Furnace Services in Durham & Chapel Hill, NC

When you walk into a heated home, chances are that the appliance responsible for keeping it warm is a furnace. Furnaces are the most common heaters in the U.S. for one important reason: they work! Furnaces are generally reliable and prompt, and the cost of installation tends to be lower than that of installing a similarly sized alternative whole-home heating system.


Our specialists know that furnace installation involves a lot of time and thought. You don’t want to simply look for the best deal without considering the brand of the system, the efficiency rating, or its size. Our professionals will take careful steps to determine the necessary size of your new heating system because they know that one that is too large or too small can cause you a lot of problems in the future.

After our experts discuss your budgetary requirements, they will recommend an efficient system, specifically tailored to your home. Following installation, our professionals will make sure that your furnace is functioning correctly and safely.


Look for the signs that your heating system is in trouble so that you can schedule services ASAP. A furnace in need of repair can eventually spiral into a breakdown. Your system will no longer be able to run correctly due to a defective component, and the other parts may become worn out in an attempt to overcompensate.

Call an expert if you notice high bills, excessive noise, low temperatures, or strange smells (and turn off the heater immediately). You may also find out that you need furnace repairs during one of our comprehensive maintenance services, which we recommend annually to all customers.


An electric furnace is an excellent option for people without access to a natural gas line. They are cost–effective and low maintenance, and in our area, they are not very expensive to run, especially if you purchase a system with a higher efficiency rating.


The power, efficiency, and convenience of gas furnaces make them the most popular systems around. Chances are that you have one in your home, so when your system needs repairs or maintenance, you can trust our experienced staff to do the job right the first time. If you need a new heating system, call us to find the gas furnace installation or replacement that’s right for your home.
