The Most Dangerous Malfunction Your Furnace Might Need Repaired

December 09th, 2019

First, before we go farther, we want to stress that natural gas furnaces are not “risky” devices to have in your home. They aren’t ticking time bombs that will eventually become hazardous, and they aren’t something to worry about each time one comes on. If they were any of these things, they would never be allowed into homes in the first place. The modern gas furnace is built with a high priority on safety.

However, burning natural gas—as with burning any combustible energy source—can create dangers without the proper precautions. The company that manufactured your gas furnace already took most of the major precautions. You’ll need to take a few of them yourself to ensure your furnace operates at the highest levels of safety. Specifically, you want to watch out for this malfunction: a cracked heat exchanger.

Don’t Ignore These Noises from Your Heater

February 05th, 2018

Sometimes, a heating system breaks down with little or no warning at all. It goes from working just fine throughout the day and night to suddenly not turning on at all.

Often, this sign of trouble comes in the form of an odd noise. While it may be accompanied by some unusual performance from your heater, the noise is what helps you to narrow down the cause. Today, we hope to show you what those noises may mean and why it is so important to call technicians in at their first sounding off. Don’t ignore these furnace noises!
