Common Furnace FAQs
Why does my furnace smell like gas?
A gas smell could indicate a potentially dangerous issue. Natural gas is highly flammable and toxic to breathe, and you should urgently respond to a gas leak. Furnace gas leaks can be caused by gas line leaks, combustion leaks, 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

Is there anything I can do to help maintain my furnace?

Furnaces that have routine preventative maintenance performed are much more likely to enjoy a long and effective service life.
What is an AFUE rating?
The annual fuel utilization efficiency (AFUE) rating measures the amount of heat delivered to your home compared to the fuel supplied to the furnace. The higher the AFUE rating, the greater the system’s efficiency. ENERGY STAR® certified furnaces are your best bet because they operate at an AFUE rating of 85% to 90%.
