One of the most crucial parts of a heating system, especially a furnace, is the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is the component that is able to heat the air. Using tubes and coils within the furnace, the air is able to be heated in large part to the heat exchanger. Since the heat exchanger is by far the most important part of your furnace, ensuring it’s in good shape is key. But with the work that a heat exchanger does, it’s no surprise that it will need to be replaced one day.

How Can Your Heat Exchanger Become Damaged?
A big reason that will result in our customers needing a heat exchanger replacement is when the heat exchanger becomes cracked.

The reason being is that when there are cracks present, it can leak carbon monoxide into your home. Not only is that dangerous, but it can also affect the performance of your furnace. So how does the heat exchanger become damaged with cracks? There are a couple of ways for this to occur.
- A buildup of Soot: When there is soot in the parts, it can cause the heat exchanger to crack.
- Flue Pipe has Carbon Monoxide: The flue pipe can carry high levels of carbon monoxide.
- Flames Are Irregular: The flames in the burner are typically blue and stable; yellow flames that sway back and forth pose a problem.
