Most Dangerous Furnace Repairs

In the United States, the majority of home heating systems consist of a gas-powered furnace that utilizes a controlled gas fire to heat a device called a “heat exchanger”, where air passes through to be heated and dispersed throughout your home or building.

These systems are time-proven and effective at heating interior spaces, however, they do come with drawbacks and unnoticed or ignored damage could lead to potentially hazardous situations.

At Axsom Air, the only thing that’s more important than customer satisfaction is customer safety. That’s why we do everything in our power to make sure that our customers have access to the information and resources they need to operate their home equipment safely.

4 Major Furnace Problems That Shouldn’t Be Ignored

To keep you informed, we’ve put together this list of the four most common furnace issues that have the potential to cause serious, potentially life-threatening problems. While unlikely, these issues can happen with almost any furnace — and the best line of defense is being as informed as possible. Here are the 4 major furnace problems that shouldn’t be ignored:

Cracked Heat Exchanger

The heat exchanger is the component of your furnace that heats the air. Over time, as it goes through hundreds of heating and cooling cycles, these components can become brittle and crack. This can lead to a situation where toxic gasses can leak into the air supply.

Bad Air-Fuel Ratio

For combustion to work at all, the gas your furnace uses to heat the air requires oxygen as an additional fuel source. When your furnace fails to achieve a proper ratio of air and fuel, it can cause an excess release of carbon monoxide — an odorless, colorless gas that can be fatal if inhaled in high enough volumes.

Ignition Delays

Ignition delays occur when something prevents the initial start-up of your gas burners. This allows for an excess build-up of gas which creates a small explosion as the burners finally ignite and light the gas.

Broken Thermocouple Or Flame Sensor

These components essentially serve the same function in different models of furnaces. Their purpose is to detect larger-than-normal buildups of gas and shut it off once the temperature difference is detected. When these fail it could lead to a buildup of gas, which could lead to an explosion.
