High Efficiency Furnace-Be Careful of Snow

We have only just begun 2014, and already we have seen significant amounts of snow and cold temperatures in Michigan and across the country. According to the Farmers’ Almanac, it will be a snowy winter this year! With all of this snow and cold temperatures, you want to ensure that your heat runs consistently. If your heat stops working, try these steps, and if that doesn’t work, you can always contact a professional contractor such as FLAME.

However, if you have a high-efficiency furnace (90% AFUE and above), you should also check your furnace’s intake and exhaust pipes along the side of the home if the heat stops working. These are white PVC pipes located on the side of the house 1-2 feet off the ground. When the weather is snowy, these pipes can become clogged with snow which causes the furnace to malfunction. Therefore, clear the area around these pipes after a significant snowfall. Also, be careful when shoveling, not inadvertently blocking these.
