Heating Issue Mcloud Okl;ahoma
Natural Gas and Propane Furnaces in Oklahoma have a heat exchanger. “A furnace heat exchanger is a set of tubes or coils that are looped repeatedly through the air flow inside your furnace for the purpose of heating the air. The furnace heat exchanger is the part of your furnace that actually heats the air!”
If you have a HVAC technician and or a HVAC Contractor tell you “You have a bad heat exchanger” have them provide proof or least try to provide proof before you spend the money for a new furnace. The attached picture is of a heat exchanger that has developed a hole. A hole in the heat exchanger allows fuel combusted air to enter the heated air and this is not good. Why? Because it could contain carbon monoxide. The typical sources of CO or Carbon Monoxide in homes are malfunctioning gas furnaces, gas stoves, water heaters, clothes dryers, and even improperly vented fireplaces. Making matters worse, many of today’s energy-efficient homes minimize outside air exchange and cross-ventilation, giving CO no chance to exit once it enters the home.
So please have your furnace inspected or checked once a year by a licensed HVAC professional to keep your home or business safe.
For a Free 2nd Opinion on the condition of your furnace heat exchanger or to schedule a 26-point gas/propane furnace inspection/check-up call 405-618-2247 today. (Especially if your gas or propane furnace is over 10 years old.)

If you have a Heat Pump and your home or business is not stating warm as normal you may have an heating issue. The key word is may. Because Heat Pumps can be designed and setup to work with varying parameters.
Examples: Older Heat Pumps (2003 and earlier – varies by model) may have an outdoor thermostat that will disengage the Heat Pump when the outdoor temperature is below a set point. Normally 32*F to 45*F. Newer Heat Pumps (2004 and newer – varies by model) will continue to run with the assistance of auxiliary heat or electric heat strips, electric heat strips are to be used to supplement the Heat Pumps heat and or to be used in an emergency when the Heat Pump needs repair.
Heat Pump performance is also determined by the set-up of the thermostat. In some cases the amount of time the heat pump runs versus the set point for thermostat or desired room temperature may determine if the Heat Pump will run or not run with the assistance of auxiliary heat. Or the thermostat can control the Heat Pump manually by selecting Aux. Heat or Emergency Heat versus normal Heat.
The attached picture is of a Heat Pump that was not working in because of mechanical issues and needed repair. Otherwise it would have been working along with the auxiliary heat to heat the home even in outdoor temperatures below freezing.
If you purchase a home and have never had a Heat Pump to control or understand. Call A.I.R. Plus Inc. for help in understanding what a Heat Pump is and have it serviced semi-annually. Why the service? Because Heat Pumps work to heat your home in the winter and cool your home in the summer. So they do double duty versus a normal A/C unit.
