Our 5-Star Service Guarantee
Our service guarantee takes the guesswork out of hiring a heating contractor. Our technicians are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional, but if for any reason you feel like your technician is giving you less than 5-star service, give us a call. We’ll make it right by dispatching an alternate technician and waiving your $79 trip fee. This is just one of the 10 guarantees that Apollo Home offers to Fairfield homeowners.
Don’t Ignore the Signs That You Need Heating Repair Service
Before your heating system breaks down entirely, it will often give you some warning. Learn to recognize the signs below and call Apollo Home if as soon as you notice any of them:
- Strange odors – If you perceive musty, acidic, metallic, or burning smells from your heating equipment, don’t wait! A component inside your unit might be overheating, or you may have a leak somewhere.
- Unusual sounds – Noises like clanks, squeals, clicking, or grinding can indicate a problem with belts, electrical switches, or debris in the system.
- On again off again – Is your furnace “short cycling?” This means that it turns on, then soon turns off, only to turn on again shortly after. If it’s doing this continuously, something is causing it to shut off and it won’t be able to heat your home adequately.
Heating Repair & 24/7 Emergency HVAC Service in Fairfield
Furnaces, heat pumps, and air handlers are complicated, expensive systems that can be dangerous to work on. Some are difficult to access, and they require specialized tools to assess and repair them. A minor oversight during a repair could lead to poor efficiency, breakdowns, or safety issues that threaten your home and family. Because of this, only a trained professional should attempt to repair your heating system. Attempting to fix it yourself or hiring a handyman who isn’t qualified for HVAC repair could seriously damage your equipment.
Apollo’s team of expert HVAC specialists is highly trained to service all makes and models of heating systems. They’re also available 24/7 to answer your call during a heating emergency. Our technicians will show up in truck fully stocked with the most common parts so they can get any repair completed swiftly. Back at the base, we also maintain a full inventory of furnaces, air handlers, heat pumps, and ductless units to meet any emergency replacement needs.
Fairfield Heating Installation & Replacement Services
Eventually, even the highest quality furnace or heat pump will need to be replaced. Most of us don’t plan for this, having faith that our old heating system will stick it out year after year. When the time comes to replace your old furnace or heat pump, Apollo Home will be there for you. We’ll start by assessing your family’s needs and your home’s features, then we’ll help you choose the best option for your home. To help you fit a new heating system in your budget, we offer financing options that allow you to spread the cost over multiple months.
Understanding Heating Rating Systems
The rating systems established for furnaces and heat pumps are very useful when deciding which model is best for your Fairfield home. At Apollo Home, we educate our customers on these rating systems so they can make the most informed decision possible.
Furnace efficiency is measured in AFUE, or Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. This number represents the amount of energy a furnace consumes that gets turned into heat. For example, a furnace with an AFUE of 70 turns 70% of the energy it consumes into heat, while the other 30% is used up in the process. Old heating systems may be as low as 58 to 70 percent AFUE. The minimum AFUE required for new furnaces is 80 percent, but high efficiency systems can have AFUEs of 90-98 percent. At Apollo Home, we offer a new gas furnace with as much as 98 percent AFUE!
Heat Pumps: HSPF
Heat pumps are rated by HSPF, which stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. It gives homeowners an idea of how efficiently a heat pump heats a home over the span of a heating season. Simply put, it’s the number calculated when dividing the heat produced by the electricity consumed. The higher the number, the more efficient the heat pump. The current required minimum is 7.7, but anything between 8 and 10 is considered energy-efficient. Some heat pumps have HSPFs over 10.
Wi-Fi and Smart Thermostats for Your Fairfield Home
Your thermostat plays a big role in your heating system’s efficiency. The more control you have over your heating and cooling system, the more you can tailor it to fit your needs without wasting energy. Some smart thermostats allow for remote temperature adjustments, while others can even alert you to possible HVAC malfunctions or provide usage reports
Apollo Home offers smart thermostats, including the popular Nest brand. With Wi-Fi access, Nest and other smart thermostats allow for incredibly specific programming to give you maximum control over your home’s heating and cooling.
How long does a furnace last?
A well-maintained furnace can last 10-15 years before needing replacement.
Do I really need a furnace tune-up every year?
Yes! Not only does a furnace tune-up improve the performance and efficiency of your furnace, but most manufacturer warranties require annual service to maintain the warranty.
How often should I replace my furnace filter?
It’s recommended to change typical 1-2 inch filters every three months for the highest system efficiency.
How do I know I need furnace repair services?
You should call for furnace repair services if:
- Your system is making strange noises
- You experience lower heating levels
- You experience lower airflow
- Your system is short-cycling
- Your system isn’t starting
Preventative Maintenance for Heating Systems in Fairfield
Routine maintenance is the best way to reduce the risk of malfunctions or breakdowns. It also helps your system run as efficiently as possible, saving you money on energy and extending the life of your unit. Maintenance is so important that some warranties on furnaces and heat pumps specify that you must show evidence of routine maintenance for you warranty to remain valid.
At Apollo Home, we service all brands of furnaces, heat pumps, boilers, and ductless mini-split units, as well as Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) products like whole-house humidifiers and air cleaners. Our skilled technicians will assesses your system through a complete inspection, then test, clean, and lubricate its parts. They’ll be able to catch any pending issues before they become problems, saving you potential headaches and repair costs!
