Signs That Mean You Shouldn’t Wait to Get Heating Repair Service
Your furnace or heat pump can’t talk to let you know there’s a problem, but it can display a few different warning signs. If you notice any of the signs listed below, call Apollo Home right away for a heating system inspection:
- Strange odors – If you smell musty, acidic, metallic, or burning odors 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 before its cycle is complete and it won’t be able to heat your home adequately.

Heating Rating Systems Explained
At Apollo Home, we seek to educate our customers on the rating systems established for heating systems. This helps them make an informed decision when choosing a new furnace or heat pump.
Furnace performance is measured with AFUE
AFUE stands for Annual Fuel Utilization Efficiency. AFUE represents the amount of energy used by a furnace that actually 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 can 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 pump performance is measured with HSPF
HSPF stands for Heating Seasonal Performance Factor. It gives homeowners an idea of how efficiently a heat pump heats a home over an entire 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 Mason Home
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.
This can help you make your heating and cooling even more efficient, since you’ll be able to adjust it precisely to your needs. You can set your thermostat to maintain comfortable temperatures when you’re home, then automatically use less energy when you’re at work or sleeping. Some smart thermostats let you adjust your home’s temperature remotely, while others can even alert you to possible HVAC malfunctions or provide usage reports. This gives you an eye on your HVAC system so that you can have small repairs done before they become bigger problems.
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
