If you have a high-efficiency furnace, you’re set for winter. High-efficiency gas furnaces have Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency or AFUE ratings of 90% or higher, with a maximum of 98.5%. The AFUE measurement gauges how much heat your furnace gets from the fuel it uses. Furnaces with a higher AFUE rating will work faster, better, and provide more fuel-efficient warmth for your home. If your current furnace is making noises, needs repair, or is just plain old, it’s probably a good idea to have it inspected at the very least. It may be that you need a furnace replacement in Monroe County Michigan. J&K Heating & Cooling to the rescue! We specialize in inspecting, repairing, and replacing furnaces and heat pumps.
Don’t postpone the inevitable
Some homeowners ignore warning signs that their furnace is on the blink, such as water around the area, knocking noises, and poor heat distribution throughout your house. While most of us in MI aren’t looking forward to winter storms and frigid temperatures, that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t prepare for it. After all, being prepared can make all the difference when it comes to heating your home.
Q. Do you offer furnace servicing and cleaning?
A. Yes. J&K will completely inspect your furnace to determine if it needs any maintenance or cleaning. Perhaps a small tune-up and a new air filter are all that is needed—if so, we’ll proceed and let you know. If you have a furnace that is malfunctioning or not working efficiently, we’ll present options to you such as installing a new high-efficiency furnace.
Q. Does J&K service heat pumps?
A. Absolutely! We’ll fully inspect your home’s heat pump inside and out and determine if it’s operating at full capacity. A few warning signs that your heat pump might need replacing include:
- It’s constantly running
- It won’t cool down
- It won’t turn on
- It’s making odd noises and/or emitting a foul odor
- It’s not providing any or enough heat
Q. I’ve been reading about the importance of indoor air quality recently. Does indoor air quality really matter?
A. It does! Fresh, clean air impacts your well-being and health. In the winter especially, you and your family members are probably spending more time indoors, so that means you require more fresh, breathable air. Indoor air that is full of pollutants, dust, and other foreign bodies can threaten your health and lead to respiratory illnesses and other chronic health conditions. J&K Heating & Cooling uses state-of-the-art equipment to test your indoor air quality. Once tested, we’ll let you know if it passes industry standards for clean air.
We use an Air Quality Index (AQI) to measure air quality. Generally, readings of 50 or below are considered good, and numbers of 300 or higher mean hazardous air quality exists. If your air has poor quality, we recommend changing your air filters and improving ventilation. Also, we’ll check your furnace to see if it’s emitting any noxious fumes or particles – if so, you might need it replaced.
Preventive maintenance is just as important as regular maintenance
With inflation rising and prices of everything from fuel and groceries climbing, you might think it’s wise to just do the bare minimum when it comes to taking care of your home’s maintenance. The thing is, if you wait too long in some cases, it will be too late, and you’ll have to spend more money on a total replacement. By scheduling regular inspections, changing your air filters, and having your furnace and heat pump maintained and cleaned, you’ll increase your chances of saving money and enjoying a more comfortable winter. We all know how important it is to keep gas in our car, keep it washed and clean, check the air in its tires, and change the oil regularly, because if we don’t, we might end up stranded.
Your home’s HVAC system is no different. It requires year-round TLC, even in the nicer weather. You don’t want to get caught in below-zero temperatures with a non-functioning furnace—then you’ll be in total “reaction mode,” at the mercy of whatever heating contractor who’s available and answering their phone.
