Avoid Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and Save Money with All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning

September 03, 2016

Can you smell that? The cinnamon pastries, the pumpkin spice lattes, the dry leaves? Ahhh…fall is coming. Time to get ready! Have you received your football tickets to your alma mater? Have you put away your tank tops and sandals and pulled out your sweaters and boots? Have you replaced your cotton sheets with flannel sheets 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 produced by stoves, fireplaces, gas ranges, and furnaces. The colorless and odorless gas is known as the silent killer because it’s essentially undetectable if you don’t have a carbon monoxide detector.

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be fatal to pets, children, and adults. More than 20,000 people visit the emergency room every year due to carbon monoxide poisoning. Common CO poisoning symptoms are headache, dizziness, upset stomach, and weakness. Because the symptoms seem like the flu, many people do not understand they could be extremely ill.

With the drop in temperatures driving homeowners to start up their furnaces, carbon monoxide poisoning increases during the cooler months while people are doing anything they can to stay warm. When properly installed by trained experts, equipment such as furnaces will safety express carbon monoxide outside, but your furnace should be inspected each year to confirm there are no issues that could result in poisoning from carbon monoxide.

Service Experts recommends replacing your carbon monoxide detectors every five years, and assessing your carbon monoxide and fire detectors each month to verify the batteries and alarm are functioning properly. Today 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 Service Experts, our experts will test your furnace to make sure it is functioning properly and check for carbon monoxide leaks. Through November 25th, Service Experts will be providing discounts on our heating and cooling Precision tune-ups to help people make sure their furnace will operate safety and efficiently all through the cooler months. Homeowners can also look into U.S. governmental tax credits of up to $500 for specific HVAC equipment that can be earned until the end of 2016.

To keep your loved ones safe and warm through the cooler months, call All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning today at 386-310-2061to schedule your Fall Precision tune-up, or set up a no-charge in-home estimate for a new, energy-efficient HVAC system.
