Another Satisfied Customer

"The whole Bell Brothers experience was amazing. I filled out an online form for a free furnace replacement estimate and got a call from LJ. We made an appointment for him to come to my house and sat and talked through our options. He was very detailed and upfront about everything and we decided to do a whole system replacement because of the great value. Maison, Loren, and John showed up the day of the appointment right on time and worked hard all day. I could not be more satisfied with the work that they did and their friendliness. They did amazing work and cleaned up more than they needed to. Bell Brothers will have my business for years to come."

Frequently Asked Questions

A typical residential install takes one working day (about eight hours).

Yes. Furnace maintenance plans have been shown to maximize performance and life span while minimizing the chances for an expensive repair later. Properly maintained furnaces:

  • Deliver up to 40% savings on heating and cooling costs compared to unmaintained systems
  • Reduce your carbon footprint by 30%
  • Help ensure proper indoor humidity levels
  • Operate safely and at peak performance
  • Minimize the chances of being inconvenienced and stressed by needing emergency service

Here are a few common reasons:

  • It can’t keep up with the cold and just runs all the time
  • The electronic system (including the thermostat) that tells it to shut off isn’t functioning
  • The furnace is off, but the fan continues to run (be sure your fan setting on your thermostat is set to “Auto”; if it’s set to “ON”, the fan will run all the time)

A big fan inside the furnace circulates the warm air around your house. If it’s not blowing, most likely either the fan motor is broken or the systems that tell it to come on are malfunctioning. Be sure the fan is set to “On” or “Auto” on your thermostat before calling for help.

There could be many reasons your furnace is not functioning, from a blown fuse in your house to a major mechanical issue. A few things to check before you call us for help:

  • Thermostat says the furnace is on; it’s easy for it to get switched off accidentally
  • The breaker in the house’s electrical box that serves your furnace hasn’t popped off
  • The filter is relatively clean; furnaces will shut themselves down if the filter is clogged

If it’s still not running right after checking all of that, give us a call.
