Twice a year in the spring and in the fall you should have your heating and AC systems checked. Having a preventative maintenance can help take care of many issues you may run into during the extreme temperatures ahead of time. In the fall it is particularly important to have your furnace checked because of any possible issues that you may have with a possible cracked heat exchanger which causes harmful carbon monoxide leaks.
Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless, tasteless gas. It is produced by the burning of gas, wood, propane, charcoal, or other types of fuel via combustion engines, appliances, or heating systems. Your heating system needs to be check by a licensed contractor at the beginning of fall so that you can know that it is in top working order before the season of colder temperatures begin. Systems can, because of rust, have a cracked heat exchanger which leads to leaks. This will allow carbon monoxide to be leaked into your home.
How will you know if you possible have a leak?
These are some of the symptoms you may notice from Carbon Monoxide poisoning: Dull headaches, muscle weakness, dizziness, nausea and vomitting, shortness of breath, confusion, drowsiness, blurred vision, seizures, loss of consciousness, and chest pain.
