New Haven Furnace Repair & Maintenance
Committed to Keeping Your Family Cozy All Winter Long
A furnace that works properly means lower utility bills, less frequent servicing, and reliable home comfort. When it comes to having a heater that works when you need it to, one of the most important things a homeowner can do is schedule routine maintenance throughout the heater's lifespan.
At Modern Heating and Air Conditioning, we take great pride in offering top-quality New Haven furnace maintenance and repair services that you can depend on. We work tirelessly to ensure that our customers are never left out in the cold.
Warning Signs for Heating Systems
A home’s heating system is easy to forget about – until it stops working. To catch potential problems before they become an emergency, watch out for the warning signs of a broken furnace.
If you notice any of the following, you may need to contact a furnace repair technician:
- Unusual or excessive noises: While furnaces can tend to be noisy when operating normally, be on the lookout for certain sounds like squealing. Squealing can indicate the need for a belt replacement. Grinding and groaning sounds are also indicators that parts need to be replaced.
- Unresponsive thermostat: This could indicate that your furnace cannot meet the demand of your thermostat. But you could also have a broken thermostat.
- Increasing energy bills: If your heating bill is higher than normal, an overworked and under-maintained furnace could be the culprit.
- The age of your unit: If your unit is 15-20 years old, it has neared or passed its normal lifespan. You will need to service it more often and prepare for a replacement in case of total failure.
- Yellow burner flame: If your pilot light is yellow, you may have a carbon monoxide problem. Your burner should always be bright blue. Any other color or a flickering flame likely indicates a major safety hazard. Call your technician right away.
- Recent repairs: A furnace that has failed will likely fail again. The best way to avoid continual furnace repairs is to receive regular maintenance.
What Do Technicians Actually Do During a Tune-Up?
Depending on the contractor, the actual services performed will vary, but a qualified heating contractor will know which services your Southern Connecticut home’s heating unit needs to receive annually. Our professionals will perform the following services during any heating tune-up:
- Clean heating elements and heat exchanger
- Clean and adjust the burner assembly
- Lubricate all moving parts
- Adjust operating pressures
- Monitor flue draft
- Clean or replace air filters (this should be performed once a month)
- Check gas supply for leaks
- Measure temperature changes
- Clean ignition assembly
- And more!

When & Why to Replace the Furnace Nozzle
It is important to replace a furnace nozzle if there are signs of corrosion on the metal surface that could reduce efficiency. Replacement is also necessary if clogs have formed or if the metal is warped or pushed out of alignment. It is best to replace a nozzle before every cold season.
