Is Your Furnace Leaking Carbon Monoxide?

Professional Tips to Detect and Prevent Leaks

Heating season is here, and your local comfort specialists at Comfort Solutions HVAC would like to help you avoid any safety issues emanating from your home’s furnace. Most furnaces use gas; therefore, they do run the risk of leaking carbon monoxide. While a furnace has safety measures in place to keep carbon monoxide from coming back into your home, sometimes these methods fail.

Luckily, there are ways you can prevent carbon monoxide from coming back into your home, and methods to detect it so that you keep your family safe.

Here is what we recommend for preventing and detecting carbon monoxide leaks:

Install a Carbon Monoxide Detector: Carbon monoxide is odorless and colorless; therefore, the only way to identify high levels in your home is a specialized detector. Every home should have a carbon monoxide detector installed on each level – and especially outside the utility room where your furnace sits.

Regular Maintenance on Your Furnace: The best way to prevent carbon monoxide leaks from a furnace is seasonal maintenance. During your maintenance appointment, your technician cleans, inspects, and identifies any potential leaks.

If it has been a while since your last service appointment, or you are concerned about potential carbon monoxide leaks, call in the specialists from Comfort Solutions HVAC. We can do a seasonal tune-up and inspection to ensure your home’s furnace is safe and carbon monoxide is properly filtered out of your home.

For older furnaces, consider replacing your unit now. Newer units have better energy efficiency and fewer issues when it comes to carbon monoxide hazards.

Whether you need furnace tune-ups, or you want to talk about replacing your existing furnace, reach out to our team here at Comfort Solutions HVAC in Easton, PA.
