Gas Furnace Replacement in Tigard, OR 97224
“Chris and Bruce were friendly and professional from start to finish. They talked me through their plan to remove the old furnace with the new one. They were very careful navigating the furnace units in and our of my house. Chris and Bruce also noticed that my condensate piping was at an odd angle, so they went into the crawl space to inspect and fix the issue with that piping, which was very much appreciated. They then walked me through the installation and features of the new furnace. They cleaned up the work area and off to the next future satisfied customer. I would highly recommend Ben's Heating & Air Conditioning.”

Gas Furnace Maintenance in Milwaukie, OR 97222-4730
“Justin arrived on time with a big smile on his face so I knew we had a winner right from the start! He got right in and did an annual check on our gas furnace with such skill and efficiency that he was done and handing me the paper to sign before I could hardly turn around! I double checked with him by asking if he had checked everything and he assured me he had and all was well and running properly! I am used to service people spending more time sorting tools and poking around to accomplish the same thing Justin did in a few minutes. This guy is a gem! Don't let him get away from you because he is saving you time and money with his efficient and quick service. Way to go, Justin!”

Gas Furnace Installation in Portland, OR 97213
“Mike L and Zach F installed a new gas furnace in our basement a couple of weeks ago. They did a phenomenal job and we couldn't be happier! It was in the middle of a major house remodel and we are still living in the house so there were a lot of moving pieces for them to work around. I was so impressed with their manner and work ethic. They were both very polite and willing to work with me on the exact location of the unit. There were few days where Mike was here by himself and in order to make sure I was happy with the placement, he moved the unit 3 times for me, duct work and all. I know those were long days for him but he never complained. And both he and Zach worked to make sure the location of the new vents would work for us in the new remodeled space. The unit works beautifully! Lastly… we had an incident at the end of a long work day where someone had dumped buckets of wood stain in our dumpster outside and it had spilled all over the ground. Mike and Zach were getting ready to leave for the day when we noticed it but immediately grabbed supplies out of their van and started cleaning it up. I cannot thank them enough for that kindness. I would definitely recommend Ben's Heating and Air Conditioning and Mike L and Zach F as installers anytime. Thank you for a great experience!”

Change the Filters
The first thing you should do for your gas furnace, or any of your HVAC systems, is to change the air filter. This should be done at least once a year, but as many as 3 or 4 times depending on the manufacturers specifications. The air filter traps dust and debris from entering the furnace. As debris collects on the air filter it begins to restrict air flow, and anything that restricts airflow decreases the efficiency of your system.
Inspect the Burner Flames
Activate the burners by turning up your thermostat and inspect the flames. They should be even and blue. Don’t try to adjust the burners yourself, if the flames are not blue or not even call us or request service online and have one of our professional technicians inspect it.
Clean the Blower
The blower is right after the air filter in the furnace. Any dust and dirt that gets past the air filter will land on the blower. Remove the control panel from in front of the blower. Then remove the bolts that hold the blower and lift it out. Clean the blades gently with a vacuum or small brush.
Clean the Pilot Light and Flame Sensors or Hot Surface Ignitors
If you have an older furnace you will have a pilot light, however most new-model furnaces will have a hot surface ignitor. The goal here is to remove dust and debris. Carefully blow dust away from the pilot light; you can use a straw to get a centralized airflow. The same goes for the hot surface ignitors. The ignitors are very fragile so don’t remove them, simply blow away any debris or dust that has collected. If you have any questions or think you may be in danger of damaging any part of your furnace, please contact us and we will have a professional technician come service your system.
We recommend a seasonal inspection by one of our technicians. One of our certified professionals will be able to inspect and repair anything else that may be needed to keep your unit running efficiently. We also recommend having your ducts cleaned once a season. You should also have your insulation checked and all leaks repaired.
You should have your furnace inspected before every season. Contact us today for furnace inspection and maintenance or request service online.
