When your gas furnace receives the fuel line, it passes though the igniter. The heat from the flames comes through burners in the furnace. To get the gas to the burners for heat output, it needs to pass through tubes. These tubes are vital to the even distribution of gas and ultimately heat for your home.
For all these burners to light evenly, they must be clean. A cross-over tube or other device assists all burners to light at nearly the same time. If there is a delay in any of the burners lighting, there maybe a loud “Whoosh” or a loud “Boom”. This could be caused by dirty or misaligned burners or tubes.
Issues Causing Damaged Tubes
• Rust caused by moisture
• Collection of minerals, soot, or other debris
• Cracked pipes
• Poor connection to burners
How Can I Tell If My Burner Tubes Are Damaged?
If you notice the furnace making these noises or notice that the flames are not sharp and blue, you have dirty or damaged burner tubes. Not only could this cause an ineffective heat distribution but it could also lead to fatal carbon monoxide poisoning. Don’t risk the safety and comfort of your family to faulty and damaged parts to the furnace.
