    So, Den…I guess it’s a bad thing when I turn on my central heater and I hear a bit of a booming thud coming from the heater closet, open the door and it happens again, accompanied by a bit of a flash? Gas leak?

    I have smelled a faint odor of gas the past couple of weeks. The heater otherwise seems to be working fine after this.

      Find an old spray bottle, 1 tsp Dawn after filling with water, put sprayer back on and shake the bottle to mix in the Dawn. Pull of the front cover by lifting and pulling toward you. Locate the incoming gas pipes and spray the joints with the soap and watch for bubbles, they would take a minute to blow up bubbles, don’t be stingy with soap.

      Could be a faulty control valve (likely), spray that too. Leave the cover off turn up the thermostat and watch it light up, watch for the pilot/ piezo, it could be a poorly aligned with the burner letting the burner load up before it fires off.

      If the furnace is over 15 years old it is a senior citizen, replace it with a late model high efficiency one if you can afford to do so.

      Call the gas company for an inspection if no bubbles are seen and it still stinks, they usually do that free, unless of course they are money grubbing assholes and want to charge you, in that case if you have not blown up yet, fuggetaboutit.

      Change the filter to a pleated variety monthly.

      So sez Den

        Thanks, Den. Home was built in ’89, so it might need replacing.

        ‘Bout three years ago my downstairs tenant smelled gas, called a heating company, turns out the pipe leading into her abode was leaking. The excavator pierced my pipe when performing his duties. I’m told the 10’ cloud of gas that caused was pretty spectacular, fortunately did not ignite.
