Being without heat in the dead of a Schererville winter is more than inconvenient; it is downright uncomfortable. In fact, if your water heater is broken or your furnace stops working, piling on the layers and blankets will help, but nothing but repairs will truly remedy the situation. At Van Drunen Heating & Air Conditioning, we have the tools and skill set necessary to make sure your family stays warm throughout even the coldest of seasons.
Water heaters do exactly what their name implies: heat water, which is then distributed through your home via pipes for use in kitchens and bathrooms. Water heaters are no doubt one of the most important aspects of comfort for homeowners, and yet most homeowners fail to service their water heaters on a regular basis, leading to preventable breakdowns over time.
Water heaters are prone to a number of problems, especially when they are ignored. One of the most common problems is known as scale build up, or scaling. This happens when sediments are deposited at the bottom of a tank, and minerals build up within the hot water. As a result of scale build up, a water heater’s lifespan is reduced and the metal is damaged.
We have seen countless scaling problems before, as well as myriad other water heater issues, and know exactly how to diagnose and repair a problem. We can also help you to choose a more efficient system if yours is on its last leg, such as a tankless water heater.
We can install, repair, and replace gas, oil, and electric furnaces in homes in Schererville. While many furnaces will last for just over two decades, some may need replacement at an earlier date. When you call us for repairs, we will guide you through common furnace complications and troubleshooting (i.e. Are you sure the thermostat is turned to heat? Have your furnace filters been changed recently? Is something off with your home’s circuit breaker?). If none of these quick fixes work, we are your go-to for any maintenance or part replacements.
Of course, we also can repair or replace other parts of a furnace system, such as the ducts that heated air travels through. Cracked or broken ducts can result in serious heat loss, which can be expensive and add up each month.
Boilers use heated water to warm your home, which can be very efficient, and provide sufficient warmth. While boilers are very dependable home heating systems, they do need maintenance, and may need repairs over time. Some of the most common boiler breakdowns include boiler water leaks, a pilot light that will not stay lit, scale build up, and more.
