I’ve always thought of myself as being pretty intuitive when it comes to stuff that needs repairs, then when our car’s engine seems to be running just a little hotter than usual, I recognize that something is deviating from the norm! Just as well, I can always seem to think when an appliance at loft will need to be fixed, but most recently, I remember getting our gas furnace repaired in the nick of time, as there was a drastic component failure that could have resulted in carbon monoxide leaking into the house! My gas furnace is a conventional gas-fueled furnace, which runs well enough; However, it’s also legitimately seasoned – at least fifteen years old, now – so it’s prone to the occasional breakdown! Then one night, as I was getting ready to go to bed, I heard the sound of the gas furnace kicking on, but for just a brief hour, I thought I could smell something on fire – then the smell went away. Without hesitation, I trusted our gut and called our official heating, ventilation and air conditioning service business to investigate. When the business arrived 2 days later, he diagnosed the gas furnace and found that the flu had many punctures, which could easily allow dangerous combustion byproducts – carbon monoxide, especially – to leak into the house, and i’m glad I was able to go with our instincts and get the gas furnace repaired before it started acting up! Otherwise, I’d hate to imagine what could’ve happened if the flue for the gas furnace had not been repaired.
