Sometimes, it doesn’t take a complete system failure before deciding it’s time to repair a furnace. Minor issues have the potential to pile up and cause major problems with a furnace. Our team is ready to inspect your system and help you decide if it’s time to repair it, especially if you’ve noticed the cost of your energy bills increasing.
Signs your furnace needs repairs include the following:
- A lack of hot air
- It’s hard to start

Heating Frequently Asked Questions
- Different conditions in the house determine how often the filter needs to be changed, such as pets, cigarette smoke, dust etc. We recommend checking your filter every 2 months to gauge how often it needs replacement.
The average life of a furnace is around 20 years with routine maintenance. If your unit is around this age, it may be more cost effective to have it replaced versus keeping up with repairs.
New Mexico gas is responsible for the gas line up to the meter. Any appliances or lines after the meter are the responsibility of the homeowner. We can check your appliances for any code violations and depending on your situation, the problem may be corrected with a repair. Some situations require the replacement of the appliance in question.
A single-stage furnace has just one gear when it runs. A two-stage furnace has a low gear and a high gear. A two-stage furnace will run in a lower gear in milder weather versus a single stage which will run in a higher gear.
Load calculations are used to determine the size of a furnace needed to heat your home. They take into account total square footage, home construction, and the weather conditions of the area. Furnaces are usually sized with the coldest days of the year in mind. With New Mexico’s mild weather, a furnace running at full capacity is not always necessary. That’s where a two-stage furnace comes in. Two-stage furnaces start in a lower stage of heat which uses less gas and electricity thus cutting down on utility costs. On days where the demand for heat is greater, the furnace will run at full capacity
We recommend checking your filter as the first step for any issues with your furnace. If it is dirty, change it and give it a day to see if it improves. If not, give us a call to troubleshoot the unit.
