A broken furnace is the last thing you want to deal with on a cold day or night in Mountain City, GA. Parts in your furnace can malfunction at any time, and it’s important to take action as soon as you notice that there’s a problem. Prompt furnace repairs are critical to your health, safety, and well-being.
Avoid a More Costly Repair or Replacement
Furnace problems won’t go away on their own, and chances are good they’ll get worse if you wait to take care of them. The longer you wait to schedule a furnace repair, the more likely it is that additional components will also fail under the added stress. What starts as a relatively fast and affordable issue could end up requiring an expensive repair or even a furnace replacement.
Protect Your Health
A malfunctioning furnace is a serious health risk to you and the other members of your household, including pets. Carbon monoxide poisoning is a potentially deadly situation that can result from a malfunctioning furnace. Babies, the elderly, people with chronic health problems, and pregnant women may develop serious health effects at low levels of exposure to carbon monoxide. Experts suggest installing a carbon monoxide detector on every level of your home to protect you and your family from carbon monoxide poisoning.
Safeguard Your Home
A gas leak in your furnace could result in a fire or an explosion. If the gas leaks for long enough, it could build up to a dangerous level in your home. All it takes is one spark, which could happen when flipping a light switch, to ignite the gas. If you smell a rotten egg odor anywhere in your home, immediately turn off your system, evacuate., and call for prompt furnace repairs.
