Your gas furnace does a great job keeping you warm through the long Connecticut winter –but could it also be making you sick? It could be if your furnace hasn’t been properly cared for or isn’t functioning the way it should be.
Here are three possible heating system problems that could be affecting the air you’re breathing at home.
Check your filter at least once a month during peak heating (and cooling) seasons, replacing (or cleaning, depending on the model) the filter as needed.
That’s why it’s so important to learn the symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning, to install CO detectors at every level of your Connecticut home, and to have your furnace professionally inspected and maintained every year.
One problem that plagues many older systems is a cracked heat exchanger – a dangerous problem that can release CO into your home. If you have an older furnace, annual inspections are essential – and replacing your old equipment with a safe, high-efficiency propane furnace is often a smart move.
