Gas Furnaces Installation and Repair in Central Indiana

Gas furnaces are a specific type of furnace that is part of a heating system within the HVAC system. Your HVAC, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system regulates the temperature in your home. The homeowner is responsible for taking care of the HVAC. This includes cleaning it, replacing filters, handling any repair needed, and much more to ensure it is running with optimal efficiency. 

Gas furnaces are efficient and economically sound, especially in Indiana since the state has some of the lowest gas prices in the country. Natural gas is stored in a tank that can be above ground or buried below ground. The gas is used to ignite the furnace’s burner. The burner then transfers heat to air that is coming through the heat exchanger. This heated air is then routed throughout the home.

Central Indiana, including Greenwood, Franklin, and Columbus, has various available types of furnaces for residents to choose from. Most of the state’s households have a standard forced-air furnace. A forced-air heating system means that air is used as the heat transfer channel. These types of furnaces rely on air ducts, vents, and plenums to distribute air. A gas furnace is a type of forced-air heating system.

What Are The Other Types of Furnaces?

Aside from gas furnaces, there are several other types of furnace. These different types include:

  • Oil furnaces: This type of furnace generally costs less than a gas furnace but has lower efficiency when getting the job done. A heat exchanger heats cold air as it passes through. Air ducts then distribute the warm air throughout the space. 
  • Electric furnaces: While this type of furnace can cost less than a gas furnace initially, they end up costing more month-to-month due to electricity use. This type of furnace also tends to last longer than gas furnaces. Elements that are exposed heat the air, and the ducts, then distribute the warm air. 
  • Propane furnaces: These furnaces are fueled by propane. Tanks storing propane can be above ground or buried in the ground. The propane ignites the furnace’s burner, which transfers heat to the air that is coming through a heat exchange. The warm air is then directed throughout the home, warming it.

How To Install A Gas Furnace?

Before installation, finding the correct size furnace for the area you are looking to heat is crucial. If the furnace isn’t the right size, it won’t run as efficiently as it should. The right size depends on the square footage of the site and the climate of the geographical location. If the location is generally colder, the furnace must work harder and longer in order to be heating well. We recommend working with a Johnson professional technician to find the right furnace for your area. 

Evaluate the cleanliness of your vents and ducts to ensure the gas furnace that is being installed will work as efficiently as possible. If ducts aren’t clean or sealed well enough, then that could cause you to be wasting money on energy bills. Johnson Heating & Cooling offers furnace maintenance services in the Central Indiana area. 

Installing a thermostat with your furnace will make things easier. You can easily adjust the temperature of the space. Be sure the thermostat is thoroughly maintained for optimum efficiency in order to gain the best benefits from its use. 

What Do Gas Furnaces Need Repaired?

There is nothing more stressful and outraging than your furnace going out in the middle of winter when it is needed the most. It can be uncomfortable, but it can also become a significant problem for you, your family, your property, and your budget. Maintenance is the best way to ensure that your furnace is in the best shape possible to prevent having to make any emergency repairs. 

While some problems can seem evident—such as a vent clogged with debris—these facets can be complicated to repair and require expert service, especially when the health of you and your family is in question. You can call the experts here at Johnson Heating & Cooling for Emergency 24-hour Furnace Repair services in Central Indiana to get the furnace inspected. You can trust us to dispatch an associate any time, day or night, to evaluate and make repairs. 

Keep up with the age of your furnace. Just like most things, your furnace has a life expectancy. Some types of furnaces last long, while others last for a shorter period. Gas furnaces typically last between 15 and 20 years, as long as they are maintained well.

How To Identify Potential Problems With Gas Furnaces?

The most common problem with gas furnaces, and any other furnace that homeowners may deal with, is that the furnace is not producing heat. It’s important first to make sure the thermostat is on. If it is and there is still no heat being produced, you can try resetting the home circuit breaker. There could be a tripped or blown circuit breaker or fuse, which is causing problems. 

If the furnace is producing heat, but not enough or not as much as it has in the past, you may need to check the filter. The air filter should be clean and in good condition for the furnace to work efficiently. Check to see if the filter needs to be cleaned or replaced. 

Gas furnaces sometimes have a problem with the blower. The blower is situated between the furnace and the return ductwork. The blower sends the air into the heat exchanger, which then warms the air. A gas furnace blower shouldn’t constantly be running, so if you hear it running continuously, then it may need to be checked out, and you may need to repair it. 

While you may be able to hear your heating system, some noises could be cause for concern and repair. Noises that sound like rumbling, squeaking, or rattling could indicate a problem inside the system. The problem could be related to the mechanics of the system, issues with airflow, or a clogged burner. There are several reasons for noises, so it may be best to get it looked at by professionals. 

With gas furnaces, you’ll want to make sure there are no issues with your gas lines. Problems with gas lines can cause inefficiency. It could also cause gas leaks which can become very dangerous if not taken care of. If you smell gas or suspect a gas leak at all, immediately call your gas utility company and vacate the premises.
