Your furnace is the primary source of heat during the winter. It can bring comfort to your entire household and keep you safe when the temperatures plummet. On the same token, the furnace can also be a source of toxic air that can affect you and your family's health without you even knowing it. Certain factors can determine both the condition of the furnace and the type of toxins it's releasing into your home. If your furnace is old and worn down, we recommend that you call an HVAC specialist to inspect the system. It may be time for a new furnace.
