Home fires are surprisingly more in Winter time than any other time of the year; One may wonder why this is so when it is practically freezing out there. However, this phenomenon is usual for us in the Heating plus A/C industry as the people I was with and I have been called countless times to come to rectify Heating plus A/C units that were almost burnt to crisp plus sometimes even replace those that are irreparable, funny thing is that when such accidents occur, the homeowner only canked up the control component in a bid to force the gas furnace to produce a lot more heat for the familyâ€¦ What many people do not realize is that these systems are created in such a way that they can only heat upto a certain level that is considered safe plus sufficient, therefore, pushing your component to over give when it was not meant to go beyond certain temperatures is a recipe for disaster! Some of the fire cases are not related to the manipulating of heat pumps plus gas furnaces. They occur when homeowners forget the alternative heat sources such as portable furnaces plus leave them overnight or when they forget to switch them off when they leave the house early in the day. Some of these gadgets are only meant to be a temporary solution plus should be switched off instantly after use. Sadly, accidents happen even when they are triggered by homeowners! It is therefore important to take insurance on your Heating plus A/C program because you never believe when something may go wrong. Even more importantly is to ensure that you use the heating component well to avoid these fires in the first siteâ€¦ Never light a gas furnace if you are unsure, and also, the moment you suspect that there could be a malfunction that you do not comprehend, call your Heating plus A/C professional instantly to assess plus service it. The last thing you what is a gas furnace blowing up in your face.
