Cracked Heat Exchanger
The heat exchanger is a component that separates the combustion process from the indoor air supply. This is a very common problem, due to aging of the furnace making the heat exchanger crack. This issue can cause efficiency and safety problems for your home.
It’s easy for homeowners to forget to replace old air filters that become clogged with dirt, dust, pet dander and other particulates. When this happens, air flow is reduced and system efficiency plummets. Filters should be replaced at least once every season — more often if the family has pets or a remodeling project underway.
Today’s new technology has created furnaces with electronic ignitions, making it so that the burner only turns on when the thermostat warrants heat. Having a malfunctioning ignition will prevent the burner from its optimized efficiency.
Fuel burning furnaces require air supplies for the combustion process, and a venting system to rid of combustion gasses. Our technician will diligently check for proper ventilation to avoid issues with venting.
The fan motor, drive belt and bearings are all items that begin to wear down as the furnace ages. As these components become worn, replacement is needed to avoid problems with air flow or even total system shutdown.
Just like a phone, thermostats can see wear or damage. These issues create limitations on controlling your furnace. With todays technology, programmable thermostats will aid your problem and also enable you to cut heating costs.
