Common Furnace FAQs
Unless you’re a trained professional, you likely don’t know the ins and outs of what makes your furnace operate effectively and efficiently. We get countless inquiries about furnaces from homeowners throughout St. Paul, so we’ve compiled some of the most common questions we receive.
Why Does My Furnace Smell Like Gas?
Does your furnace smell like gas when you turn it on? This isn’t normal and signifies a potentially dangerous issue. As natural gas is highly flammable and toxic to breathe, a suspected gas leak should be treated with urgency. Furnace gas leaks can be caused by things like a gas line leak, combustion leaks (back-drafting), or a cracked heat exchanger. All of these issues require professional furnace repair.
What to do if your furnace smells like gas:
- Immediately turn the furnace off
- Open some windows for ventilation
- Stay out of your house to avoid breathing gas
- Call your local gas company to request an inspection
- Contact HomeWorks to diagnose and fix any issues with your furnace
What is the typical service life of a furnace?
You can expect your furnace to last between 20-30 years. It’s a good idea to begin the process of researching and shopping for a new furnace once yours hits the 15-year mark. Remember, the older your home’s furnace, the more likely it is to operate less effectively and efficiently for you.
Can a furnace be repaired?
Yes, a furnace can be repaired. The question is usually, “Should a furnace be repaired?” If you’ve had two or more furnace repairs in one year, a furnace replacement is probably the most economical choice.

- Rooms too hot/too cold – You shouldn’t have to constantly adjust the thermostat for heating/cooling comfort.
- Utility bill increases – This may mean your unit is working harder to provide the same level of comfort.
How much does it cost to repair a furnace?

Is a furnace leaking water dangerous?
If you see water pooling on the floor near your furnace, there’s no immediate danger, but you definitely have a problem. If left unchecked, this can lead to more serious (and expensive) repairs. It’s usually a condensation leak from a clogged or broken condensation drain/line.
What does it mean to have your furnace serviced?
A heating unit is one of your biggest financial investments, and it’s worth it to keep it running efficiently as long as possible. Furnace maintenance is the key to energy efficiency and a longer-lasting heating system. Regular, professional maintenance is the best way to prolong the life of your HVAC system and lower utility bills.
What is AFUE?
The annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) measures the amount of heat delivered to your home compared to the fuel supplied to the furnace. The higher the AFUE, the greater the system’s efficiency. ENERGY STAR-certified furnaces are your best bet, which operate at an AFUE of 85-90% or greater.
Is there anything I can do to help maintain my furnace?
Keeping your filter clean is one of the most important steps you can take to maintain your home’s furnace. Another important preventative measure you can take is scheduling routine maintenance. Furnaces that have routine, preventative maintenance performed are much more likely to enjoy a long and effective service life.
How often should I have my ductwork cleaned or repaired?
Properly installed ductwork shouldn’t need repairs, however, if you see a spike in your energy bill, you may have a costly leak in your air ducts. As far as cleaning goes, the National Air Duct Cleaners Association (yes, it’s a real thing) recommends having your air ducts cleaned every 3-5 years.
