Protecting against Carbon Monoxide through a Toledo Furnace Expert

A furnace technician must be called in to evaluate the heating system’s entire status and act accordingly on the findings. Prevention is the best cure; Alonzy suggests asking your contractor about setting up CO sensors at strategic locations in the house, such as the bedroom.

The furnace heat exchanger itself will have to be checked for cracks, as CO can seep out from them when the machine is running. A Toledo furnace installation expert can recommend a replacement if the testing showed evidence of potential CO generation. The replacement furnace may make a difference if the current machine has logged several years.

Choose Professional Toledo Furnace Installation Over a DIY Project

Upon installing the gas piping, check that there are no leaks by spraying a detector solution on the pipe connections. If bubbles appear, then you’ll know that you didn’t really do a good job of connecting the pipes, and that there are leaks.

Hopefully, there won’t be any leaks. Should there be, however, shut off the valve, and instead go for a professional Toledo furnace installation service. Attempting DIY should be fun and all that, but when it comes to you and your family’s safety, it’s no laughing matter.

Save up on Toledo Air Conditioning Expenses With Quality HVAC Services

It’s not only with the heating system that homes and institutions could save money on. As long as professional service providers for heating and air conditioning in Toledo are called to work on the issue, any heating or cooling issues can easily be taken care of.

Of course, considering how expensive the units are by themselves, homeowners should not even attempt to tinker with their HVAC systems unless they are certain they know what they are doing. Otherwise, they might just end up doing more harm than good to the unit, and in the end, result in them not having any heating or air conditioning when they need it the most.

Toledo Furnace Repair: Assessing Possible Causes of Heating Problems

Solomon’s furnace maintenance tips mainly apply to gas furnaces, which is a good thing for Ohio homeowners, as about 68 percent of households in the state rely on gas furnaces (as of 2011). Gas furnaces are ideal for providing heat through prolonged periods of time– something that electric furnaces don’t excel at.

Considering that Ohio experiences some of the country’s harshest winters every year, the preference of majority of the state’s homeowners for gas furnaces is understandable. This also means that a reliable Toledo furnace repair company, like Action Heating Air Conditioning & Electrical, has to be highly knowledgeable and experienced in fixing both gas and electric heating systems.

Winters Biggest Lesson: The Need for Efficient Toledo HVAC Systems

The sad part is that residents are virtually powerless against dramatic increases in utility and gas costs. At the height of the winter season, many Toledo homeowners simply resigned themselves to the fact that their bills would be much higher this year than last year’s.

While it’s too early to tell if the next winter season would be worse, savvy homeowners can take matters into their own hands by refitting their homes with less-expensive, yet efficient heating systems. They can call on a reputable Toledo HVAC company, such Action Heating Air Conditioning & Electrical, for help in achieving this.

Keep the Fires Burning with Furnace Maintenance

Chilly days and nights are not exactly how you would want to spend your time at home. To avoid such discomfort, you’ll need to pay attention to your furnace. Here are a few tips to ensure that your home gets the most out of its heating system.

  • Dirt is the Enemy. A clean furnace is an efficient furnace. Dirt can increase the amount of fuel a furnace consumes, as well as lowers its capability to adequately generate heat. The first part that needs maintenance is the filter, which is why it needs to be cleaned at least a month before heavy use, and you’ll have to maintain a monthly cleanup schedule during its usage. Next, the blower and the motor have to be checked.
  • Lubrication. A furnace’s motor has a lot of moving parts. It is possible for such parts to develop problems like rusting or friction damage. This is why they need lubrication. Most of the time, furnace makers seal them up and have them permanently lubricated. However, for others, they’ll need to be lubricated. Regularly put some lubricant on these mechanical parts to ensure their smooth operation.
  • Check for Leaks. Furnaces need fuel, so they are usually hooked up to gas lines. Take a look at your furnace’s pipes to see if they have developed any leaks to make sure that no gas is wasted or is dangerously escaping to your home.

Tips to Bolster Your Air Conditioning Efficiency

This summer, you might want to think of ways to keep your air conditioning system efficiently functioning for a long time before repairs have to be made. Otherwise you and your family could be inconvenienced with a hot house for days on end. Remember that the simplest way towards AC longevity is cleaning and maintenance, and here are some simple tips that can help you achieve that:

Cleaning Debris

Make sure that the AC unit’s housing is free of dirt, dust, and debris, because these could hamper its function and make it harder for your unit to produce cool air. Dust it at least once every week, and trim back grass, bushes, overhanging branches with leaves and remove other things that might be littering your AC.


Every moving part of your AC needs to be lubricated from time to time, otherwise there can be too much friction buildup, thereby making your unit overheat or letting it expend more energy to work. Check the valves, fans, motor and other mechanical components and if they seem to be slowing down or are worn due to friction, place some oil on their surface.

Cleaning Coils

Your AC’s condenser and evaporator coils are important because they facilitate the removal or exchange of heat from the outside air so that it’s cool by the time it gets inside. Dirty coils mean increased energy consumption and premature wear and tear.

Signs You Need Electric Furnace Repair

Given the brutal winter conditions that Toledo locals dealt with from late 2013-early 2014, it’s only fitting that they put their electric furnaces to good use. However, while electric furnaces run cleaner than gas or oil furnaces, owners still have to regularly change the filters and duct cleaning to keep them in good condition. At times, however, replacement of filters and duct cleaning is not enough.

Some Reasons for HVAC Troubles

Toledo is most certainly happy that spring has arrived. The bitter polar vortex that struck the entire Midwest and East Coast during the winter may have put a lot of people under extreme duress, so the amiable spring weather is a welcome change.

However, people aren’t the only ones who were tested by the frigid cold; a lot of household HVAC systems were also put to the test. Thermostats were probably turned up as mercury in the thermometers went down, and it is possible that some units sustained damage during the entire ordeal.

Saving Propane Supply: Call Toledo HVAC Specialists for Urgent Repairs

With the news of a dwindling supply of propane, households that use propane furnaces have to make the most out of what they have by ensuring their heating system is performing optimally.

Important Things to Ask Your Prospective Toledo Furnace Contractor

A trusted Toledo furnace company such as Action Heating treats every new furnace and heat pump as a major investment and takes several factors into account. First, these professional installers take stock of the space where the system and network of ducts and vents will be installed. A larger household typically requires more intricate ductwork, which is why property owners need to work with knowledgeable contractors for problem-free furnace installation. Second, the amount of maintenance required in the heating system should be considered because it simply won’t do to have a furnace that requires frequent repairs. Among other things, a furnace that breaks down very easily is a sign of inefficiency and can cost large sums of money in the long run.

Warming Up Winter: Ensuring the Efficiency of Your Toledo HVAC System

As such, local residents will need to ensure their Toledo HVAC systems are functioning well due to forecasts of colder-than-average weather conditions this season. A well-installed and maintained HVAC system means more efficient heating that ensures even temperatures throughout the house. Homeowners who may be experiencing heating problems at this time accordingly need to call on Toledo HVAC experts, such as those at Action Heating, Air Conditioning, & Electrical, to conduct inspections and undertake the necessary repair and maintenance before the coldest days of the season set in. If your household receives less heat than required, you would most likely resort to cranking up the thermostat, causing your HVAC system to work harder and consume more electricity in the process. Likewise, Toledo heating systems are expected to run longer in winter, and this, combined with system inefficiencies, can result in a serious strain on your wallet.
