Are you experiencing cold drafts in the winter? We’re so used to the hot weather in Texas that we don’t have a closet full of wooly slippers and big fluffy robes in our house. We depend on our funace to keep our home warm and cozy.
If you’re not sure if you need a new furnace, keep in mind most furnaces are designed to last 16-20 years. If yours is around that age, and needing more repairs every winter, it might be time to let us make a house call to discuss service, installation, or a free estimate. Or, you can fill out our 24-hr service request at right.
Having to wear socks to bed on a cold winter night is bad enough, but did you know that as furnaces age, a host of other dangerous problems can crop up? Cracks in aging furnace heat exchangers can leak carbon monoxide into your home undetected. Old wires can fray and catch fire. And that worries us.
In fact, we were awakened by an explosion about ten years ago when the gas line to our neighbor’s furnace rubbed over the furnace housing until a little hole was created. A little gas began escaping and eventually caused the explosion and fire that burned the house to the ground. Luckily, our neighbors were on vacation at the time. We don’t want this to happen to you.
