Furnace and Boiler Repair & Maintenance

In the middle of this frigid winter, you may wonder what device is causing your living room to maintain that comfortable 72 degree temperature. Most homes are equipped with a central heating system, though the parts that make up that heating system can be a bit confusing. What is my heating system, and how does it function?


Furnaces get their name from the Greek word “fornax,” which means oven. The first furnaces were stone or clay structures that used coal and/or wood to create intense heat. These furnaces were primarily used for ceramic work, such as with kilns, and smelting ore to create metal objects, tools, and materials. They are still the primary appliance in industrial metal production. Industrial furnaces are, simply put, cages for raging fires that are hot enough to melt stone, and sometimes, like the image above, look like something built to haunt small children.

Modern day home furnaces tend to run off gas or electricity or induction (a reaction of electricity and metal to create heat). They are much safer and contained than their older counterparts, are the cornerstone for most modern central heating units, producing high amounts of heat that feed into a ventilation system and flow throughout all of the connected rooms.

These furnaces tend to act up sometimes which can make you uncomfortable in the freezing winters. Airmaxx is just one call away from furnace repair and furnace replacement depending on the severity of the situation. If you wish to avoid these sudden and unexpected breakdowns you can acquire our furnace installation services to prevent any later trouble!

Small furnaces, usually electrical, are often attached to boilers and water heaters to apply the necessary energy in order to give us hot showers and scalding sink faucets or even to circulate heat from the boiler.

Breaking down of your residential heating system in the middle of winter is serious. You have to go through a lot of trouble. Airmaxx offers you the fastest and reliable furnace repair which is made possible by our knowledgeable and trustworthy technicians.

You can also benefit from our maintenance service that comprises thorough inspection and cleaning. It is essential to maintain a furnace as a poorly maintained furnace leads to improper air flow, displacement, condensation, and manifold pressure. These all contribute to the insufficient heating or faster wearing out of the HVAC.

Boiler 101: Fix your Boiler

A boiler’s job is to turn water into steam, which is denser than air and lighter than water. Air doesn’t hold heat as well, and water is difficult to move, so steam is a good medium for transferring heat to where it is needed. In most instances, a small furnace or heating device is attached and provides the heat to get the water steaming. Boilers, like furnaces, are not just used for home applications.

In home use, boilers can act as a kind of go-between with a furnace and your heating set up. Often a smaller gas or electrical furnace is attached to the boiler, heats the water, and once the water has hit its boiling point, the heat is distributed through a series of pipes and ducts that make up your central heating system. This process is also applied to your water heater providing the warm water you need for washing clothes and dishes. Using a boiler can eliminate the need to have a separate traditional central heating system and hot water heater, and are highly efficient due to the fact that the steam is in a closed loop that recycles steam back into the water to be boiled again.
