Furnace Repair for Your Portland Area Home
If on a wet cold Portland day, your home feels as cold as the outdoors, it’s time to have your furnace checked. Here are some items that may have caused your furnace to fail:
- Poor maintenance – lack of maintenance causes more breakdowns than just about any other reason. Regular maintenance, includes regularly changing the filter and having your furnace checked by a professional once a year.
- Heat exchanger cracks – the process of heating and cooling the air in your home causes the heat exchanger to expand and contract. Sometimes the expanding and contracting can cause the heat exchanger to crack. If you suspect a crack contact First Call.
- Rust and corrosion – the combination of water vapor, carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and sulfur dioxides corrodes metal heat exchangers and rusts welded parts. Corrosion and rust can cause a furnace to fail. To determine the extent of repairs needed as result of rust and corrosion, contact First Call.
- Your furnace is old – A furnace cycles on and off up to 10,000 times per year and this takes a toll on your furnace. Discuss the life expectancy of your furnace with your service technician during your furnace’s annual checkup.
