Are you one of the many homeowners in our area using a gas-powered furnace to keep your home warm this fall and winter? This is a great choice, and actually is still the most popular option among homeowners nationwide. This is especially true for climates like ours, with a need for a powerful heating system that will keep residents warm no matter what the weather has to throw our way.
Furnaces are cost-effective, and a great choice for many individuals. But when not properly maintained and serviced, furnaces can become dangerous. This is actually the case for any gas-powered appliance in your home. While they won’t be dangerous by nature, skipping important tune-ups or ignoring an aging furnace can certainly lead to operational and safety issues. One of these potential issues is a cracked heat exchanger.
