The Leading Cause of Poisoning Death in the U.S.
It’s not accidental ingestion of cleaning products. Or of medications. Or exposure to lead paints. You might be surprised to find…
Carbon Monoxide is the leading cause of poisoning deaths in the U.S. The danger is especially high in the colder months due to emissions from home furnaces.
To protect your family from the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning:
• Install a Carbon Monoxide alarm in a central location outside each sleeping area.
• Have your vehicle inspected for exhaust leaks.
• Have fuel burning home appliances checked annually by professionals (like us).
At the start of the heating season, a homeowner took the inspection cover off his gas furnace and saw rust inside the cabinet. The furnace was working fine, and he was comfortable in the home. From that perspective, there was nothing wrong. But should that rust really be there?
Sure, it could be normal signs of an aging system – or perhaps something worse. If it’s a rusty heat exchanger, that’s a sign of a problem. If the heat exchanger has leaks or cracks, that could allow carbon monoxide to leak.
A professional contractor can take a look and make your seasonal tune-up both energy-saving and life-saving.
