Stay Safe: Carbon Monoxide Warning

The Danger No One Can See or Smell in Your Home

If you have a gas or oil furnace, boiler, stove, hot water heater, kerosene heater or other, similar appliance in your home, don’t take chances when it comes to carbon monoxide.

An odorless, colorless gas, carbon monoxide displaces oxygen in your bloodstream by attaching itself to hemoglobin. At best, carbon monoxide poisoning can cause fatigue, lethargy, nausea and headache. At worst, it can spell a lethal tragedy for everyone exposed in your home.

Warmer Weather? Call For An Inspection Today!

As the cold season winds down and your furnace is unused, consider getting in touch with a reputable HVAC company like Air-Tro for a professional inspection and assessment of your equipment. Anything from a cracked heat exchanger, damaged flue pipes or chimney can harbor large amounts of this flammable gas.

Greater Safety and Real Money Savings in Lower Energy Costs

Only with regular, yearly inspections and maintenance can you ensure these appliances will be safely operated within your home. It’s an easy appointment and will bring you peace of mind throughout the year. Other good news? A well maintained HVAC system will also save you money, with lower energy bills and repair costs. That’s real money in your pocket, instead of giving it to the utility companies. And who doesn’t need some extra cash?

CO Detectors Make Sense

We also recommend buying and installing inexpensive CO detectors throughout your home and areas where you house these appliances. Whether you choose a simple, battery operated detector or a top of the line, digital “smart” monitor, these are small but lifesaving investments in your family’s future.

Carbon monoxide is the leading cause of death by poisoning today in the United States. Don’t become a statistic or a victim of a preventable tragedy.

We love our clients, and want you to stay healthy for a long time to come. You deserve the best air quality possible, 365 days a year!
