Is your gas heater safe for winter use? Sooner or later, cooler temperatures are coming to East Texas! As our days begin to get shorter, it’s a reminder that cooler weather is coming and time to get your gas furnace checked.
No one wants to get hit by surprise when the cold front is here and the furnace will not kick on. You may be a jack of all trades, but when it comes to your gas furnace–beware, contact All Seasons and let a licensed professional service. Gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning are dangerous and if you don’t know what you are doing it could be a fatal mistake.
Gas leaks can be scary and should be not be taken lightly. Additionally, there was over 41,000 faulty heaters which were recalled last year. It just makes good sense to get your gas heater serviced at least every other year to ensure safety and efficiency. If your heater is older than 10 years, we recommend servicing annually.
Rest assured, at All Seasons we want you and your family to be comfortable and safe this winter season. As part of our Winter Tune-Up, we will do a complete inspection of your HVAC Heating System and follow manufactures guidelines for maintaining and optimizing your system efficiency. If new parts are necessary, we will provide you with a explanation and costs required for repair upfront.
A few Home Heating Safety Tips:
Fire Place Hazard:
Make sure you check your flue before starting a fire in the fireplace.
Space Heater Safety
If you have to use a space heater, make sure you keep them away from furniture and Christmas Trees and never place anything on top of them, especially towels or clothes.
Aerosols & Chemicals Hazards
Don’t store aerosols, alcohol, or any chemicals in your gas furnace closet or in close proximity to your furnace.
If you smell gas and suspect a gas leak, please do not ignore it! Turn the heater off immediately and call a licensed gasfitter.
