We are a certified Trane furnace installer and we always recommend installing this brand. The biggest reason is that they will warranty the labor installation costs as well as the parts. Most other furnace brands only cover some replacement parts.
We’re ready and on call to provide service for natural gas, electric, and even older oil furnaces. The average lifespan of a furnace is roughly 20 years. Even with the best preventative maintenance, within that lifetime a common problem can occur.

Furnace Maintenance & Repair Service
When your furnace stops or doesn’t work, don’t panic—we can have your furnace back up and running with minimal downtime. Your family’s safety and comfort is our number one priority. We offer 24/7 emergency heating & furnace repairs with highly skilled technicians who can quickly identify and solve any problem—no matter how large or extensive it is.
We get a lot of emergency calls from people looking to get a service in the middle of the night, or outside of regular office hours. When this happens, no matter who you call, they may not have the parts needed to fix your furnace. This is because the plumbing supplier company is closed.
This is where the Lillie Family Heating & Plumbing company has earned our reputation for being a trusted and reliable plumbing company. We will ask you a few questions to better understand your situation. If we can help you fix it, we will, however, if it is late and our plumbing supplier is closed, we might recommend that you bundle up at night and wait until the next business day so that we can fix your furnace the first time we visit your home or office. This saves you from paying a plumber to visit your home twice!
All boiler manufacturers recommend annual service inspections and most insurance companies require annual safety checks too. We can provide annual maintenance on all brands of furnaces and boilers, from high to standard efficiency. We can make sure your heating system is running safely for you and your family.
Regular furnace maintenance can reduce major malfunctions or damage and keep things running smoothly for the life of your appliance.
Having your annual maintenance done can help prevent potential failure on the coldest days when heating is required most.
We recommend scheduling service once a year for all electric and gas boilers.
We have a complete checklist that is checked every time you call for your annual maintenance. We only send out service technicians with gas tickets who are highly trained for your heating equipment.
Simple ways of helping your family stay safe is by keeping your furnace room or mechanical room uncluttered. This room should be clear of combustible materials or any fire hazards close to the boiler or furnace. Replace filters regularly, ideally every 3 months maximum. Keep an eye and ear out for any signs of malfunction—neglecting problems only makes them worse.
Sometimes the costs of repairs, especially with older units, may be higher than replacing it completely. If this is the case, we can advise you on the best new appliance for your home to meet your needs. Newer high-efficiency models can save you money over the long term and help keep your family safe from harmful emissions.

Please keep in mind that we will not be able to provide you with an exact cost of a furnace because every home has different elements that will change the cost of furnace installation.
Forced Air Heating
The HVAC experts at Lillie Family are ready to provide you with top quality gas furnace installation services, no matter what kind of furnace you need installed. We have experience dealing with all types of furnaces from practically every major brand, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you need help installing any of the following types of forced air furnaces.
Single Stage Furnace
This type of furnace is among the least expensive types of heating systems available to purchase due to its basic function and relatively inefficient energy consumption rate. The single stage furnace is named so due to the fact that it has a single gas flame that is either ignited when the unit is running, or extinguished when the unit is off. The unit switches on when the thermostat indicates the temperature has fallen below a desired level, and it remains on until the thermostat reads the temperature has reached the desired level.
2-Stage (dual stage) Gas Furnace
Unlike the single stage unit, a two stage, or dual stage furnace system keeps a flame on at all times, even when the unit is on but not generating heat. This goes a long way towards improving the overall efficiency of this unit, and even allows the furnace to run more quietly, since it never needs to reignite the gas flame once it has been activated.
Variable (modulating) Furnace
The final major furnace model that the HVAC experts at Lillie Family will install is known as a variable or modulating furnace. This furnace does a great job of maintaining a constant temperature throughout your property by making small, frequent temperature adjustments rather than waiting for the temperature to completely drop. As a result, these furnaces are among the most energy efficient models you can purchase today.
If you’re going to pay the energy bill every month, your furnace had better beearning its keep. After all, the last thing you want to deal with in the dead of winter is a cold home or office.
