Gas Furnace Services in Columbia, SC by Fulmer Heating & Cooling
Despite all of the advances that we’ve made in home heating technology over the past several decades, gas furnaces remain at the head of the pack in terms of popularity. The reason that they’ve been able to maintain this commanding lead is three-fold. First, they’re affordable. Gas furnaces are among the most affordable home heating systems on the market, as long as you have access to a natural gas line. Second, they’re versatile. Natural gas is cheap and widely available across the country. You can’t find it absolutely everywhere, but the majority of cities and towns in the US do have natural gas utilities. Finally, they’re effective. Natural gas gives off a lot of heat relative to the amount consumed, which makes it ideal for powering a furnace. We installs and services gas furnaces of all kinds throughout Columbia, SC. Call us today to schedule an appointment.

Gas or Electric?
We often get this question from homeowners who are concerned about getting the best furnace for their homes: "Which furnace is better: gas or electric?" The answer is not all that simple. Neither system is objectively "better" than the other. What matters is that you get the right furnace for your needs. Gas furnaces are ideal in many situations, as natural gas is a slightly cheaper fuel than electricity. As mentioned above, however, natural gas is not available everywhere. You need to make sure that you can actually use natural gas in your home if you want to use a gas furnace.
Why You Need Professional Gas Furnace Services
Messing around with natural gas without knowing what you’re doing is extremely dangerous. In fact, there is such a high risk for serious injury or death that most cities have made it illegal to handle natural gas without proper professional certification. If you need gas services, whether in the form of installation, repair, maintenance, or replacement, you should always trust a professional to handle it for you. It’s far better to be safe and legal rather than risk injuring yourself or others. Fulmer Heating & Cooling offers a full range of gas furnace services. Just give us a call, and we’ll take care of your gas furnace for you.
When to Call for Gas Furnace Repairs
There are a lot of different ways that problems may manifest with your gas furnace. We can’t cover all of them here, but there are a few common signs that you should always watch out for. For example:
- Strange Noises: Any time you hear a strange noise coming from your furnace, no matter what it is, it might be an indication of a problem. Be sure to call for repairs as soon as possible, just to be safe.
- Drop in Output: If your furnace suddenly doesn’t seem to be heating as well as it should, you could have a problem. It might be your air handler, your burner assembly, or anything in between. What matters, though, is that you get it checked immediately.
