This heated furnace is breaking

Other reasons that may also trigger exchanger problems include an oversized furnace, and this means that the furnace is likely to heat the home too fast, starting the control system, which then shuts down! Frequent furnace cycles caused by large or insufficient furnace sizes may lead to expansion and contraction of the heat exchanger, which stresses the exchanger, causing it to crack.

My Grandma’s furnace has been all over the place for the longest time I can remember, and I found it actually working over twenty five years ago. Unfortunately, the furnace in my own home seems to be failing on me, considering that the exchanger broke, yet it is relatively new! What could be the reason behind this, yet I expected it to serve me nearly as long as my Grandma’s did? A bit of research on this subject leads myself and others to some interesting findings. It turns out that the heat exchanger may have broken for more than just a few reasons, and one of the main problems might have been dirty filters. I am guilty of leaving my furnace filters unchanged for years due to the fact that I did not remember replacing them at any point. It is possible that they plugged over time and, as such, hindered free airflow, then consequently, this may have triggered overheating, which then caused the exchanger to break down, then my Heating & A/C business confirmed this plus recommended that I should upgrade the filters every month to be on the safe side. Other reasons that may also trigger exchanger problems include an oversized furnace, and this means that the furnace is likely to heat the home too fast, starting the control system, which then shuts down! Frequent furnace cycles caused by large or insufficient furnace sizes may lead to expansion and contraction of the heat exchanger, which stresses the exchanger, causing it to crack. The heat exchanger should be treated carefully, considering its importance to the heating process. Without it, the furnace is practically useless. Talk to the furnace repair professionals if the exchanger cracks. They are likely to suggest you on better management plus care.
