    furnace services springfield il

    Furnaces are the most common type of heating systems found in homes today. They work by burning fuel or using electricity to heat air, and they utilize a ventilation system to distribute that air evenly throughout the home. However, these systems are just as prone to breaking as any other type of HVAC system, and our team has the knowledge needed to help commercial and residential customers, providing repairs to all makes and models. Read below about simple things you can do to troubleshoot your unit if you’re having problems.

  • Furnace Troubleshooting

    1. Make sure the thermostat is set to “heat.” This could be the reason behind a unit that’s not working or not producing hot air.
    2. Check the furnace switch. This switch controls the power supply to the entire system. It may have been switched off accidentally, which would leave your system without power.
    1. Change the filter. When the filter clogs, it causes the system to work harder, causing shutdowns, temperature problems, and more.
    2. Check the circuit breaker. Another problem could be the circuit breaker being tripped, which would also cut the power supply to the entire system.

  • Wireless Control Unit – conveniently allows you to adjust temperature, fan speed and more at the touch of a button.

    If you are building a new home, providing comfort to additional rooms or have an older home that lacks the space to install ductwork, ductless mini splits are ideal. But how does it work without ducts? A ductless system is a type of heat pump, which is an air conditioning system that can change the direction it works, absorbing heat from the outdoors and using blower fans to move it indoors. Similar to a window a/c unit, it uses outside air and a blower fan to cool or heat air within your home. A series of air handlers are mounted on your walls, each containing a blower and refrigerant coil. A refrigerant line and condensate line goes through a small hole in the wall behind the blower and connects to an outside unit. Every blower hooks up to a single unit, which is the location of where the heat is either exhausted (cooling) or absorbed (heating).

  • What Is a Geothermal System?

    geothermal heating services provided near springfield il

    We all know that in the Midwest, the temperature can fluctuate greatly depending on the day, the time of the day, and the season. However, the temperature below the earth’s surface stays relatively constant throughout the year. Allowing you to utilize that energy to heat and cool your home efficiently. It works through a series of loops that are buried underground or underwater (if you have a pond). Those coils perform the transfer of energy from the ground to the air that gets distributed through your home.

  • What Are the Benefits of a Geothermal System?

    • Could save up to 70% off a utility bill
    • Utilizes 25% - 50% less energy
    • The unit is quite and located fully indoors
    • Installs in a variety of ways and fits most households
    • Durable and highly reliable
    • Environmentally friendly heating and cooling option
  • Will a Geothermal Unit Fit in My Yard?

    Yes. Geothermal units have a range of variations, meaning they can be installed in just about any yard. Check out the types of systems that we can install for you, below!

    • Open-Loop System – This means the loop is open and utilizes water that flows through the loops to conduct the heat transfer.
    • Closed-Loop System – This means that the loops are closed, the liquid inside isn’t water, it’s something else that effectively transfers heat.
    • Vertical Loop System – This means that that loops are inserted into the ground vertically. These are good for yards with little space.
    • Horizontal Loop System – This means that the loops are inserted into the ground horizontally and are good for yards with a lot of space.
    • Pond Loop System –This means the loops are placed under water and utilize the temperature of the water to regulate the temperature of your home.
