One of the most concerning things for any homeowner with a furnace is the risk of a gas leak. Leaks can be very dangerous and life-threatening if not dealt with right away. If you have an older furnace, it could be at higher risk for a leak, or if the pilot light won’t stay lit, it may be time to replace your furnace. At Raco Air, we can repair any furnace model, making your home safe from gas leaks, and ensuring that the pilot light will stay lit. We can also inspect your high limit switch, making sure that it’s operating correctly.

The high limit switch is a sensor inside your furnace that monitors the unit’s temperature and shuts down the gas valve if it becomes too hot. Once the temperature lowers, the gas is allowed to flow again, and the furnace turns back on. If this safety valve is faulty, your furnace can overheat and become damaged by high temperature. We can test the high limit switch to make sure that it’s working properly and that it will function correctly during the winter heating season.

If you smell gas, it’s imperative that you call your gas emergency line right away and leave your house as soon as possible. Once the emergency has been handled, Raco Air can provide the necessary repairs and replacement to keep your pilot light on, your gas supply flowing, and your high limit switch operational.
