What Is Short Cycling (and Why Do Heaters Do It?)?

Monday, December 3rd, 2018

chilly-manWhen it comes to your heater’s overall performance quality, good enough is just never good enough. You deserve the best heating performance that your home heating system has to offer, and you simply are not getting that level of performance quality if your heater is constantly cycling off and on. Remember, the fact that your heater is up and running does not guarantee that your heater is up and running properly. Nor does it mean that the problem is “minor” enough to ignore!

No, short cycling may not lead to your heater breaking down entirely right away. However, it is going to cause a number of problems as soon as the issue begins. As is the case with most heating problems, there are a few different reasons why your heater may short cycle. The good news is that, in at least one case, you can resolve the issue on your own. The bad news? There are other cases where serious damage may result. Play it safe, and schedule prompt heating repair in Falcon, CO when necessary.

Will a Furnace Work with a Cracked Heat Exchanger?

Monday, March 12th, 2018

opening-furnace-cabinetThe natural gas furnace has everything most homes need in a heating system. It heats the whole home from a central location, it connects to the gas line available for most homes to access, and it does not cost an arm and a leg to run. Furthermore, today’s gas furnaces are safer than they have ever been before.

However, there is still a small risk when running any natural gas appliance of the dangerous byproducts of combustion leaking into a home. Perhaps the biggest risk with a furnace is a cracked heat exchanger. This is the component that allows heat to transfer to the air moving through your home, so shouldn’t the furnace shut off if the heat exchanger is cracked? Is this really something to worry about?
