Home Heating Furnace Review - How Do You Know If Your Heat Exchanger is Cracked?
When the guy who came out to fix or service your furnace told you that it was unsafe, he didn't make any false promises. He said there's no point in repairing what can be replaced and everyone knows those furnaces only last about five years anyway! So now we're stuck with having less heat than usual for a while until our next paycheck comes through – don't worry though because even if this is just some kind of sneaky sales technique (it probably isn’t), at least they'll still get paid when their shift ends right?
A Cracked Heat Exchanger is a very serious problem because it can lead to death or injury if not corrected. There are some contractors who will use this scare tactic when selling you a new furnace as well though and there's something called “the true test” that everyone should know about before they go into contract negotiations with them – talk about smart!
As a contractor, I can tell you that the first thing we look for when installing ventilation systems is whether or not our client uses combustion analyzers. If they don't use one themselves then it's pretty obvious how incompetent they are and should be out of business soon after because no professional would ever put themselves at risk like this! It might seem hard to get an accurate result from what looks likes just some smoke coming out their chimney but it’s important to have them show us where on top there will usually only need minor repairs before getting back right into making money.
I was once called to double-check a furnace for the homeowner who couldn't sleep, only to find out there wasn’t anything wrong with her home's heating and cooling system. I even changed out an old unit one time because another contractor had convinced this woman that she heard strange noises coming from inside of it! “If you can not show them any evidence or photographs proving these claims,” my boss advised, “then send him packing!”
This is a great tip for anyone who's having any type of home improvement done. Be careful and make sure you're getting what you paid for! A good contractor will have no problem doing this, but I love showing my clients how smart they are by justifying every recommendation that gets made with them so it sets us apart from the competition in terms of knowledge base – plus homeowners see through these tricks easily now days anyway because there are too many competitors out there looking at all angles before buying something new or renovating properties alike (and usually cheaper than one would expect).
