5 Reasons to Tune-up Your Furnace

5 Reasons to Tune-up Your Furnace

  • Heating

As the winter winds down, people all across America will be giving their heaters and furnaces a break as warm weather makes a return. However, just because the weather is warming up doesn’t mean you should forget about your furnace. In fact, some of the best times to get your furnace inspected and tuned-up are during the spring and fall months. A spring tune-up will give your furnace the checkup it needs after a long winter of warming your home, while a fall tune-up will ensure it runs smoothly all winter long.

Here are 5 reasons to have No Problem Heating and Cooling tune-up your furnace today:

  1. Cleaning. Whether you use a furnace or boiler to heat your home, heating systems accumulate dust and other particles throughout their life. All of that debris can negatively affect the efficiency and performance of your furnace. When your furnace is working harder, it can cause a big jump in your utility bills and wear down your furnace’s overall lifespan. When technicians from No Problem give your furnace a tune-up, they’ll make sure to give it a thorough cleaning to prevent such issues.
  2. Less risk of failure. You might not know it, but certain parts of your furnace may have been heavily worn down when winter ended. If you leave your furnace unchecked until you use it next winter, there’s a good chance it’ll break early on when you need it. You don’t want to have your furnace replaced or repaired while you’re in the middle of sub-zero temperatures! Call us to make sure your furnace is able to handle next winter.
  3. Cheaper than a major repair. If you think paying for a tune-up might be too costly, consider this. If your furnace breaks down and needs emergency service, it’s going to cost a lot of money. On the other hand, the preventative maintenance that we perform during a tune-up generally costs much less. Make the smart choice and have us take a look at your furnace.
  4. Safety. In order to produce heat, furnaces have to burn some sort of fuel. This combustion process can cause problems if something is wrong with the furnace. Gasses could leak into the house, carbon monoxide could be released, or your furnace could start a fire. Don’t take a chance with your safety and call No Problem so your furnace won’t be a problem.
  5. Maintain your warranty. If your furnace is under manufacturer warranty, it’s a good idea to have it regularly checked. Many manufacturer warranties state that they will become void if the furnace doesn’t get regular maintained. Having one of our technicians give your furnace a tune-up can uphold your warranty and ensure you’re covered. That way, if something does result in your furnace dying, you can get a refund on it.

Furnace Problems You May Experience This Winter

Furnace Problems You May Experience This Winter

  • Heating
furnace repair in St. Charles, MO by No Problem Heating and Cooling

As winter settles in St. Charles, MO, you want to think about the health of your furnace. It is important to be on the lookout for common furnace issues before they break down your heating system entirely. Here at No Problem Heating and Cooling, we have put together a list of common furnace issues you may experience before winter ends. 

