Broken Down Heater Have you Stuck in the Cold? Here’s What to Do!

Monday, December 14th, 2020

Alright, alright, we all know that folks north of us and in the Midwest probably laugh at what we call “cold,” but let’s face it, we do deal with chillier temperatures in the wintertime. When we’re used to calling a 95° day “pretty hot” and an 80° day “mild,” then it’s no wonder we’re shivering when temperatures outside dip below 65°! Plus, if it’s rainy or overcast then there’s no natural radiant heat flowing into our home from south-facing windows.

So, we want our heating systems to work, and we want them to work well, right? When yours is in need of a repair—or even worse, when yours has broken down completely, it can feel like an emergency. That’s when it’s time to give our team a call. While you wait for our team to show up though, it’s natural to want to know how to stay warm. Read on as we uncover some tips to do just that.

Is a Cracked Heat Exchanger an Emergency?

Monday, November 30th, 2020

The short answer to this question is, “yes!”

But we don’t expect you to take that at face value. After all, it’s such a small component, how important could it be? Well, if we’re talking about the heat exchanger in your gas-powered furnace, pretty darn important!

Look, we’re not here to panic you or scare you into thinking that gas-powered furnaces are inherently dangerous—they’re not. But when you ignore a problem as serious as this, they certainly can be. Just like any other appliance that creates combustion gasses, a furnace has the potential to create health hazards if the system isn’t properly maintained. Treat your gas furnace well and you’ll have little to worry about.

Cracked heat exchangers are a problem usually isolated to aging furnaces—that is, any furnace over 15 years old. For this reason, we typically recommend system replacement once your furnace has reached this age. Read on as we uncover why you don’t want a cracked heat exchanger.
