What to Do When You Need Heating Repair in Your Albany Home

Colder weather will soon settle into the Capital District, and that means the heating system in your Albany home will soon be busy. If you’re concerned about the health of your heating system this winter, it could be time to call Family Danz. Often, there are warning signs that let you know you’re in for some heating repair services. If you’re on the lookout for them, you’ll know when an issue is about to arise – and take proactive measures. Most likely, trouble with your furnace or boiler started well before this heating season.

Here are some important questions to ask yourself if you have heating system concerns, as they can be signs you need heating repair in your Albany home:

  • Did you notice your heating bills were higher than normal last year? If you answered yes, it might mean your system was working harder than it should have been. Or, if you have an older heating system, it may simply be losing efficiency.
  • Did you notice some rooms were warmer, or colder, than others? If so, it may not necessarily mean you need heating repair in your Albany home. It may, however, require some balancing and adjustments to your ductwork, which is a job for your heating contractor.
  • Did you have your furnace maintained by an HVAC professional? If you answered no, you may have some problems. Heating maintenance helps ensure all parts are well-oiled, no minor issues exist, and filters are clean.
  • Did you notice knocking or pinging sounds when you started up your system? If you have a radiator system, these noises can be common, but shouldn’t be too loud. If your furnace is making loud noises, especially screeching, banging or grinding ones, then you likely need heating repair for your Albany home right away.
  • Did you notice a smell that wouldn’t go away when you started up your system? It’s normal for there to be a “basement-like,” musty smell when you first turn on your furnace. After all, it’s sat dormant for months. But if the smell lingers, you likely need a filter change. Of course, in the event of a burning odor, turn your furnace off right away and call your HVAC dealer. If you smell gas, leave your home immediately and call the fire department.

Family Danz Recipe Corner: These Tasty Treats Will Be the Apple of Your Eye

Fall is here, and so are all the delicious tastes of the season. Pumpkin spice abounds, and apples are literally everywhere. Whether you like to pick them yourself, or enjoy the great fall sales on them at the supermarket, there is no better time of the year than right now to enjoy fresh, ripe apples. Of course, they’re tasty just to grab and snack on, but there are so many different ways to enjoy them. Sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar, baked into a pie, or, one of our favorite ways – covered in yummy caramel! We’re sharing a fun recipe for caramel apples with you from Allrecipes – they’re super easy to make, but one thing’s for sure – they won’t last long!

Caramel Apples


  • 6 apples, washed to remove any traces of wax and refrigerated
  • 1 14-oz. package of individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Sprinkles, chopped nuts, mini candies or anything you’d like to garnish apples (optional)
  • 6 wooden craft sticks


  • Remove stems from apples and press a craft stick into the top. Butter a baking sheet (you can use cooking spray as well).
  • Place caramels and milk in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave for two minutes, stirring at one minute. Allow to cool briefly.
  • Roll each apple in the caramel sauce until coated well. Place on buttered baking sheet to set.
  • While apples are tacky to the touch, if desired decorate with nuts, sprinkles or candies.

Sticky situations are good when it comes to enjoying caramel apples, but not so good when it comes to your home’s heating system. If your heating system isn’t running the way you’d like, you can count on Family Danz to help. We can repair virtually any make or model of furnace or boiler, so just give us a call at the first sign of trouble and we will be more than happy to assist you.

Get Your Fall Maintenance Scheduled Before Winter

We’ve had unseasonably warm temperatures so far this fall, so your furnace is probably the last thing on your mind right now. But, getting your heating system maintained is an important step toward ensuring that it runs well this winter. Unfortunately, many people think that preventive maintenance is just another way heating contractors try to make money, and that it isn’t really necessary. That couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, ENERGY STAR strongly recommends it.

Their website states, “Maintain your equipment to prevent future problems and unwanted costs. Keep your cooling and heating system at peak performance by having a contractor do annual pre-season check-ups.” At Family Danz, we offer fall preventive maintenance because we actually like saving you money. We know in our experience that the heating systems that most often fail on those cold winter nights are the ones that haven’t received proper maintenance.

Lack of maintenance can cause both large and small problems with your system.

At the very least, systems that go unchecked are often inefficient because of clogged, dirty filters and moving parts that haven’t been lubricated. These things make your system work harder and can make your energy bills more costly. At the most, unmaintained systems fail to the point they are beyond repair, and have to be replaced at a cost that most homeowners have not prepared for. So if you want to ensure that your heating system is reliable, safe and operating smoothly. And, a Family Danz heating system maintenance plan offers more than just an annual tune-up. You’ll also receive:

  • Priority Scheduling for Emergency Services
  • 15 Percent Discount on Parts and Labor
  • 24-Hour Emergency Service
  • No Overtime Rates

To get the preventive maintenance you need, simply call us at (518) 427-8685. We will be more than happy to assist you.
