We always work hard to make sure you’re comfortable in your Nassau County, NY home, but even more importantly than that, we take your safety very seriously. When it comes to furnace repair in Nassau County, NY, we cannot emphasize enough how very important it is to make sure your equipment is running safely.
There are certain instances where we may deem your furnace unsafe for use, and the main reason we would do so is because it either poses a fire or carbon monoxide (CO) hazard. As an Angie’s List Super Service award winner, we work hard to provide our customers with excellent service. That might mean coming into your Nassau County, NY home to make a furnace repair, and having to red-flag your furnace, or determine that it cannot be used until repair or, in some cases, replacement, has been made. If that happens to you, you can rest assured that we’ll help you until repairs can be made or a replacement can be performed. Angie’s List indicates that most often, HVAC companies flag furnaces because of CO concerns, and lists some potential reasons for these concerns:
- The heat exchanger is cracked. This allows CO and other noxious gases to leak into the ductwork – and living areas.
- There is a chimney blockage. Instead of CO escaping out of the chimney, it comes back into the home.
- The venting system is cracked. Instead of directing CO outside, the cracks allow it to seep into the home.
- There is an electrical problem with the furnace. Many things can cause this – be alert in instances of water or flood.
- There might be another issue, such as dirty burners, gas pressure issues, or lack of air for proper combustion.

In the worst-case scenario, you might have furnace issues that are either too costly or too extensive for us to recommend repair. In some instances, it very much depends on your furnace’s warranty whether it will be more cost-effective to repair or replace your unit. At T.F. O’Brien, we generally only will recommend a replacement if it is warranted, and in those circumstances, we’ll help you find a furnace that’s right for your home and budget. We’ll also work with you to find any available rebates and incentives, and financing is available for qualified buyers.
