The Benefits of Natural Gas Heating
If your home has access to a natural gas line, then gas heating is typically the ideal choice. Natural gas is a clean-burning fuel that delivers a comfortable warmth. It’s also quite affordable relative to the alternatives and will help you save money over the life of your heating equipment. Natural gas is also safe in that burning it produces minimal particulates and nearly no carbon monoxide. It’s also reliable as you’ll still have heat with natural gas even if severe weather knocks out your electricity.
Heating Repair You Can Depend On
You rely on your natural gas furnace to keep you warm in winter, and when something goes wrong, you need an HVAC company you can trust to get your heat back on as soon as possible. That company is Gold Star, and area homeowners trust us for gas heating repairs because we make them a priority, provide honest advice, and carry out comprehensive repairs that stand the test of time.
Signs Your Furnace Needs Repairs
A natural gas heating furnace should have a blue and consistent pilot light. If that light is any other color, flickers, or goes out at times and needs to be relit, it should be serviced. A bit of a smell when you first start a furnace is normal, but if you notice persistent unusual smells, there’s a problem, and a carbon monoxide detector alarm is particularly concerning as it could indicate a cracked heat exchanger. You should also call us for strange or loud noises, cold spots, air that doesn’t feel as warm, a spike in your heating bill, or an increase in dust accumulation that undermines air quality in the home.
Seasonal Furnace Maintenance
HVAC warranties stipulate routine maintenance, and a seasonal tune-up for your natural gas heating system is the best way to avoid those unexpected breakdowns in winter. During a maintenance appointment, we’ll perform a multipoint inspection, clean your equipment, and lubricate all moving parts. That upkeep will extend the life of the equipment thereby lowering your long-term costs. It will also make your furnace run more efficiently thereby lowering your monthly costs as well.
Types of Gas Heating Systems We Service
Gold Star installs, services, and repairs all manner of gas heating systems. Those are primarily furnaces, including single-stage, two-stage, and variable-speed systems.
The single-stage furnace is the traditional type of furnace. It’s either on or off, and when it’s on, it outputs heat at the same level regardless of current temperature and other factors.
When a two-stage furnace is on, it can operate in either a low- or high-output mode. Low output is 60-70% of maximum and ideal for mild weather. High output is used for very cold weather.
A two-stage furnace is a variable-speed furnace, but there are modulating furnaces that can adjust output between 40% and 100% to meet the heating needs of a home in a precise and very efficient way.
Furnace Installation Services
If your current gas heating system is too old or expensive to repair, Gold Star can replace it instead. Our company also performs new installations and can convert you to natural gas, which may be necessary if your home recently gained access to a natural gas line. We’ll help you choose the ideal furnace for your home, ensure that it’s sized appropriately, and install it in a manner that meets all manufacturer warranty requirements.

Gold Star knows that if your gas heating fails in the middle of the night during winter, you can’t simply wait until tomorrow. Our company has repair technicians on call around the clock, including on weekends and holidays. Call us any time of day or night. We’ll arrive at your home as soon as possible with everything needed to get your heat back on fast.
