When we had the heating and cooling professional come out to take care of the repair of our central gas furnace, I didn’t know about the ventless gas furnace in the basement.
The gas furnace is really the only heating unit in the basement since the central heating unit doesn’t link to any heating and cooling vents in the basement, however we basically just rely on the ventless gas furnace, but lately it has been experiencing some problems.
I sincerely should have thought to ask the heating and cooling professional to tune up that unit too, but it just wasn’t something that I thought of. I ended up turning off the gas to the gas furnace unit and took it apart myself. I should have just called the heating and cooling business again, although I was stubborn and inspected the problem myself. I was basically just trying to clean the pilot light and the gas burners. Everything seemed to be in fantastic condition, there was just a lot of dust buildup inside the heating unit. I was able to wipe everything to satisfaction, but when I was putting the unit 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, however when she came down to see all the blood, she freaked out, but she helped me stop the bleeding with pressure on my wound and took me to the hospital. I was stitched up and even the doctors and nurses said I should never work on a heating and cooling unit without any qualifications.
