Furnace repair in and around Fargo, North Dakota.

Home > Services > Furnace Services

The furnace is one of the most important components in your home, especially in the cold season. Like every appliance, regular maintenance and repair is vital to making sure your unit is working safely and efficiently. If you defer maintenance for too long, your furnace could become costly to run, cause dangerous issues such as carbon monoxide in the system and even break down.

A properly maintained system delivers maximum heat output while saving energy. Most importantly, it keeps your home warm and comfortable when you need it the most. At Valley Service, we understand the need to be proactive about system maintenance and have been offering professional furnace repair in Fargo, ND for over 40 years.  

Furnace Repair in Fargo, ND

Because of North Dakota’s position in the center of North America, temperatures usually hit extreme highs and lows. Winters in the Fargo-Moorhead area can be especially cold, and making sure your home is well prepared for the cold is vital.

But you shouldn’t wait until the cold approaches to make sure your furnace is operating safely. Years of experience in furnace installation and heater repair have shown that preparations for the cold season should start when the weather is still warm or mild. That’s as early as the beginning of fall. A well-maintained heating system is less likely to break down when you need it most and keeps your furnace service costs low.

Symptoms of Furnace Issues

Regular maintenance of your furnace helps to keep it running efficiently, but like all appliances, wear and tear is expected. A sudden furnace break down can be a miserable event, and it can be a chilly wait as your furnace is repaired or replaced. Diagnosing a failing furnace can save you from all this.

There are a few warning signs that can let you know when it’s time to call your technician.

Unusual Noises

Rumbling, squeaking and rattling sounds from your furnace are a sign that something is wrong. The sounds may indicate a mechanical problem, airflow reductions or a clogged burner. In this case, it’s best to call a professional, otherwise, you may void the warranty on the appliance or accidentally cause a larger problem.

Leaks of Pools of Water Around the Unit

A leaky furnace could be caused by a myriad of issues. Its tubing could be damaged, broken or not functioning properly, causing the water from the condensation to leak; a clogged drain could be preventing water drainage from the unit; the secondary heat exchanger could be faulty or the humidifier could have a problem. Whatever the cause, you will need a specific diagnosis from a technician. 

Limited Airflow

Improper airflow from your furnace could indicate a clogged filter due to dirt or installation of the wrong type of filter for the furnace model. It’s best to schedule a furnace cleaning service to keep everything in top shape and rule out other possible causes. 

Furnace Cleaning and Maintenance

Valley Service recommends getting your furnace serviced at least once or twice per year. Ideally, before and after winter. Why?

  • A well-maintained furnace lasts longer. Regular service can keep a furnace up and running for up to 20 years. 
  • Efficiency will be improved. Home heating systems that aren't properly maintained may be less than 50 percent efficient.
  • It is cost-effective. A poorly maintained system is likely to keep breaking down which will drive up your furnace service costs. Regular maintenance prevents this. Additionally, a furnace that works at maximum efficiency helps to keep your energy bill low.
