Answers to the Questions You’re Asking

Answers to the Questions You’re Asking

Masters Heating & Cooling is proud to serve all of Northern Indiana with five locations. Through the years of providing furnace repair in Fort Wayne, Decatur, Angola, Greenwood, and Indianapolis, our clients have asked us many questions about their HVAC systems. Here are some of the questions we hear most often. How often should I have my home heating system serviced? Masters recommends an annual tune-up and preventive maintenance for your home heating system. We are not talking about just changing a filter. Our expert technicians will perform a 17-point inspection to make sure everything is ready for another cold Indiana winter. While we’re on the subject of HVAC work in Fort Wayne, the same thing is true for your air conditioning. Regular maintenance will keep both systems operating at peak efficiency and extend the life of your systems. I’m worried about the dangers of carbon monoxide. I have a CO detector but I’m not sure where it should be installed? First, Masters appreciates your efforts to protect your family from this silent killer. Carbon monoxide poisoning kills more than 400 people on average every year. Any gas burning device; furnaces, water heaters, boilers, can pose a danger if they are not properly maintained. For true safety, a single detector really isn’t enough. The experts recommend having one on every floor of your home. There should be one close to every sleeping area so the alarm can be heard clearly. Your CO detector will get the best reading if you mount it about five feet above the floor. If you have an attached garage there should be a detector in the house near the door to the garage. A running car in the garage can quickly fill the house with carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide detectors are good at what they do, detecting dangerous levels of the gas, but they do not detect low levels of CO. There is research showing long-term exposure to low levels of carbon monoxide can also be dangerous. You may want to consider using the more sophisticated CO monitors. They show the amount […]

Is your house haunted with hot and cold spots?

Is your house haunted with hot and cold spots?

Don’t let the Halloween ghosts and goblins lead to a conversation like this in your home: “Oh look honey. Isn’t that cute. Little Becky has dressed up like the Abominable Snowman for Halloween.” Leading Becky to say, with a slight hint of exasperation, “I’m all bundled up because it’s freezing in my room!” Hot and cold spots are a real problem in many homes. Halloween is a great time to find the gremlins causing the problem in your home. Call Masters Heating & Cooling because they are the HVAC ghostbusters for Fort Wayne, Angola, Decatur, Greenwood, Indianapolis and all points in between. The top priority for our Masters technicians is to find the cause, or else you could be throwing good money after bad. Maybe the monster causing the uneven heating or cooling is hiding in the ductwork. Leaky ducts, or uninsulated ducts, can rob your heating and cooling systems of efficiency. In some cases, the ductwork design may be limiting air flow to certain rooms. These are all problems our Masters can solve for you. It’s also possible your heating and cooling systems are just a ghost of what they used to be, making your home uncomfortable. If another company has told you it’s time to replace your furnace or air conditioner, don’t just take their word for it. Masters can put your mind at ease with a free second opinion to make sure that prognosis is correct. Replacing a home comfort system doesn’t have to be a spooky experience. Right now Trane, the industry leader in toughness and reliability, has a special replacement offer. Call Masters now to find out how much money you can save.   So please, don’t make little Becky stay bundled up like Abominable Snowman after Halloween just to stay warm. Call Masters Heating & Cooling now and we will make sure your home is no longer haunted by hot and cold spots. And remember, Halloween, October 31, is the last day for the Catch Me In Pink™ campaign so call and schedule your service now. When you post your photo […]
