If you’re like most homeowners in our area, you use a furnace heating system to keep your living space warm during the winter. Gas-powered furnaces are the most popular type of residential heating system across the country, after all.
They not only produce a large amount of heat, but they do so at less expense than electric furnaces because natural gas costs less than electricity per unit.
However, natural gas appliances do come with a risk. That’s not to say they’re inherently dangerous. But if you skip maintenance or don’t keep up on small repair needs, problems can grow and you can end up with a dangerous situation on your hands. One of these possible situations is a cracked heat exchanger.
