Furnace Repair: How to Keep Your Home Warm and Safe

By Darren Gersol Subscribe to RSS | February 27th 2012 | Views:

Your home’s thick walls and solid roof can only do so much to shield you from the cold during winter. Wrapping yourself up in thick blankets will probably work, but that sure is an inconvenient way to survive the bitter cold. This is why a furnace or heating system is a must-have. This device can be included in your heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system to balance the temperature in your home, especially during winter.

When your furnace is broken, it’s only a matter of time before temperatures inside your home drop to intolerable levels. You need to fix it right away or call a professional technician to fix it before you start freezing up. Most furnace problems are caused by dirty air filters and poor maintenance. Trapped heat can result in furnace breakdowns, especially when heat starts to damage the furnace’s internal components.

Since it can radiate heat fast, it could be dangerous to leave it turned on while repairs are ongoing. For this reason, the first thing that technicians do is to turn off the furnace or disconnect it from the fuel source. This is a protocol followed in any repair involving heat or electricity. Technicians also identify the fuel source, whether it is power cord, gas line, or propane, to determine how best to deal with any damage or malfunction.

A furnace could also suddenly stop functioning when the belt is displaced from the pulley. This happens when the belt is already worn to the point where it can no longer withstand cycle speeds. Some worn belts create strange noises that indicate heat production inefficiencies. Experts on furnace repair Salt Lake City clients trust realign the belt by loosening the bolts attached to the belt. They then tighten and put it back after realigning the belt.

When it comes to furnace Salt Lake City repair, experts also look for damage on the blower. This is quite necessary, as the heater will not be able to heat up your home if the blower is busted. The blower delivers heat throughout the entire house through the ventilation system. Without the blower, the heat won’t even reach a few feet of the vent without being blown in.

Gas leaks are also major problems with most furnaces and should be dealt with immediately before causing fires or explosions. If you smell any gas leak from your furnace, evacuate your home right away and call up furnace Salt Lake City repair specialists who know what to do.
