Providing Furnace Replacement Services in Gering Since 1987

Can you imagine living in the Gering area without a functioning furnace? It’s not a pleasant thought, is it? Unfortunately, if your furnace is approaching more than 10 years old, it might be something you experience firsthand in the near future. Like all of us, heating systems have an expiration date. As time goes on, the need for regular furnace repair grows, and parts become harder and harder to find. Eventually, whether out of economy or necessity, all furnaces will break down and have to be replaced.

Unfortunately, that death knell rarely sounds at a convenient time. It tends to happen late at night or on the coldest night of the year. Fortunately, the HVAC experts at Gering Valley Plumbing & Heating are here to help set things right. The fuel source doesn’t matter. We will help you find the new furnace that’s right for you and install it with the prompt professionalism for which we’re known.

Signs You Might Need a New Furnace

Signs You Might Need a New Furnace

A furnace on its last legs will often throw up an SOS. In some cases, these calls for help are obvious. A furnace that will no longer kick on, for instance. But there are a number of subtler signs that a new furnace may be soon needed. These include:

  • Age:
    If your furnace is over 10 years old, it’s often wise to at least consider replacement over repair. Newer furnaces are much more efficient than older ones. They also come equipped with a number of SMART systems. As the time of manufacture grows more distant, parts availability can also be impacted.
  • Repeated Visits:
    Are you having to call us more than once in a heating season for unrelated problems? This is often a sign of an impending disaster. Parts in older furnaces often fail in quick succession. The service fees for these visits quickly pile up and can eventually be more expensive than installing a new furnace.
  • Weird Smells:
    Do you notice a strange smell when the furnace kicks on? Does this odor refuse to dissipate with continued use? This can often be a sign of a leak or defective ductwork. However, if you only notice the smell the first time you turn the furnace on for the season, this is in line with the typical furnace start-up. That smell is the odor of accumulated summer dust burning off.
  • Odd Noises:
    Sometimes those things that go “bump in the night’, might be a sign that your furnace is on its last legs. These noises can indicate the beginnings of a major component failure. To see if the noise is the result of a major or minor issue, call a heating repair expert in the Gering area.
  • Climbing Utility Bills:
    As heating equipment begins to fail, it may have to work harder to keep temperature. This can lead to an unusually large spike in your gas or electric bills. To see how much installing a new furnace can save you in Gering, call (308) 216-8927 to schedule a quote for furnace replacement.
  • Visual Rust:
    Small amounts of rust in the burner area are to be expected with age. However, excessive amounts can signal an issue with the heat exchanger. If it gets too severe, vital components can fail and allow carbon monoxide into your home. It’s never a bad idea to have an HVAC professional check on a rust problem.

No matter how large or how small your home in Gering, Gering Valley Plumbing & Heating can keep it warm with a professional furnace replacement.

How to Ensure You Get the Best Furnace for Your Gering Home

How to Ensure You Get the Best Furnace for Your Gering Home

After determining a new furnace is needed, our HVAC experts will present you with replacement options. This can include changing the fuel source. Which one is right for you depends on a number of things, not just your budget. So, while money is important, our technician will try and balance costs with:

  • Compatibility:
    Though there are alternatives to your current furnace—including heat pumps—these other options also require changes in your distribution system.
  • Energy Efficiency:
    While almost all new systems will be more eco-friendly, the level to which that’s true depends on the unit selected. If you prefer long-term savings to upfront ones, consider going for something with a higher AFUE level.
  • Sizing:
    The furnace selected must be the right size. Too big of a unit will lead to short cycling. One that’s too small, meanwhile, will struggle to warm rooms furthest from your equipment. The best way to ensure you get it right is to leave equipment sizing to the Gering HVAC professionals at GVPH.

Curious about what’s the best way to ensure you get the right furnace in the Gering area? The answer is simple: trust our recommendations. Our staff truly values your comfort and will work diligently to find a furnace that meets your home’s specific needs. We also offer coupons to help make new furnace installation more affordable.

An Ounce of Furnace Maintenance is Worth a Pound of Cure

An Ounce of Furnace Maintenance is Worth a Pound of Cure

Installing a new furnace represents a long-term investment in your home. The last thing you want to do is let that money go to waste. That’s where preventive furnace maintenance comes in. On a regular basis, we recommend having an HVAC technician out to give your home’s comfort systems a comprehensive once over. While there, they’ll go through our extensive checklist and look for things like:

  • Loose wires
  • Dirty components or filters
  • Carbon monoxide leaks
  • Broken fan blades
  • Broken or worn belts
  • Signs of excess wear and tear
  • Dirty burners

By scheduling these checks regularly, you can maximize the life of your unit. We invite you to learn more about our furnace maintenance process.

When it Comes to New Furnace Installation, Choose the Company Your Friends Trust

Furnace replacement in Gering is something that should always be left to a professional. Working with HVAC appliances is dangerous, even when you have the proper training and equipment. An improper installation—which we see quite often—can also lead to long-term heating inefficiencies.

We are licensed and insured and every one of our HVAC technicians is highly trained. They also arrive equipped with everything they need to properly size and install your new heating system. Whether you need to put in a new furnace in Gering or replace one installed years ago, we’ll help you choose the product that fits your needs.


Furnace replacement is more expensive than stadnard heating repairs, but sometimes it becomes the only possible option. At Gering Valley Plumbing & Heating we always opt for furnace repairs over system replacements, when this would suffice, unless otherwise requested by the client. However, we know that there are some people who are leery of so-called professionals claiming that they need a furnace replacement.

Too many heating contractors have fraudulently convinced unsuspecting home or business owners that they need replacement, in order to make more money. Sometimes it is also simply because the repair is beyond the skill level of the contractor, but they do not want to admit this. Make the wise choice to partner with a reputable industry expert and you will never have to worry about falling victim to this type of unethical behavior.

Service Excellence for Quality Furnace Replacement Results

Be a savvy home or business owner, as well as an informed consumer, and keep these points in mind, before decide between repairs versus replacement:

  • The average lifespan of a furnace is about 15 years – how old is yours? If you are nearing the end of the life cycle anyway, it might make more sense to opt for replacement over repairs.
  • If the cost of repairs is 50% or greater than the current value of your furnace, replacement makes more sense. There is little point in investing more money into repairs into a system of lesser value.
  • If your furnace has been a source of constant repair needs, or is likely to require ongoing repairs in the future, it would probably be more sensible to replace your system.
