The Bear in Every Heating Repair

Home Heating 101: Get The Most Out Of Your Heating Unit With Tonna Mechanical

Tame Your System and Restore Your Comfort With Tonna Mechanical

If you came face-to-face with a bear, you would probably focus first on its teeth and claws. But in reality, bears are much more than frightening, honey-craving creatures.

Likewise, there’s a lot more to your heater than what meets the eye. In fact, you could even compare your heating repair in Plainview, MN, or elsewhere in Southeastern Minnesota to the behavior of a bear. Not sure how? Read on.

Inconsistent Temperature

During hibernation, a bear can sleep for months with a body temperature of 88 degrees or higher. Until hibernation ends, a bear maintains a consistent body temperature and stays nice and cozy in the cave.

Wouldn’t it be great if the temperature in your home could be as consistent as a bear’s? Well, with a little help from Tonna Mechanical, it can! If the problem is your heating system, our NATE-certified technicians will make the right fix. We also offer industry-leading thermostat and zoning systems to improve your heater’s efficiency and eliminate the hot and cold spots in your home.

Unusual Growls Noises

Nothing will get you moving faster than an angry bear. But a growling bear isn’t the only noise you should take seriously.

When your heating system makes unusual noises, it’s a red flag that something isn’t right. Our technicians at Tonna Mechanical can quickly diagnose the problem and make the necessary repair to get your heater back on track.


Black bears can live for more than 30 years. Heating systems, on the other hand, are made to last an average of 15 years. If your unit is older and frequently needs repair work, it may be time to invest in a new system. Think about the age of your heater, and consult a Tonna technician to determine whether you should repair or replace.

Climbing Energy Bills

When bears hibernate, they live off of their own fat. As a result, their cholesterol levels are more than double what they are in the summer. While this natural phenomenon isn’t alarming or dangerous for bears, you can’t say the same about your rising energy bills.

If your utility bills have gone through the roof, it means that your system is inefficient. Call our experts at Tonna Mechanical to determine why your bills have increased.

If you need heating repair in Chatview, MN, Rochester, MN, or elsewhere in Southeastern Minnesota, one of our technicians will quickly restore your heater. Or, if it’s clear your system needs to be replaced, we’ll install a new, energy-efficient system for your home. Tonna Mechanical is Southeastern Minnesota’s only Carrier Factory Authorized Dealer and offers a vast selection of industry-leading furnaces and heat pumps.