  1. Faulty Pilot Lights: Along with some other mechanical parts, the pilot light could be malfunctioning and causing no heat or intermittent heat. There are two parts that tend to be the culprit for faulty pilot lights: the thermocouple and the pilot tube.
  1. Defective Blowers: If you have a demand for heat and the blower is not running, it is important to check the blower motor is functioning. A blower motor breakdown can be caused by old age, faulty bearings, loss of electrical power, or dirt accumulation. If you cannot see any visible dirt and debris blocking the motor function, then call a technician at No Problem to service the motor. 
  2. Poor Electrical Connections: With the passing of time, the vibrations that come with a running furnace can lead to internal wires becoming loose or fraying. These wires and eventually short and cause your furnace to shut off. It can take a bit of time to find the loose wire, but replacing it will fix the issue. To prevent this, schedule regular furnace maintenance to check for damaged parts and ensure the furnace is in working order before winter settles in. 
  3. Damaged or Dirty Coils: The coil ensures that the right air supply is being sent through the furnace which heats your home. If for some reason these passages become clogged or damaged, the air flow will be restricted. Furnaces are set to run with a certain amount of air flow, and any disturbance to this level will decrease the efficiency of our furnace to generate heat. 
  4. Clogged Air Filters: As a general rule. the filter in your furnace should be replaced every 3 months in order to extend both the efficiency and life of the furnace. You should change it more frequently if there are pets in the home or someone has allergies. Dirty filters reduce the flow of air and reduce air quality in the home. A dirty air filter puts strain on your furnace and makes it work harder. This reduces the efficiency of the unit and costs you money in the long run. 
  5. Thermostat Malfunctions: The thermostat is a device that measures the temperature in your home and alerts the furnace when to turn on. If your thermostat is not functioning properly, it can cause the furnace to turn on or off at the wrong time. It may not sense that temperature has been reached and continue to run, or it may not sense the drop in temperature letting your home become frigid. If you notice inconsistent temperatures in your home, consider having your thermostat checked by a professional. 
  6. Air Flow Problems: Most of the time, furnaces have two types of air flow. The first one is an incoming source of air. Then, there is a steady flow of air out into the home so that the heat can be evenly distributed. If either one of these airflow’s  restricted, the efficiency of the furnace will go down. If there are any clogs, blockages, or duct leaks, they should be dealt with quickly so as not to impact the quality of your home heat.
  7. Air Leaks in the Household: If you have air drafts in the household, your furnace will end up working harder to compensate for the loss of heat. Aside from putting strain on the furnace, it will also cost you more on your energy bills. You should go through your home and seal any drafty windows, doors, or places you feel air escaping. 

If these issues happen, just give us a call! Our experts are ready to help you today.

8 Signs of Imminent Furnace Failure

8 Signs of Imminent Furnace Failure

  • Heating
furnace failure in Missouri by No Problem

It’s never enjoyable waking up freezing in the middle of the night. However, that can happen if you wind up dealing with a furnace failure. Even if you’ve gotten your furnace a tune-up, some problems have a way of sneaking up on you. Fortunately, the experts at No Problem Heating and Cooling can tell you what behaviors indicate a furnace in need of our services

Here are eight signs that you’ll soon be seeing a furnace failure:

 

Gas leaks

Having your furnace leaking flammable gas is an extremely dangerous problem. You should turn off the gas supply valve right away if you smell gas. Afterward, call your gas supplier and get them to help you find the problem. In the meantime, stay outside your house and avoid messing with matches or switches. Alternatively, you may be dealing with carbon monoxide, another gas furnaces can leak. It’s an odorless gas, so you have to rely on carbon monoxide detectors or knowing the symptoms to detect it. If there is a carbon monoxide leak, leave the house and call the fire department.

 

Old age

On average, modern furnaces can last 16 to 20 years old if they’ve been cared for properly. If your furnace is getting this old, you should look for a replacement. You’ll have more time to look for a furnace if yours isn’t broken down yet.

 

No ignition

Having your furnace be unable to ignite means you won’t be getting any heat. Modern furnaces use either a Hot Surface Ignition system or an Intermittent Pilot system. The first system uses a controlled resistance heating element to heat the gas burner. Meanwhile, the second system uses a high voltage electric spark to ignite the gas pilot with the main burners. This probably won’t matter much to you, as you’ll need a professional’s assistance to fix both of these.

 

Mechanical problems/loud noises

Wear and tear is a common problem for furnaces and anything else with plenty of mechanical parts. A common sign of mechanical problems is if your furnace is noisier than usual. Many different mechanical problems can cause these noises, so we suggest giving us a call to diagnose the problem.

 

Higher heating bills

Oftentimes, a furnace that’s not running its best can wind up causing your heating bills to rise. A variety of problems can make your furnace inefficient, which means it’ll use more energy to heat your home. It’s also worth noting that inefficient furnaces tend to die quicker to the heavier workload.

 

Clogged filters

It’s important to regularly change out and clean your furnace’s filters, as they tend to get dirty quickly. The filters are meant to allow air to cool your furnace while keeping contaminants out. If they get mucked up, it can result in reduced airflow and constant cycling, which is when the furnace turns on and off.

