Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Save Money with Rob's Albertan Service Experts

September 03, 2016

Can you smell that? The apple cider, the pumpkin spice lattes, the dry leaves? Yes…fall is coming. Are you ready! Have you received your football tickets to your favorite team? Have you put away your swimsuits and wedges and pulled out your cardigans and boots? Have you swapped your cotton sheets for flannel ones to help you stay cozy when the temperatures drop?

Have you examined your home’s carbon monoxide detector?

 

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

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be fatal to adults, children, and pets. Upwards of 20,000 people end up in the emergency room annually due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Typical CO poisoning symptoms consist of dizziness, headache, chest pain, and upset stomach. Due to the fact that the symptoms seem like the flu, many people may not understand they could be seriously ill.

With cooler temperatures driving homeowners to turn on their furnaces, carbon monoxide poisoning spikes during the winter months while homeowners are doing everything they can to keep warm. When appropriately installed by trained professionals, equipment such as furnaces will safety express carbon monoxide outdoors, but your furnace should be inspected annually to make sure there are no issues that could result in poisoning from CO.

Rob's Albertan Service Experts recommends replacing your carbon monoxide detectors every five years, and testing your carbon monoxide and fire detectors each month to verify the batteries and alarm are working properly. Right now is the ideal time to check your home’s CO and smoke detectors, and replace or install them if necessary.

Included in a Precision tune-up from Rob's Albertan Service Experts, our technicians will test your furnace to make sure it is operating properly and inspect for carbon monoxide leaks. Through November 25th, Rob's Albertan Service Experts will be giving discounts on our heating and air conditioning Precision tune-ups to help homeowners make sure their furnace will run safety and efficiently all through the cooler months. You can also get U.S. governmental tax credits of up to $500 for certain HVAC equipment that can be earned throughout the rest of 2016.
