A Crash Course On Gas Furnace Safety
While furnaces are efficient and reliable sources of heat, homeowners must understand how to use them safely. In this blog post, Climate Systems Heating and Cooling will take you through a crash course on furnace safety to keep your home safe and warm.
Get Yearly Furnace Inspections
A yearly furnace inspection ensures your system is perfectly safe to use. An HVAC professional can identify any potential problems that could compromise your furnace’s safety and ensure everything is working properly during operation.
Have Carbon Monoxide Detectors in Your Home
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can be deadly if it accumulates in a confined space. By installing these detectors, you’ll be alerted if any dangerous levels of carbon monoxide are present and can address the issue quickly.
Change Your Furnace Filter Every Few Months
Furnace filters are designed to keep dust and other debris from entering the system, but they can get clogged over time. To ensure your furnace is working as safely and efficiently as possible, you should change your filter every few months or as the manufacturer recommends.
Keep Air Vents Uncovered
When the weather gets colder, it can be tempting to block off air vents in certain rooms of your home to keep them warmer. However, this can cause your furnace to work harder and be at risk of overheating. To ensure your furnace is running safely, ensure all air vents are uncovered and unobstructed.
