Exhaust is an extremely important concept when it comes to heating systems and heating repair in Rockland, NY. The fumes that come from a combusting furnace or boiler need to be exhausted somewhere away from homeowners and their family, and we do this by installing exhaust ports in homes across our area.
However, if an exhaust port is clogged up or running into problems, homeowners need to know how to identify these issues and call for help. This process starts with learning about some of the most important terms we use in the industry. From carbon monoxide to the heat exchanger of a furnace, there are certain components and materials that are integral to the heating process and will impact the exhaust port of a heating system.
Let’s talk about five terms that have to do with a furnace’s exhaust and how to tell when there might be a problem with them.
