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

September 03, 2016

Do you smell that? The apple cider, the pumpkin spice lattes, the dry leaves? Yes…fall is coming. Time to get ready! Have you received your game tickets to your alma mater? Have you put away your tank tops and wedges and pulled out your coats and boots? Have you replaced your cotton sheets with flannel sheets to help you stay warm when the cooler temperatures arrive?

Have you tested your home’s carbon monoxide detector?

 

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

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be lethal to adults, children, and pets. Upwards of 20,000 people visit the emergency room each year due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Usual CO poisoning symptoms are headache, dizziness, upset stomach, and weakness. Since the symptoms mimic the flu, many people do not understand they could be gravely ill.

With cooler temperatures driving homeowners to start up their furnaces, carbon monoxide poisoning spikes during the cooler months while everyone is doing everything they can to keep comfortable. When appropriately installed by trained professionals, appliances such as furnaces will safety vent carbon monoxide outside, but your furnace should be inspected each year to confirm there are no issues that could produce poisoning from CO.

Jack Nelson Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning suggests replacing your carbon monoxide detectors every five years, and testing your carbon monoxide and fire detectors every month to verify the batteries and alarm are functioning properly. Today is the ideal time to inspect your home’s CO and smoke detectors, and replace or install them if necessary.

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