Furnace Repair Services
Do you hear weird noises in your home such as banging or whistling? Maybe there are cold or hot spots in your house, or it smells like rotten eggs. You could even be seeing a higher than average or rising energy bill. All of these are signs that your furnace needs to be repaired.
We offer exceptional furnace and heating repair services to homeowners in areas such as Jersey City, Haverstraw, Newark, Pomona, Tom’s River, Lakewood, and Sloatsburg. Our team has experience with a variety of furnace brands and models. Common furnace problems include bad airflow in your home, strange smells, activation issues, and strange noises. Our technicians will perform an inspection of your furnace to diagnose and resolve the issue. So no matter what problem you’re facing, we can handle it.
7 Types of Furnace Noises
A fully functioning furnace is quiet and should be unnoticeable when it’s in use. Some noise is normal—a pop or click when it first turns on, and a dull hum as it works. Older furnaces can emit more noise than newer ones. But none of these noises should be disruptive to your family. If your furnace is making any one of the following noises, it’s time to get a professional heating technician to help.
1. Grinding or Scraping Sounds
Hearing a grinding or scraping sound? This could mean dry bearings within the blower motor. Regularly lubricating these bearings will ensure the furnace is properly maintained.
2. Rumbling Noises
If you hear a loud rumbling sound after a heating cycle is complete, this is a sign that fuel is continuing to burn in the combustion chamber. This could lead to serious complications to the burners, flame sensors, and pilot light. It also increases the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning, which is why it is so important to be aware of these unusual noises and what they mean.
We offer reliable heating repair services for malfunctioning furnaces in areas such as Jersey City, Pomona, Paterson, Haverstraw, and Newark. Our team will perform an inspection of your heating system to confirm the source of the strange noises. We will fix the damaged components to eliminate rumbling noises in your system.
3. Squealing Sounds
Various issues with the blower motor can cause that squealing noise you’re hearing. One common cause is a loose belt, but there could be other issues at play.
4. Thumping Noises
Thumping sounds are a sign of an unbalanced motor or blower wheel. These are two major furnace parts, so get this checked out by a professional for repair right away.
5. Popping or Banging Sounds
You might hear pops or bangs when the furnace begins a cycle. Warm air hitting the cold metal of the air ducts can cause the material to expand and make noises. If the popping sounds are extremely loud, the burners in your system might be dirty.
Our technicians offer exceptional heating repair services and will help you clean the burners in your furnace to prevent gas accumulation, a cracked heat exchanger, and other issues.
6. Humming Noises
Louder than usual humming can indicate an issue with the fan or capacitor. Your furnace is supposed to hum as it runs, but keep an ear open for it being louder than usual or hearing it when the furnace is off.
7. Clicking Sounds
Clicking is normal when the furnace turns on and off, but not during the cycle. This can mean there’s an issue with the compressor or control panel.

3 Types of Heat Pump Problems
The three main problems we encounter with heat pumps include:
1. Heat Pump Does Not Run
If your heat pump is not working, it could be a power issue. Make sure it’s receiving power by checking the socket is switched on. It could also be a blown fuse. If this is the case, simply reset or replace the fuse. Alternatively, it could be your thermostat. Your thermostat might need adjustment or it might need to be replaced.
2. Not Heating or Cooling Correctly
If your thermostat is set to the temperature you want and your heat pump is not working, check the vent cover. If this is closed, it will prevent air circulation. A blocked air duct will also prevent proper heating and cooling. You also want to make sure the coils are clean because dirt can accumulate and clog the coils.
Our technicians offer credible heating repair services for broken heat pump systems in areas such as Newark, Sloatsburg, Tom’s River, Haverstraw, Jersey City, and Pomona. Our team will disassemble and analyze your heat pump to determine why it is not heating or cooling your home correctly.
3. Blower Not Working
A broken belt could prevent the heat pump blower from functioning. It’s difficult to repair a broken belt so buying a new one will ensure that the connection between the pump blower and the motor is functioning. Alternatively, your heat pump might be frozen due to harsh weather conditions. You might need to defrost the condenser unit.
Boiler Repair Services
If you need a boiler repair or a tune-up, look no further. We will inspect, adjust, and test your boiler to make sure it is working properly. Getting your boiler tuned up can prevent breakdowns and costly repairs down the road and overall maximizes its lifespan.

Updates to the Regional HVAC Equipment Efficiency and Testing Standards
Effective January 1, 2023, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) will update its efficiency and testing standards for residential and commercial HVAC equipment. All regulatory changes will differ by product type and region. Since the updated standards will result in price increases across all HVAC contractors, now is the time to buy the equipment you need for your home or business.
The minimum efficiency standards for residential and commercial air conditioners and heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will increase production efficiency and national energy savings while decreasing national energy consumption.
Northern U.S. & Canada
All split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured after January 1, 2023, must meet the updated standards. However, split-system air conditioners, split-system heat pumps, and packaged units manufactured before January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 13 SEER to 15 SEER in these regions.
Split-system air conditioners manufactured before January 1, 2023, can’t be installed once the updated standards take effect. All installations of products that don’t meet the new standards must be completed by December 31, 2022. However, split-system heat pumps, single-packaged air conditioners, and single-packaged heat pumps manufactured after January 1, 2023, can be installed indefinitely. The efficiency rating for air conditioners will increase from 14 SEER to 15 SEER in both the Southwest and Southeast regions.
In addition to higher minimum efficiency standards, the M1 testing procedures used for residential and 3 to 5-ton light commercial, single-phase equipment manufactured on or after January 1, 2023, will increase. This change will produce more accurate SEER, EER, and HSPF efficiency ratings. Manufacturers will be required to re-test equipment using the new M1 Standard requirements as well as publish equipment efficiency ratings using the new efficiency metrics of SEER2, EER2, and HSPF2.
