When we had the Heating and A/C professional come out to take care of the maintenance of our central gas furnace, I didn’t think about the ventless gas furnace in the basement.
The gas furnace is really the only gas furnace in the basement since the central gas furnace doesn’t connect to any Heating and A/C vents in the basement, however we basically just rely on the ventless gas furnace, but lately it had been experiencing some problems, however I truthfully should have thought to ask the Heating and A/C professional to tune up that component too, but it just wasn’t something that I thought of.
I ended up turning off the gas to the gas furnace component and took it apart myself. I should have just called the Heating and A/C company again, but I was stubborn and worked on the problem myself. I was basically just trying to clean the pilot light and the gas burners, and everything seemed to be in fantastic condition, there was just a lot of dust buildup inside the heating unit. I was able to clean everything to my satisfaction, but when I was putting the components back together, I cut myself on a sharp piece of metal! There was blood gushing everywhere and I shouted for my wife to get some towels and bandages! When she came down to see all the blood, he freaked out, however he helped me stop the bleeding with pressure on the wound and took me to the hospital. I was stitched up and even the nurses and doctors said I should never work on Heating and A/C component without any qualifications.
