Types of Furnaces and Repairs
Different homes are heated by different elements. The first step to figuring out what kind of heating problem you have is to determine what kind of heating system you have.
Electric Furnace Repair
Electric furnaces function similarly to gas furnaces. Electric furnaces don’t need to be connected to natural gas lines, so they are somewhat easier to install. They also don’t have the same health risks associated with gas furnaces as a result. However, depending on the size of your home and your location, it can be slightly more expensive to operate. There are also components that can fail and need replacing. Ensure you conduct proper maintenance and furnace repair to cut down on potential part failures.
If you go years and years without proper inspections or maintenance, the fuse in your electric heater can become dirty, or short out. If your electric furnace blows fuse after fuse, then there is a chance that it is having electrical issues. Electric furnaces vibrate, and over time, the electrical wiring may come loose, causing the furnace to malfunction. Also, pipe leaks can cause your electrical furnace to short out. If you’re having trouble with an electric furnace in your home in the Stryker, Bryan, and Napoleon, OH area, call the licensed experts of Woolace & Johnson at 419-546-8424, so we can come diagnose and then fix the problem.
Gas Furnace Repair
Gas furnace service is often a good choice for people that already have natural gas lines in their homes. It can be more cost-efficient in the long run, as your natural gas is probably also powering other parts of your homes utilities. Gas is cheaper than electricity with a better ability to evenly heat a home. Unfortunately, gas furnaces come with the additional problems that most home natural gas appliance do.
Gas leaks are a very dangerous potential health hazard associated with gas furnaces. Aside from making the people and animals in a house sick, it can be fatal if inhaled in large enough quantities. It is also very flammable if allowed to collect in closed spaces, and prone to potentially exploding. This can all be avoided by having your gas furnace inspected as frequently as you have your natural gas pipes inspected, at least once a year.
