Is Your Furnace Leaking Carbon Monoxide

What’s that in the air? Is it a whiff of Autumn? Is there a hint of color in the aspens? OK, we know normal people aren’t starting their Christmas shopping just yet, but it is time to prepare for the change in seasons.

Before you start pulling the skis and snowboards out of the closets and attics, Climate Control Company wants to make sure you take care of something we believe is more important. Making sure your heating system is ready to keep you comfortable and safe.

Furnace tune-up

This is the best way to make sure your heating system is up to the challenge of cold weather ahead. You may think it’s too early to think about turning the heat on, but if you’ve lived in Glenwood Springs, CO or anywhere on the Western Slope for very long you know the temperatures can drop suddenly. The last thing you want is no heat in the house because you ignored your seasonal maintenance.

Beware the silent killer

Is your furnace leaking carbon monoxide? Considering you can’t smell it, see it, or taste it there’s no way for you to answer that question. It’s another reason why a furnace tune-up is so important. This should also include appliance safety checks because any devices burning fuel must be tested by an expert who has the proper equipment to detect the presence of this silent killer. On average, about 400 people are killed every year in this country by carbon monoxide poisoning. Don’t gamble on becoming a statistic. Call and schedule your HVAC tune-up now.

CO detectors & Monitors

Now is also the time to make sure your carbon monoxide detectors are working properly. If you don’t have CO detectors, we urge you to buy and install them. Notice we are talking “plural” because to be effective there should be at least one detector on EVERY level in the home. If you don’t feel comfortable doing it yourself, don’t hesitate to call us. Detectors or monitors are a pretty small investment for something that could save your life.
