Repairs? Replacement? Maintenance? Oh My!


As the summer makes way for winter, temperatures in Arizona are getting down to more bearable levels. It is a fantastic time of the year when you don’t need to turn your AC on full blast throughout the day. The temperature can drop so low at night that you need to turn on the furnace that has been lying dormant throughout the year.

However, it is crucial that you understand a few things before you fire up your furnace. Most homeowners are not sure what to do when their furnace is causing them problems in Arizona. Does it need repairs? Do you need to replace it? Does it just need maintenance?

We will help you understand when you might need which services for your furnace. If you ever require any furnace repairs in Peoria, AZ, you can always get in touch with us.


There will be a time when your furnace needs a quick fix. It happens with every appliance in our homes. The wear and tear of using something every day can strain the system and some parts might break down. When your system requires repair, it can become inefficient. You could see your energy bills go sky-high without getting the heating you expect.

Here are some situations which indicate that your furnace needs repairs:

  • Loud and unusual noises
  • Insufficient or no heating
  • Bad smells coming from the furnace
  • Increased utility bills


As your furnace ages, it will become outdated and come close to the end of its lifespan. Sometimes repairing the furnace is not going to help you anymore, and you need to replace it with a new unit. Getting a new model to replace the aging furnace means you can get a more efficient unit to keep the costs low while providing excellent heating. A professional can determine when you need to replace it or if your furnace requires a few repairs.

Here are signs you need a new furnace:

  • Increased heating bills
  • Constant need for repairs
  • The furnace is older than 15 years


Maintenance is a non-negotiable requirement for all furnaces. Whether you have been using the unit for five years or you just installed it last year, each unit requires regular maintenance. Scheduling furnace maintenance annually can help prolong the life of your furnace and make it work efficiently. A more efficient model will also result in lower utility bills.