 

Fluctuating temperatures

At times, your home’s temperature may fluctuate even though the thermostat stays the same. Oftentimes, this is because your furnace is becoming inefficient and can’t evenly regulate your home’s temperature.

 

Yellow burner flame

If the burner’s flame is yellow or flickering a lot, your furnace may start producing carbon monoxide. Other signs your furnace may produce carbon monoxide include:

*Streaks of soot around the furnace.

*No upward draft in your chimney.

*Excess moisture on walls, windows, and other cold surfaces.

*Excessive rusting on appliance jacks, flue pipes, and other pipe connections.

*Small amounts of water leaking from the base of the chimney, vent, or flue pipe.

*Rust on the part of the vent pipe visible from the outside.

5 Signs You Need A New Furnace Filter

5 Signs You Need A New Furnace Filter

  • Heating
new furnace filter in Missouri by No Problem

When it comes to replacing the filter in your furnace, there’s no exact science to it. Many different factors can change the recommended replacement time. Some of these include owning pets, the manufacturer’s instructions, and how much you run the furnace. Whatever the case may be, it’s always important to change out your filters when needed. However, a big part of changing your filters is to know the signs that your filter needs changing. Here at No Problem, we can help give you some signs that you should watch for.

Here are five signs that you should get a new furnace filter:

 

Rising energy bills

Dirty and clogged filters can be a major reason your energy bills increase. You might not notice yourself turning up the heat more, but you’ll likely notice the jump in your energy bills. Keeping your filters well-maintained can help you cut 5-15% off of your bills.

 

Visible grime

If you look at your filter and it looks filthy, that’s a good sign it might need changing soon. Dirty filters are usually gray and usually have some dirt and dust on the filter itself.

 

Burning smells

When the filters or burner motor in your furnace start to overheat, they can emit a burning smell. To prevent this, furnaces need to have some air flowing through their system. However, it can’t do this if the filter gets clogged and air can’t get through. Getting a new filter for your furnace can help its parts avoid overheating.

 

Feeling sick

Bad health can be a hard sign to link to your furnace. Especially since you’ll often see allergies and sinus problems as seasons change. However, if your allergies seem worse than usual, you might want to take a look at your furnace’s filter. A compromised filter can result in your home’s air quality dropping.

 

Every three months

As we mentioned before, there are plenty of factors that determine the best time to change your filter. However, one of the better recommendations is to change it every three months minimum. You might want to change it more when you have it working hard, such as in the middle of winter. That’s fine, and you should fine-tune your filter-changing schedule based on your home’s needs. Our experts can help you determine the best time frame for replacing your filters.

5 Benefits of a Furnace Tune-Up

5 Benefits of a Furnace Tune-Up

  • Heating
furnace tune-up in Missouri by No Problem

Fall is here and it’s time to get your heating ready for the approaching winter. One of the more common heating systems you might use is a furnace. If you have one, you likely haven’t been using it for at least half the year. Also, all that inactivity may have worn down your furnace. To make sure it’ll work, we suggest calling for a furnace tune-up. You never know how healthy your furnace is after a long break, so calling for a tune-up is always a smart move.

Here are five reasons that getting a furnace tune-up is a good idea:

 

Determine your furnace’s health

When you get your furnace tuned-up, you’ll be able to understand how your furnace is faring. Knowing this, you’ll have a good idea on whether you need to get a furnace replacement. If you scheduled your tune-up early in the season and you choose to replace, you’ll have plenty of time to shop around for new furnaces.

 

Prolong your furnace’s life

Furnaces need the occasional tune-up in order to ensure they’ll work as long as possible. Ignoring the needs of your furnace will only hurt it in the long run. Also, poorly-maintained furnaces tend to break down at the worst possible moments.

 

Higher energy efficiency

Running a furnace to heat your home can be expensive. According to the Department of Energy, it can contribute to about half of the average homeowner’s energy bill. Fortunately, keeping your furnace in good condition can lower that percentage. A tune-up can deal with most problems that can reduce your furnace’s energy efficiency. Well-tuned furnaces use about 30% less energy than usual.

