Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Save Money with Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning

September 03, 2016

Can you smell that? The cinnamon pastries, the pumpkin spice lattes, the leather footballs? Ahhh…fall is coming. Let’s get ready! Have you received your game tickets to your favorite team? Have you put away your shorts and wedges and pulled out your cardigans and boots? Have you changed your sheets from cotton to flannel to help you stay warm when the temperatures drop?

Have you examined your home’s carbon monoxide detector?

 

Carbon monoxide, according to the CDC, is given off by fireplaces, furnaces, stoves, and gas ranges. The colorless and odorless gas is known as the silent killer because it’s virtually undetectable unless you have a carbon monoxide detector.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be fatal to pets, children, and adults. Upwards of 20,000 people are taken to the emergency room each year because of carbon monoxide poisoning. Usual CO poisoning symptoms are dizziness, headache, chest pain, and upset stomach. Since the symptoms mimic the flu, many people may not understand they could be gravely ill.

With cooler temperatures forcing homeowners to start up their furnaces, carbon monoxide poisoning spikes during the winter months while everyone is doing everything they can to keep warm. When properly installed by licensed technicians, appliances such as furnaces will safety express carbon monoxide outdoors, but your furnace should be checked annually to verify there are no issues that could result in poisoning from the odorless and colorless gas.

Service Experts recommends replacing your carbon monoxide detectors every five years, and checking your carbon monoxide and fire detectors each month to verify the batteries and alarm are operating properly. Today is the perfect time to inspect your home’s CO and smoke detectors, and replace or install them if necessary.

Included in a Precision tune-up from Service Experts, our technicians will inspect your furnace to make sure it is functioning properly and look for carbon monoxide leaks. Through November 25th, Service Experts will be offering discounts on our heating and air conditioning Precision tune-ups to help people make sure their furnace will function safety and efficiently throughout the upcoming cold season. You can also get U.S. governmental tax credits of up to $500 for certain HVAC equipment that can be earned until the end of 2016.
