Believe it or not, furnace problems are very common. That’s why emergency repair services exist in the first place. One of the most common problems is a clogged filter. Dust and debris in the filter can cause the motor to seize and stop working. Warning signs that your motor may be in jeopardy includes a humming noise which, unfortunately, is all-too-often ignored by the average homeowner.
Cracks in the furnace, a problem particularly common with older furnaces, can be especially dangerous. When a crack exists, excess levels of Co2 can leak into the home and pose very serious health and safety threats to your family. When inhaled at high levels, this gas (which has neither scent nor taste) can be fatal. If you notice cracks in your furnace or if your Co2 detector indicates a leak, call for repairs immediately.
