It’s time for Furnace Repair: Tis the season for…Carbon Monoxide?
Yes, winter is almost here, as is Christmas. That means most people’s furnaces are hard at work keeping their home warm. Hopefully, all those furnaces have received their annual safety inspection and tune-up.
The fall furnace repair service is key, important, necessary, critical, essential……….well, you get the idea. If you own a GAS OR OIL FURNACE, there are important safety issues that have to be addressed annually, because improper maintenance can allow dangerous operating conditions to go undetected, putting the homeowner and their families at risk of Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
Carbon Monoxide or CO can be created by any one of a number of improper operating conditions that only a professional HVAC technician can identify. Not only are most homeowners unable to identify and correct these dangerous mechanical problems, but CO is also even more dangerous because it has no visibility or odor.
The only way you know you are being poisoned by CO is when you hit the floor! And that is a bit late. The bottom line is, that if you own a gas or oil furnace, you have a responsibility to yourself and your family to get it serviced once a year at the start of the heating season. Fortunately, this is not expensive.
For instance, if you are on our PCSA plan (Preferred Customer Service Agreement), it costs less than $100.00. There is just no reason to endanger your family or friends for a kind of money. Plus a furnace tune-up will make your furnace operate more efficiently, so generally, it pays for itself over the season.
If your furnace has not had its annual service, please call our office at (509) 924-0018 and schedule one today. 12/10/14
