Furnace Repair near Mcloud

Gas or Propane Furnace Heat Exchanger gone bad!

Gas or Propane furnaces contain heat exchangers that produce heat when the gas or propane is burned or combusted. The combusted or by products of the fuel being utilized in the furnace produces fumes that should be vented to the outdoors. As the heat exchangers wear and rust from use, they become susiptible to holes. Holes are bad!

In the attached picture you can see the rusted metal that has fallen off into the heat exchanger baffles. The rusted metal produces holes in the heat exchanger that can allow dangerous carbon monoxide poison to enter the heated air that enters a home or business.

Please have your older gas furnace checked out or inspected annually for your safety!

If you need help call us at (405)618-2AIR or visit our website at airokc.com today and schedule an appointment.  

 

 

Gas Furnace with a faulty heat exchanger. Rust has created potential harmful holes in the heat exchanger which makes it very dangerous to use!

It is cold in here! Why? The dog chewed a hole in the heating and cooling duct work!

Hole in the return air plenum/platform.

As you may be able to see from the picture, a dog chewed into the bottom of this return air plenum which is located in the garage. The furnace being located in a garage area is very common, the furnace platform or return air platform/plenum in this case is one piece. So the outdoor air that is in the garage area is being pulled into the heating and cooling system. Then the heating and cooling system must heat or cool the outdoor air, not the conditioned air in the home. And this my friends is not good!

Your heating and cooling system is now responsible for heating and cooling conditioned air that it has conditioned in addition to outdoor air. This system will never keep you comfortable! So, check those HVAC units that are located in the garage. You never know what they have been subjected too in the past few weeks or months and may need to be repaired. Check them especially if you are having system performance problems or concerns.

Pets, bicycles, lawn mowers, cars and really any moving object can penetrate the old sheet rock casings for older systems. And penetrations are bad!
