In our last post, we talked about the importance of scheduling heating maintenance during the fall so you’re prepared for the coming winter. Maintenance does have its limits, however. At some point, the furnace that warms your home and keeps your family safe during cold weather will move beyond where repairs and regular maintenance will do much good. Time for a new furnace.
Is this the fall when you decide to stop maintaining or repairing your furnace and instead invest in a new one? We’ll look at some of the factors that can help you decide about a furnace replacement in Hillsboro, OH.

Do you want to think about your home heating system right now? Probably not because the weather is still warm during these fading days of summer—and we may even have some more seriously hot days ahead. But the best time to think about your heating system is when you don’t immediately need it. It’s easy for you to schedule service for your heater to ensure that it will run its best, and it’s far better than making an emergency call in the middle of January.
The service we recommend you arrange for now is regular heating maintenance. Routine HVAC maintenance is one of the most important services that we offer because it does so much to help our customers to get the most from their heating systems while spending the least.
During the heat of the end of summer, it’s more important than ever to keep a close watch for potential problems with your air conditioning system. Or, as we’ll talk about specifically in this post, to keep an open ear for potential problems. Strange sounds are a common side effect of air conditioning malfunctions, so if you know what to listen for, you can often get an early warning that it’s time to call our technicians for air conditioning repair in Hillsboro, OH.
We’ll go over the most common repair warning sounds you may hear from your AC.
If we had to limit ourselves to one piece of advice to give to our customers about air conditioning in Hillsboro, OH, it would be this: Always change the air filter for the AC every 1 to 3 months when the system is regularly working. It’s not a difficult job. The filter goes in a slot next to the blower on the HVAC cabinet, and you only have to slide out the old filter and slide a new one in its place (making sure the directional arrows line up). But many homeowners aren’t aware of the importance of this job and frequently forget to do it.
Leaving a dirty air filter in place creates numerous, easily avoidable problems. Below we’re going to look at the reasons it’s important to keep up with routine air filter changes.
One of the eternal questions when it comes to air conditioning systems is when to stop repairing an AC and instead replace it. You can keep a central air conditioner running for many years with professional repairs, but at a certain point, further repairs will be throwing away money better spent on a new system.
When is it best to leave aside repairs and get a new air conditioner? There’s no single answer, but our expert HVAC team can give you guidelines. After all, every one of our employees receives over 200 hours of training per year—they know ACs and they know how best to help customers.
When it comes to having your home’s air conditioning system repaired, you want to act at the earliest indication something isn’t right. Otherwise, you may end up with an air conditioner that doesn’t work at all. The sooner you call our professionals for air conditioning repair in Hillsboro, OH, the sooner you can relax knowing that the AC will keep delivering comfort to your home without trouble.
Some of the warning signs from an air conditioner are clear, such as when the house won’t get cool enough no matter how you set the thermostat. Others are less obvious, and we’ve listed some of these trickier signs below. Call us to diagnose the trouble and get your air conditioning system in great shape.
