We focus on educating homeowners about the importance of regular heating maintenance, changing air filters, and gas and carbon monoxide safety. But for the most part, we don’t expect our clients to know very much about the various parts of the heating systems in their homes. That’s why we’re here.
Still, it may be helpful for you to know a bit about a key component of your furnace—the heat exchanger. The heat exchanger is responsible for transferring heat to the air moving into your home. But it can be responsible for a major safety concern as well.
