Have you been suspecting that your furnace’s heat exchanger may be broken? The heat exchanger is a crucial part of your furnace, and, if it cracks, it will not only result in your furnace breaking down and not being able to heat your home properly, but it could also pose some potential risks for you and your home as well. Here are some signs to look for that indicate that your heat exchanger may be cracked: Furnace Repairs Near Woodbury
You Hear Strange Sounds
One sign that your heat exchanger may be malfunctioning or cracked is if you notice any unusual noises when your furnace is cycling. When your heat exchanger has a crack, it will generally result in rattling, banging, and/or popping noises when your furnace turns on. If you hear noises coming from your furnace, then you should have a professional inspect your furnace immediately.
There Are Cracks And/Corrosion
Another sign that your heat exchanger may be broken is if you notice cracks or corrosion on other parts of your furnace. When your furnace has gone through a lot of wear and tear, cracks and corrosion aren’t uncommon, and, when your heat exchanger is cracked, it can potentially exacerbate any issues that your furnace may have or create new ones as well. That means, if you notice that any of your furnace components have cracks or corrosion, you should call a furnace repairman immediately to inspect your furnace and do any necessary furnace repairs or a furnace replacement for your home.
Carbon Monoxide Leak
Lastly, when your heat exchanger cracks, it’s not uncommon for there to be gas leaks, such as carbon monoxide leaks. While your carbon monoxide detector should detect it, it’s best to make sure you are tuning up your furnace and having it inspected every year so that carbon monoxide leaks are less likely to occur.
