My furnace was leaking carbon monoxide


I am so thankful that I ended up purchasing a carbon monoxide detector.

When I first moved into my Terrell, Texas home I redid the walls and ceiling.

I removed the old dial thermostat and replaced it with a modern smart model. I then painted the walls and scrapped the popcorn ceiling. I sanded the ceiling smooth and painted it a fresh coat of wet. In the ceiling project, I had to take down the fire alarm and a carbon monoxide detector. I ended up buying a modern smoke detector but didn’t get a monoxide detector for years. My boyfriend pushed me to do it since it wasn’t safe. I found a modern, attractive-looking model that actually mounted towards the floor. I set it up near my furnace and it read that it had obscene amounts of carbon monoxide. What is going on? I ended up calling for a Terrell furnace repair appointment. I read online that the issue could be my furnace leaking carbon monoxide. I was right. The furnace had a crack in the heat exchanger. The machine can still operate but it poisons your home. The gas is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. Without that detector, I could have been hospitalized if exposed too long. The Terrell Texas furnace repairman was amazing at his job. The heat exchanger is sadly an expensive part, almost as much as the whole furnace. He really was sorry about how much he had to charge me. But the cost of the work and exchanger was a lot and it had to be.
