Time to have your Charlotte Furnace Repair Completed

October 10, 2015by Sophie The Dog

Have your Charlotte furnace repair completed before the frigid air arrives so you can stay warm and toasty all winter long.

As home owners, we quite often forget to have the furnaces checked before the frigid, artic air rolls in. Then, as Murphy’s Law would have it, on the coldest night of the year, the furnace goes out. Spending the night shivering, wrapped in blankets waiting for the repairman to arrive is no fun. If only we had remembered to have the furnace checked before the cold air arrived.

Just like your car needs servicing, so does your furnace. Furnaces have a lot of moving parts that need to be checked on an annual basis. This is so important that most furnace warranties have clauses that void the warranty if the damage is caused by a lack of maintenance. Most people know that by simply changing the oil in a car prolongs the life of the vehicle, you can also prolong the life of your furnace by performing annual maintenance.

Safety Concerns that Warrant Furnace Repair

While most people have heard about the dangers of carbon monoxide, few realize that gas, oil and other furnaces produce carbon monoxide. While plants love it (they actually filter the carbon monoxide out of the air), carbon monoxide is deadly to humans. Although typically, only small amounts of carbon monoxide are emitted and carried out of your home through the ventilation system problems can arise that increase the carbon monoxide. For example, if the furnace is not operating properly, if there are cracks in the system, or the furnace is dirty, carbon monoxide can increase and leak into your home.

Additionally, homes today are super-insulated. The downside to being super-insulated is that an airtight environment creates an ideal environment for buildup of carbon monoxide. Diligence in having your furnace checked annually and any furnace repair performed promptly protects you and your family from dangers of this silent and harmful gas.

Heating Repair & Tune-ups and Why They Are Important

In the most simplistic terms, furnaces burn some type of fuel (oil or gas) to generate heat. In order to operate efficiently, the proper mixture of ingredients (air, oil, or gas) must be monitored. When a furnace technician comes out to check your furnace, this mixture is checked to ensure that the burn is efficient plus the technician checks the burners to ensure proper ignition and burner flame. Additionally, the technician checks to make sure there are no leak or blockage in the ventilation system and to make sure that the wiring is not corroded or damaged.

The heater exchange is one of the most important components of your furnace because it separates the combustion process from your breathing air. The air is heated as it blows across the metal surface of the heat exchange and then distributed throughout your house. Having the heat exchange checked to ensure that it is working properly and there is no rust or corrosion is vital to the health of your furnace.
