Furnaces & Carbon Monoxide Safety

When properly cleaned and maintained, most furnaces will produce only a negligible amount of carbon monoxide. However, if your furnace is dirty and functioning poorly, it can produce a deadly amount of carbon monoxide. We recommend you install a carbon monoxide detector and alarm in your home, and make sure everyone in your home is familiar with these important carbon monoxide safety measures.

Call Ehlers Heating & Air Conditioning at (248) 579-2362 if you ever have questions or concerns about carbon monoxide in your home.

FAQs About Propane, Electric, and Gas Furnaces

Why won't my furnace stay on?

Furnaces often turn themselves off when some of their components are malfunctioning. Dirty filters and blockages can cause a heat exchanger to work overtime, which can cause your furnace to shut itself off. If your thermostat is no longer functioning correctly, it will have a similar effect.

If you’re lucky, a broken limit switch might be your culprit. If so, all you need is a cheap replacement. A broken flame sensor will turn off your gas when it doesn’t pick up signs of a flame, but it’s relatively easy for a technician to repair.

How do I turn on my gas furnace's pilot light?

If you have an old gas furnace, you’ll find your pilot light near the bottom of your unit. Once you’ve turned it off, turn the switch to “Pilot” before hitting the reset button. Light the opening with a flame, and you should light up the pilot light itself. Now let go of the reset button. If your pilot light refuses to stay lit, you probably need a repair. A broken pilot light could be caused by a malfunctioning thermocouple, inefficient power supply, or accumulation of debris.

Why is my furnace hissing?

Hissing could be a sign of inadequate ventilation, so check that you have enough vents open. You might have a different airflow blockage or a ductwork leak, so it’s worthwhile to move furniture further away from your gas, oil, or electric furnace. A lack of ventilation can cause you to lose heated air.

If you’ve noticed your furnace isn’t working as well as it once did, this is your most likely culprit. While most of the sounds your furnace makes are benign, they can also be signs of a deeper ductwork issue that requires urgent attention.

When should I call for an emergency furnace repair?

If your breaker is tripping or you hear electrical noises, these symptoms might be dangerous. Loud noises could be a sign of loose connections and damage. Those red flags shouldn’t be left alone for long. If your system is emitting ice-cold air or is failing outright, call a technician immediately for an electric furnace repair in Livonia, MI.

Not all furnace emergencies are easy to spot. Frequent cycling and a yellow flame could be signs that your gas isn’t turning off. Gas leaks are one of the most hazardous furnace symptoms, so if you’re picking up the telltale scent, you should call for immediate help.
