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

September 03, 2016

Smell that? The apple cider, the pumpkin spice lattes, the brisk air? Ahhh…fall is coming. Time to get ready! Have you purchased your season tickets to your favorite team? Have you put away your shorts and sandals and pulled out your sweaters and boots? Have you swapped your cotton sheets for flannel ones to help you stay cozy when the cold sets in?

Have you inspected your home’s carbon monoxide detector?

 

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

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be fatal to children, adults, and pets. Upwards of 20,000 people visit the emergency room annually because of carbon monoxide poisoning. Common CO poisoning symptoms consist of dizziness and/or weakness, headache, and upset stomach. Because the symptoms mimic the flu, many people might not realize they could be very ill.

With the drop in temperatures causing homeowners to turn on their furnaces, carbon monoxide poisoning increases during the cold months while everyone is doing everything they can to stay comfortable. When properly installed by trained experts, appliances such as furnaces will safety release carbon monoxide outdoors, but your furnace should be inspected annually to make sure there are no issues that could cause poisoning from carbon monoxide.

Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning suggests replacing your carbon monoxide detectors every five years, and checking your carbon monoxide and fire detectors monthly to verify the batteries and alarm are functioning properly. Fall is the ideal time to inspect your home’s CO and smoke detectors, and install or replace them if needed.

With a Precision tune-up from Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning, our technicians will inspect your furnace to make sure it is operating properly and inspect for carbon monoxide leaks. Through November 25th, Eveready Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning will be giving discounts on our HVAC Precision tune-ups to help people make sure their furnace will run safety and efficiently throughout the upcoming cold season. You can also get U.S. governmental tax credits of up to $500 for specific HVAC equipment that can be earned through the end of 2016.
