A dependable furnace is essential in frigid Northern Illinois. Our family-owned company understands that well. We installed the first furnaces in many of this region’s homes back in the 1960s and have served those households faithfully ever since. It would be our pleasure to provide quality furnace repair, replacement and maintenance for your home, too.

Furnace Replacement and Installation

Eventually, every furnace gets to a point where furnace repair won’t cut it anymore. At that point, furnace replacement becomes necessary.

Our team will inspect your system to determine if a replacement is right for you. If it is, we offer a wide selection of new furnaces from these top brands:

Our pros will help you understand the differences between the units and help you identify the best system for your home. We’ll never try to sell you a furnace you don’t need. Rather, you’ll receive trustworthy guidance and professional installation. Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Informative Free Quote

Our owner, David Gough, will do a detailed inspection of your home, including a heat load calculation. He will then recommend the ideal size, type and brand of furnace for your heating needs.

Step 2: Schedule Appointment

Once you’ve selected the furnace you like, we’ll schedule an installation appointment. David will also answer any questions you have about the installation, so you’ll be ready when the day comes.

Step 3: Pre-Installation Setup

The installation professionals will arrive on time on the day of installation and begin prepping your home. They’ll put down tarps in the areas where they’ll be working to protect your valuables.

Step 4: Furnace Installation

Our pros will carefully install your new furnace to meet all the manufacturer’s requirements so that it delivers optimal performance. A furnace replacement typically takes between 1-1.5 days.

Step 5: Setup and Testing

We’ll set up and test your new furnace to ensure it performs as efficiently as possible. This includes setting the furnace’s gas pressure to the right level for your home.

Step 6: Finishing Touches

Once installation is complete, we’ll do a thorough cleanup and give you a tutorial on your new unit. We’ll also handle all paperwork for your furnace, including equipment registration and warranty coverage.

Furnace Repair and Maintenance

Our team is also here for your ongoing furnace maintenance and repair needs. We offer annual routine maintenance checks to keep the system running optimally. This includes cleaning dust and debris out of the furnace and fixing or replacing parts that need it. Regular professional maintenance is essential for keeping unexpected problems from occurring.

Of course, unexpected furnace problems can still pop up. Therefore, we also offer emergency furnace repair service during working hours, after hours and on weekends so that you’re not left in the cold. We’ll come, inspect your unit and make thorough repairs for durable, top-quality performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are some common signs that my furnace needs repair?

Many symptoms indicate the need for furnace repair, including increased energy bills, strange sounds or smells coming from the unit or a discolored pilot light. If your furnace seems to be malfunctioning in any way, it’s best to get it checked sooner rather than later. Otherwise, the problem may become more expensive to fix over time.

Why should I hire a professional instead of trying furnace installation myself?

Professional furnace installation is the safest option for your home and family. A lot can go wrong when someone unfamiliar with furnaces tries to install one, including gas leaks and incomplete installation.

If a system is not set up the exact right way, it can void the manufacturer’s warranty. The system also won’t perform as efficiently as it should and will likely need repairs sooner than it would otherwise. Our team has the decades of knowledge and experience necessary to keep any of those issues from happening.

How often should my furnace be serviced for regular maintenance?

We recommend having your furnace serviced once a year to maintain optimal performance. It’s better to pay a relatively minor maintenance fee once a year than to face an unexpected major repair or replacement fee when a once-preventable problem gets out of hand.

What is the average lifespan of a furnace?

A furnace typically lasts 15-20 years at most. However, your furnace could last even longer if it is properly installed and annually serviced by a professional HVAC technician. The expert team at Gough Heating and Air Conditioning is always here for you to help extend the longevity of your system.

What should I consider when choosing a new furnace?

The most important thing to consider when choosing a new furnace is the size of the system. Contrary to what you might think, bigger isn’t always better. In fact, if a system is too large for your home, it won’t heat it properly. Therefore, it’s crucial to have a professional calculate the heat load required for your space and match your home up with the right-sized system.

Do you provide any additional HVAC services?

Yes! We specialize in everything a home in the Greater Rockford region needs for comfortable heating, ventilation and cooling. Aside from furnaces, we also work with air conditioners, air purifiers and humidifiers and provide professional duct cleaning services.
