During the winter, the furnace in your home is one of the most important appliances that you have. It is important that it is working to the best of its ability. However, there are several things that can go wrong with your furnace. While some of them might just be normal wear and tear on the unit, there are other problems that could be the result of a recall on the part broken. Air Supply Heating & Air Conditioning is here to talk about why it is important to make sure that your furnace doesn’t have any recalls out that make your furnace less safe for your home.
How Do I Check for a Recall Notice on My Furnace?
No one wants to think that the furnace in their home is a safety hazard. However, if your furnace has a recall on it, that is exactly what you could be dealing with. The best way to find out and make sure that there is no recall on your furnace is to check with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to see if yours is listed there. If you visit their Furnace Recall page, you will be able to look through a list of furnace manufacturers and model numbers to check to make sure your furnace isn’t listed there. If it is, you will want to make sure that you don’t need to replace it all together. Not all recalls will mean a complete furnace replacement. In fact, there are many that simply mean that a small part of the furnace needs to be replaced for it to be as safe as possible. Only sometimes will the part that is defective warrant a complete replacement.
Risks of a Defective Furnace
When it comes to furnace recalls, there are two major safety concerns that homeowners need to be worried about:
– Fire Hazard: The electrical components that make up your furnace are many. If there is a problem with one of these electrical components, you might find that your home is at risk of an electrical fire unless that part is replaced.
– Carbon Monoxide Leak: Any gas burning furnace is going to produce carbon monoxide as a byproduct during operation. If there is a crack in the heat exchanger, this gas that would normally be vented outside will leak into your home and the air you breathe. This is another big concern with recalled furnaces.
