With winter on the way, it is time to have your heater serviced.
A service should include the following points:
1) Test for electrical safety.
2) Check for carbon monoxide.
3) Check for correct operation.
4) Clean out pressure hoses.
5) Check and clean the heat exchanger.
6) Check the gas pressure.
7) Clean return air filters.
8) Check the condition of the flue.
The health and safety of your family is the top priority. A cold home can cause extreme discomfort. Also, don’t forget about the comfort of your pets! Some animals and reptiles require warmer temperatures to stay healthy. One other item to consider is electronics and other devices that must be stored in conditioned spaces to keep them working.
Another consideration is air quality. Indoor air quality becomes more of a concern in the winter months when coughs, colds and flu are more common, and doors are less likely to be left open to bring in the fresh air.
Any heat source fuelled by natural gas will generate some carbon monoxide. If the heater does not vent the odourless gas to the outdoor space, it can be dangerous for your family.
Nortan HVAC technicians are qualified to test for the presence of carbon monoxide being emitted from your heater.
