of a furnace by obtaining regular service from a heating repair specialist.

5. Helps You Avoid an Emergency Furnace Repair

No one really wants to deal with a furnace emergency. Heating emergencies can lead to costly repairs, late night disruptions, or health and safety risks to the entire family. Emergency repair can be stressful for everyone, but situations like this can be avoided. By putting in a service call when it’s convenient for you, you won’t have to deal with the drama involved in an emergency service. While we are happy to provide you with emergency repair anytime you need it, you would probably like your heat services to be at an opportune time for you and your family.
