February Tip Of The Month

Over time furnaces can develop small cracks in the combustion chamber. These cracks may not be visible to the naked eye. It is through these cracks that carbon monoxide can leak into your home. Also, furnaces that require lubrication on the motors and bearings should be checked by your heating technician once a year.

Safety Tips For Your Heater

Do not have anything combustible within 6” of your vent pipe. Do not close off more than 20% of the registers in your home. This can cause high resistance and unnecessary heat building up in the furnace. Do not store combustible materials such as paint thinners or gasoline near your furnace.
