What to Do When You Receive a Condemned Diagnosis on Your Furnace

February 5, 2020

Thanks to the modular nature of furnaces, there are many components that can be fixed without having to replace the entire furnace. In some instances, however, the problems will be so serious that your furnace will be officially condemned. While no one wants to hear that their Roseville furnace has a terminal problem, it’s important to understand what this status means so that you can know how best to respond. Here is some basic information to know if your furnace is condemned.

Don’t Run Your Furnace

The entire reason that your furnace has been condemned is that it is no longer safe to operate. Therefore, running a condemned furnace is a bad idea. When we at C & C Heating & Air Conditioning have to condemn a furnace, it’s typically due to the risk of carbon monoxide release into the home, especially with a cracked or warped heat exchanger. We do this for your safety, as carbon monoxide poisoning has the potential to be deadly.

Understand Your Options

In most cases, your safest choice after having your furnace condemned is to replace it. At C & C Heating & Air Conditioning, we carry a full line of Carrier, Trane and Lennox products that will provide many years of reliable service and save you money on your utility bills. Keep in mind that it is possible to replace only the heat exchanger in a furnace. However, since it is part of the core of the furnace, it’s often much more economical just to start fresh.

Learn From the Past

Ultimately, any furnace can be condemned, no matter how well it was maintained. If you have your furnace serviced on a regular basis, though, the chance of your furnace being condemned is much lower.

A skilled technician from C & C Heating & Air Conditioning can keep you updated on the age of your furnace and on any components that are beginning to show some age. With the right maintenance schedule, you can help your furnace operate efficiently and help yourself effectively prepare for its eventual replacement.
