My Gas Furnace Heat Exchanger is bad! What is a gas furnace heat exchanger?

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.)

Knowing your family is safe is comforting! The Knowing is what A.I.R. provides! 

What uses the most energy in your home?

Check out the link below. Heating and Cooling your home accounts for 41% of your total energy bill. Water Heaters add and additional 12% for a total of 53% of your total energy usage.

Very interesting information for those that are interested in saving money and energy.

Semi-annual inspections of your heating and cooling system(s) can save you money on energy consumption and on repair cost for your HVAC equipment. And don’t forget to change your air filters, dirty air filters make your heating and cooling systems work harder!

Do the flames on my gas furnace look normal?

Gas Furnace - Orange flames 1Gas Furnace Orange Flames 2

The attached pictures are of a 30+-year old gas furnace with stamped-steel slotted burners. It appears the burners themselves have never been removed to be cleaned and therefore the orange colored flames are a by product of dirt and dust particles and possiblly incomplete combustion of the natural gas fuel. A proper flame color should be, dark blue at the bottom, light blue in the middle with a slight orange tip at the top. Yellow tips indicate an air starved flame emitting poisnous carbon monoxide and the gas furnace should be serviced immediately!

Verifying the gas pressure and cleaning the burners, along with a carbon monoxide test, are necessary on older gas furnaces to insure you have a safe envoirment for your family. A 26-point furnace check-up which includes the testing of the gas pressures and the carbon monoxide test should be perfromed every fall season. Oklahoma Natural Gas Co provides a $30 rebate for their cusotmers who have this service performed by a qualified contractor.

Give A.I.R. a call today at 405-618-2247 to have your furnace safe and ready for the winter season. And take advantage of the rebate offer by allowing us to prepare the rebate form for you!
