Keep Your Furnace Safe This Winter

Our temperatures may still be mild, however it’s only a matter of time until we feel that first cool breeze, a sign of much chillier nights that are well on their way. When that time comes, you’ll be forced to think about your furnace and whether or not it’s up to the task of warming your home this winter.

Modern gas furnaces are manufactured with safety as the utmost concern. Not only that, but gas furnaces have multiple safety features that help to protect homes from dangers due to combustion or carbon monoxide leaks.

Ensure Your Safety

Even though furnaces today are much safer than those of the past, they still need help from professionals to keep up their safe operation. This is one of the many reasons that you should never skip an annual furnace maintenance appointment. There are a number of ways that this service will keep your heating system functioning with minimal health hazards. Keep reading to learn more.

Cracked Heat Exchanger: Though rare, one of the ways in which a furnace may start to leak toxic carbon monoxide is through cracks in the system’s heat exchanger. During your maintenance appointment our professionals will closely examine this component to find weak points brought on by strain and corrosion. If there are any dangers from cracks, then our technicians will arrange to install a new exchanger. It’s worth noting that if your furnace is aging, then a full system replacement may be recommended.

Limit Switch: During your furnace maintenance appointment, our professional technicians will check the limit switch. This is one of the essential safety measures on a furnace as it shuts down the burners and fan if the furnace begins to overheat. During your tune-up, we’ll test to ensure that this mechanism is working as it should.
