7 Signs You Have a Furnace Problem

The key to furnace maintenance is staying ahead of the game, before a faulty furnace can begin to cost you extra money or jeopardize the safety of you and your family. A good furnace should heat your home in an efficient manner, without compromising the air quality for the people who live there.

Some clues to look out for can include: Old age Steadily increasing heating bills More frequent repairs needed Diminished air quality Pilot light color Weird sounds and smells Decreased efficiency Old Age One fairly reliable determining factor influencing when it is time to buy a new furnace is the age of your existing furnace.

  Just like you would have your air ducts cleaned and air conditioner or water heater repaired or inspected, your fireplace also needs some attention and care from a professional to make sure it’s working properly and most importantly, safely, for you and your family to enjoy any time of the year.     Gas Fireplace Maintenance and Safety Tips   A gas fireplace can be a very attractive, ambience enhancing and useful addition to your home and while they are certainly more low maintenance compared to a wood burning fireplace, they do require a proper inspection and cleaning at least once a year to ensure it is operating safely and efficiently.   Gas fire places have the advantage of burning cleaner than traditional fireplaces and don’t produce the kind of smoke, soot and ash debris as the wood-burning kind. That being said, it’s particularly important that you get a trained profession to do a regular inspection of your gas fireplace for a number of reasons. For instance, a white film that can appear on the glass enclosure of your fireplace isn’t dust build up, it can actually be a sign of improper combustion which happens when there is an improper ratio of gas to air being burned. The usual culprit for that is none other than dirty gas burners inside the fireplace.   A professional analysis will also include a multi-point inspection test that will cover off things like checking the ignition and ventilation systems, surveying the log set and adding embers if they are needed.

This was the birth of the R-2000 homes which was to be the future of tight energy efficient homes. By solving one problem though they had created another larger problem which we now call Sick Home Syndrome. Our homes became so tight that it created a indoor bubble that we live in and reduced the fresh air available to come in through infiltration. We were now cooking, using cleaning chemicals, using hygienic products, in the house and circulating all those chemicals and stagnant air throughout our homes.

Good news is that we now have solutions to these problems that will either neutralize or reversed air quality that exists in our homes. 1- HEPA FILTERS – (high efficiency particulate arrestant).
