What to do if San Diego Gas and Electric Finds a Cracked Heat Exchanger in Your Furnace

One of the most common calls that heating and air conditioning contractors get during the fall and winter seasons, comes after San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) performs a furnace inspection for a homeowner and tells the customer that they have a cracked heat exchanger. A cracked heat exchanger is a serious issue – so much so that SDG&E usually puts a red tag on the furnace and may shut off the gas, lock the utility meter or actually completely disconnect the furnace.

“The key to making a home or other building more thermally efficient and comfortable in cold weather is to limit the opportunities for these losses,” says Gabriel Carini, an Alpine and San Diego heating repair expert.

There are two major ways buildings lose heat: conduction and infiltration. Conduction is heat transfer through materials, and infiltration means air is moving through cracks and joints. These are the areas to focus on when working to weatherize a home.
