Our hearts go out to the millions of people impacted by Winter Storms Uri and Viola. If your home’s heating system has been impacted by this week’s severe winter weather, here is some helpful information and resources available to you: For installations involving 90 Plus high efficiency gas-fired furnaces which may have been exposed to temperatures below 32°F (0°C), please take precautions when restarting the furnace and look for any presence of water at or around the furnace. If water is observed, please contact a licensed professional contractor to evaluate the situation and determine cause. The contractor should ensure that the drain trap and connected drain pipe have not frozen and are not cracked due to freezing temperatures. For future operation, local codes and practices should be followed in order to prevent freezing.
