Furnace & Heating Repair in Dallas-Ft.Worth
How do you find a reliable furnace repair contractor in Dallas, TX?
Well, there’s a number of things you should do. The first is to learn about their reputation from as many 3rd party resources as possible.
With Efficient Home Solutions, we have an “A” rating with the BBB. Reviewers at Customer Lobby gave us a perfect 5-star rating – and that’s after 115 reviews (and counting). Finally, Google “EHS HVAC Dallas” and read the glowing reviews there.
Second, you want someone with a no-pressure, customer-first service process. It’s rare to find this type of service with any contractor.
At EHS, we never pressure you to make a certain decision. You get all the information necessary so you can make the best decision for your goals and budget. You may need a simple furnace repair, but then again it may make sense for you to have a new furnace too. Also, our owner loves to be involved in as many customer interactions as possible. And if you do install a new furnace, you get follow-up calls, training (if needed), and a quality control check to make sure everything was installed to achieve efficient and reliable performance.
After reputation and service, you want a furnace repair contractor that really understands the problem. For example, say you notice your home isn’t as warm as it should be. That might indicate a problem with your furnace that needs repair (you might call this a “heater repair” or “heat pump repair” in your own words). But, it could also mean you don’t have enough insulation in your attic. Or you might have the wrong size of furnace heating your home.
Many contractors don’t take problems like these into consideration, which guarantees you’ll continue to have furnace problems. But Efficient Home Solutions does – and you get a list of options to help you decide which fix to make.

Dallas, TX Furnace, Heater, & Heat Pump Repair Frequently Asked Questions – Smart Answers to Tough Questions
Should I repair or replace?
- That’s always a tough question! You should definitely replace your furnace if it’s 15 years old or older. And generally, if you calculate your replacement costs and find your repairs will cost more than 1/3 of replacing, you’re better off replacing. If the problem presents an immediate safety hazard, liked a cracked heat exchanger which could leak poisonous carbon monoxide, replacing is the obvious choice.
- Remember, there’s absolutely no pressure to buy from us! Make your decision when you’re ready – financing is available if you need it.
Is my furnace under warranty?
- Find the label on the outside of your furnace and see if it has the manufacture date. Generally, if equipment is less than 5 years old, it’s under warranty. But that’s not a guarantee! Hopefully you saved all the information you got from the installing contractor. Call your manufacturer to make sure your furnace is under warranty.
I hear popping sounds coming from my ductwork when the furnace starts and stops – what causes that?
- Usually it means you have more air flowing through your ductwork than it’s designed to handle. You can get plenty of loud and obnoxious noise, as well as ventilation and air quality problems. It’s definitely a problem that needs repair.
What maintenance can I do on my furnace?
- You can do some small things, and they do help you save some repair costs over the life of your furnace. First, turn off your furnace. Then remove the door to get access to the inside of the unit and remove the burner cover (if there is one). Turn the power switch on and watch the flames. They should be even in size and blue. If they’re yellow, that means you have dirty burners (but don’t clean them yourself!).
- You can also change the air filter about every 1-3 months. Check your owner’s manual for specific recommendations. Buying an expensive, high-efficiency filter may actually restrict more airflow, which strains the blower’s motor and cuts your furnace’s efficiency!
Are gas or electric furnaces more efficient?
- Electric furnaces are reasonably efficient, but typically gas furnaces are even more efficient. Electric heaters cost about 1/3 – 1/2 as much as their gas counterparts, but they use more energy over the long run. You may want to explore a heat pump option if gas is unavailable in your home.
Does gas or electric harm the environment more?
- If this is a concern for you, you should again go with gas. Much of our electric energy is produced by highly inefficient coal power plants, which have an efficiency of about 30% (according to the EPA). Producing natural gas does release greenhouse gases and other pollutants into our atmosphere. But, it burns so much cleaner than coal that it causes much less overall damage to the environment.
