Most people may not be aware of the crucial function the heat exchanger play in the operation of the furnace. The primary function of the heat exchanger is to move warm air through the duct system while also venting the toxic gases outside the home. Over time the heat exchanger may become cracked or even fail. When this happens the ability of the heat exchanger to vent gases is decreased and can even result in the gases being circulated into the duct work and throughout your home.
Today, most homeowners know the value of having a carbon monoxide detector in their home. Carbon monoxide is an odorless gas that can be harmful and even deadly depending on the level of exposure. A heat exchanger inspection conducted by a qualified Four Seasons HVAC technician experienced in detecting crack and failures will help avoid potential hazards and dangers when operating your furnace. The major focus of the heat exchanger inspection is to determine any possible integrity issues and to be able to resolve them as quickly as possible should a replacement be deemed necessary.
A heat exchanger inspection is recommended alongside yearly maintenance of your furnace. Prior to the start of the heating season you should have a professional heating and cooling company perform a furnace tune up to ensure proper operation of your furnace and keep it operating at it’s optimum performance. These steps prove to be very helpful to homeowners in saving money, and avoiding potentially serious issues down the line.
