Beware of this Dangerous Furnace Malfunction

Monday, December 10th, 2018

furnace-gas-burnersDon’t panic just yet. Furnaces are not inherently dangerous, and often you have nothing to fret about. However, it is important to be aware that systems combusting natural gas have the potential to create health hazards if improperly maintained and repaired. That being said, the best way to avoid a dangerous situation is to schedule regular maintenance.

The dangerous furnace malfunction we are referring to is a cracked heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is the part of a natural gas furnace where the heat from the combustion gas transfers to the air from the blower fan that moves into the ventilation system. To put it simply, the heat exchanger is the part that actually heats the air. Once the heating process is finished, the combustion byproducts in the heat exchanger are vented out of the system through a flue to release the gas harmlessly into the air.

What You Should Know About Refrigerant

Monday, July 23rd, 2018

white-question-mark-on-a-blue-backgroundYou may have heard the term Freon before. This is actually a brand name given to a very important component within your air conditioner, and that’s chemical refrigerant.

Fans can certainly help out a bit in hot weather, however if you really want to achieve comfort during the summer, then you need a highly effective and efficient air conditioner.
