When it comes to keeping homes warm, nothing beats a gas furnace. Well—that’s not necessarily true. If your gas-powered furnace is old or ill-maintained, then there’s a lot of newer, more efficient systems that would be better. But the point is that gas furnaces are powerful, effective, and efficient.
As we just mentioned, they have to be well cared for! This means scheduling annual maintenance for them. Maintenance allows our technicians to comprehensively inspect, clean, and adjust the system, all while checking for potential repair needs that might exist. We’ll alert you to these repair needs so you can get them on your schedule right away.
One repair need we check for during maintenance tune-ups, and we’re especially concerned about in aging systems (10-15 years old) is a cracked heat exchanger. Read on to learn more, including how to spot signs that you might have a cracked heat exchanger.
