A cracked heat exchanger is one of those furnace issues that should not—well, cannot—be ignored. Not only is it something that most often happens to aging furnaces that are just about at the end of their lifespan anyway, a cracked heat exchanger is dangerous. It enables carbon monoxide—a tasteless and odorless, yet hazardous, gas—to make its way into your living space.
If you suspect your heater is experiencing this problem, or that you have a gas leak, we would encourage you to call your utility company’s emergency line, first and foremost. If you want help in preventing this from happening, then give our team a call for professional Oradell, NJ heating services, such as maintenance.
