Sporadically heat exchangers crack over time due to official use.

A gas furnace that is more than 9 or 10 years old may develop cracks from expected wear plus tear! Younger gas furnaces with cracked heat exchangers will often have other underlying concerns that cause the issue, then my brother found out that he had a cracked heat exchanger when the carbon monoxide detector in the basement started making loud sounds.

From the moment that my brother heard the noise, he called the Heating plus Air Conditioning supplier to investigate the problem. My brother found out that the heat exchanger was cracked, even though his gas furnace was only a couple of years of age! The Heating plus Air Conditioning serviceman told our brother that the problem was likely due to a dirty gas furnace filter or a plugged duct. The guy advised increasing the filter more frequently plus having a full condo air duct cleaning repair performed. My brother ended up replacing the heated gas furnace when he found out about the heat exchanger. The Heating and Air Conditioning supplier performed the air duct cleaning repair plus only charged our brother half price, since he was already paying for the high-priced gas furnace replacement as well, and I hope the cleaning will help increase the lifetime of the gas furnace. Since I found out that our brother needed to replace the gas furnace, I have been more than annoyed about the health of our own heating device. I have a heat pump in our home, so at least I don’t have to worry about the same gas furnace concerns that our brother worries about. Still, it’s important to stay ahead of repair plus important repair tasks.