 

Prevent deadly gas leaks

Poorly-maintained gas furnaces can become serious dangers to you and your family. Carbon monoxide, which can be released from malfunctioning furnaces, is deadly to people and many animals. Meanwhile, badly-maintained gas furnaces can also leak flammable gasses that can start house fires if ignited.

Cheaper than major repairs

Our furnace tune-up services cost money, but they’re cheaper than major repairs for a broken furnace. During tune-up jobs, we’ll fix any small problems we find that could lead to something worse later. By doing this, we’ll protect you from a surprise breakdown and you won’t pay for a major repair.

 

Why is No Problem my best choice for keeping my furnace running strong?

We offer sales, service, and installation for all of your repair, service or installation needs. Whether it is residential, commercial, or hospitality corporations we do it all.

Heating and Cooling Options for Your Basement

Heating and Cooling Options for Your Basement

  • Cooling
  • Heating
basement heating and cooling by No Problem Heating and Cooling in Missouri

You’re doing some renovations on your basement, and there’s one question left on your mind: how should I heat and cool it? There are plenty of options when it comes to controlling the temperature in your basement.

There are a few key questions you want to consider when looking at your options:

    1. How often will I use my basement? Some people treat their basements like it’s just another room in the house that will see plenty of use, especially when company comes over. Others simply use their basement as a place to store extra junk. Depending on how often you use it, heating and cooling systems may not be as much of a priority.
    2. Can I extend my current HVAC system, if I have one? If your home has an HVAC system, it might be possible to extend it to your basement. If a qualified HVAC technician says it’s possible, you can have the current ductwork extended into the basement. This is much easier to do if the basement is unfinished or in the early stages of remodeling.
    3. How will my local climate affect my decision? Depending on where you live, heating and/or cooling may be a much bigger concern than usual. If you live down in Florida, you’ll likely be more interested in cooling options. In colder areas, you’ll be more interested in something like baseboard heaters.
    4. How will the floor plan affect things? Odds are you already have some heating, cooling, or plumbing components in your basement. When designing your basement, you’ll want this equipment closed off for functional and aesthetic reasons. However, you don’t want them closed off entirely, as you’ll likely need to do future maintenance. A good idea is to have a ventilated utility or mechanical room to conceal the equipment.

Once you’ve considered all of your options, you should have a good idea of what you’re looking for. If you still aren’t sure what you need, you can always ask one of our professionals for their opinion.

Why is No Problem Heating and Cooling the one to trust with heating or cooling my basement?

Blue Tube UV Light

Blue Tube UV Light

  • Cooling
  • Heating
  • HVAC
Blue-tube UV light

In 1903 a Nobel Prize In medicine was given to Niels Finsen for the use of ultraviolet lights in the treatment of tuberculosis. Over time we have adapted the UV light for many resources The use UV lights to sterilize water, sterilize hospitals and even germ lamps in food establishments.

Does a UV Light Work?

We have been installing Blue Tube UV lights in homes now for years. This is the original low-voltage UV light system. We have found the Blue Tube to be the most effective when it comes to killing bacteria in your air ducts. After the installation of a Blue Tube, you will start to notice a fresher air in your home.

Should I Buy A Blue Tube UV Light?

This light has an award-winning patent for being the original low voltage light kit for your HVAC system. The makers of the light are so confident in the light that it comes with a lifetime warranty. Your HVAC system is made up of coils. Mold loves to live in the cold, most inside of your air conditioner. The Blue Tube UV light has proven its effectiveness at killing mild and other contaminants. When you have mold built up on your coil, it can shorten the life of the system and reduce efficiency.

UV Lights Improves Indoor Air Quality

Your air filter alone is not going to be enough to stop all the unhealthy particles from getting into your home. Yes, the filter is a great stopper and is the front line. The problem is there is more waste in your home than on the inside. When you ad a UV Light you are supercharging the cleaning portion of your HVAC system. If you have kids with health issues, pets or a construction worker in the house it would be a huge idea to have a UV light.
