If you use a furnace during the winter to warm your home—and based on how common furnaces are, you probably do—it won’t have put in much work so far this fall. But it won’t be long before you have it fired up and working to send warm air around the house to keep your family comfortable and safe during winter.
But you want to make sure that your gas furnace is safe as well. Natural gas furnaces are not “dangerous” devices. They are designed with special safety features and should run for many years without the danger of toxic gas leaks or combustion hazards. If you remember to always have your furnace inspected and tuned-up in fall (you can arrange for this with our maintenance plan) the chance of the furnace becoming unsafe is low.
But it can still happen, and knowing the warning signs so you can call for emergency furnace repairs from our technicians is very important. Take some time now, before the furnace gets to work, to familiarize yourself with the warnings.
