How to Prevent a Heat Exchanger Crack in Your Furnace

Google Rating
Based on 3612 reviews

A heat exchanger crack is one of the biggest safety issues that your furnace can develop. The longer your system operates with a cracked heat exchanger, the worse the cracks will get. In order to help you avoid these safety issues, today we’re going to talk about how a heat exchanger develops cracks and what you can do to prevent or identify the problem before it’s too late!

How does a heat exchanger crack?

Your heat exchanger heats up and cools down every time that your furnace goes through a heating cycle. As this happens, the metal walls of the heat exchanger expand and contract. Although heat exchangers are designed to withstand this constant expanding and contracting, the metal walls can eventually start to develop cracks from repeated wear-and-tear (especially if your furnace is operating inefficiently).

Not only do heat exchanger cracks cause your furnace to run less efficiently, they also allow dangerous carbon monoxide gases to get into your home’s air supply.
