November 16, 2015

If you rely on a boiler or furnace to heat your Utica, NY home, you know how comfortable your heating equipment keeps you when it’s running perfectly. A furnace or boiler at the top of its game will keep your whole house warm and toasty, and will provide you with the energy efficiency you need to keep your utility bills manageable. But what if you’re not as comfortable as you’d like, and your energy bills are through the roof? Then you may need the boiler or furnace in your home serviced.

According to ENERGY STAR, there are indicators that show homeowners that they need, at the very least, boiler or furnace repair services. We’ve broken them down for you to help you decide if the time is right to call Fred F. Collis & Sons for the boiler or furnace repair needs of your Utica, NY home:

Your equipment is more than 15 years old. If your furnace or boiler is more than a decade and a half old, and it hasn’t necessarily received the proper maintenance over the years, you might wish to consider calling us for services. We can look over your equipment, make any necessary repairs to your furnace or boiler, and let you know if there are more energy-efficient options for you.

Your furnace or boiler has needed frequent repairs. If you’re spending a lot of money on the repair needs of your equipment, it may very well be time to consider replacement. While we’ll make every attempt to repair the furnace or boiler in your Utica, NY home, we’ll also be honest with you – if repairs are costing you a lot of money and aggravation, it might be time to replace.

Some rooms are too hot or too cold. This could mean that your equipment is operating improperly. Fred F. Collis & Sons can help you get the boiler or furnace repairs you need for your Utica, NY home, so you can enjoy all rooms in complete comfort. Your utility bills are on the rise. With the fluctuation of fuel costs, you can expect a nominal increase or decrease in your utility bills year after year. But if your energy consumption is at an all-time high – and fuel costs haven’t increased dramatically and your home isn’t being kept any warmer – then you might have an issue with your boiler or furnace that needs attention.

You notice noises that aren’t a part of usual operation. If your furnace is making any loud, unusual noises, or if there’s knocking and pinging coming from your boiler, then it might be a good indication that your home’s heating system requires some repair for continued safe operation.
