With heating season just about to kick into high gear, most of us wonder about common heating related questions such as:
- How cold will it get this winter? and how much is it going to cost for fuel?
- Did we get the furnace cleaned and tuned? or did we change the air filter?
- Is the oil or propane tank full?
Should I Be Concerned About Carbon Monoxide?
How often do you think about carbon monoxide? Unless you heat with electric, most likely you are using some type of fossil fuel that creates a poisonous gas when burnt. According to the Journal of the American Medical Association, “Fifteen hundred (1,500) people die annually due to improperly vented gas fired appliances such as water heaters, clothes dryers, ovens and heating equipment”.
An Annual Heating System Tune-up Could Save Your Life
An annual heating system tune-up is essential to maintaining the safety and reliability of your gas or oil fired furnace. At R.E. Sanders, our technicians will clean and check for the presence of carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless and tasteless. Due to the dangers of carbon monoxide, we highly suggest you hire a professional, such as RE Sanders, to ensure you and your family have a safe and healthy heating season.
