)-- Chambers Services Wants to Help Homeowners Keep the Heat on This Winter
Chambers Services, a respected HVAC contractor since 1995, wants to educate Central Illinois homeowners about four common ways snow can damage furnaces and outdoor air conditioning units.
First, snow can block the exhaust of a furnace. This might cause the unit to stop working or allow carbon monoxide or other dangerous chemicals to build up inside a house.
Secondly, outdoor components on air-to-air heat pumps have the chance of collecting a buildup of snow and ice. This can block ventilation. In addition, the excess vibration can cause refrigerant pipes to fail and leak.
Thirdly, homeowners should make sure large icicles are not forming above their outdoor cooling unit. Should a large icicle break off and fall on top of the unit, it would likely mean the homeowner would need to replace the unit.
Lastly, water from melting snow can create significant damage. This could come in the form of rust or corrosion that prevents a unit from working. Damage could also occur if water seeps into the system, refreezes and breaks parts when it expands during the refreeze.
Chambers Services welcomes any questions or concerns homeowners may have about problems with their furnaces. Call 309-829-6750 to speak with a technician about problems the winter storms may have caused.
