Ridgefield Park, New Jersey Furnace Installation and Repair
How a heater works
The system burns natural gas or propane in the furnace. The process takes place within the combustion chamber that always becomes terribly hot. The air then absorbs the heat within the heat exchanger after which a blower is responsible for sending the heated air through a duct system. The next thing is hot air circulating within the room.
What about a cracked heat exchanger?
The main component of the furnace is the heat exchanger. When the exchanger becomes cracked or rusts leading to the formation of a hole, the combustion fumes mainly in the form of carbon monoxide will contaminate the air within the room. Such a situation is extremely dangerous and should be addressed IMMEDIATELY. When the heat exchanger gets cracked, the entire furnace needs to be replaced.
