Concerns about the safety of natural gas furnaces are common. We often have customers ask us if it’s really safe to have a natural gas furnace in their home.
The first thing we tell people is that gas furnaces are the most common type of heating system found across the U.S. If furnaces had any type of bad safety record, they wouldn’t be allowed so extensively into homes. The manufacturers of modern gas furnaces are required to design their systems with numerous safety features and to meet many national, state, and local requirements. When you see the ENERGY STAR label on a furnace, it not only means the furnace meets the standards for energy conservation, but it was also built to meet demanding safety standards.
Most people associate a filter with one important thing: air quality. Filters keep dust from blowing around the home. More importantly to many people, it picks up allergens like pollen and pet dander, and may even stop the circulation of some germs that could make you ill.
However, not everyone suffers from allergies, asthma, or other conditions that would require excellent indoor air quality. If you’re one of the lucky few who doesn’t suffer from allergies, you might not worry too much about the filter. In fact, many such people—especially those who don’t want to deal with regular filter changes—have asked us this question: “Can’t I just run the furnace without a filter?”
The heater has just started up again, and you’ve got a problem. There seems to be a smell coming directly from the vents. This can be a scary situation. Of course, if you have any cause to believe it’s a gas leak, you should turn off the system ASAP. Otherwise, the urgency of the issue can range quite a bit.
In some cases, there’s no cause for alarm when you notice a smell from the vents. Otherwise, you may need someone to investigate the heating system or the vents. Avoid this possibility with our maintenance services and call us if you do require heater repair!
Although we love being heating technicians and installers, we understand that most people don’t really want to run into a situation where they have to call us. Your heating system won’t last forever, though, and you’ll have to call in technicians eventually. But we’re here to help see that an emergency heating repair or replacement call happens later, not sooner.
Heating repair prevention is a little bit of work, but it’s worth it when you know you are more likely to get through the fall and winter without having to call us in. (We understand.)
