4 dangers you can avoid with a furnace safety inspection
- Carbon monoxide poisoning. Cracks in your furnace’s heat exchanger can allow deadly carbon monoxide into your home.
- Fire danger. Several common furnace problems can make your furnace a fire danger, including a temperature control failure, a flame roll-out disaster and a delayed ignition.
- Toxic gas leaks. If your safety pressure control fails, toxic gas can leak into your home.
- Other toxic fumes. A clogged exhaust system (or one improperly installed) allows toxic fumes into your home that can cause headaches, nausea and other serious injuries.
Read on to learn a few ways we’ll help keep you and your home safe this winter season:
- Check all high voltage wires to ensure loose wires don’t cause fires
