Gas Furnace – Friend or Foe?
Gas is such a cost-effective source of fuel for your furnace, and allows you to do your part to curb your carbon footprint on the environment. Gas, however, should never be taken for granted. It can be volatile, and dangerous if not treated with the respect it deserves.
In order to ensure the safety of your system, and of your family, your furnace installation service Ottawa IL must be carried out by a reputable agent. A contractor with a proven track record of satisfactory installations, and experience in installing gas furnaces.
A gas furnace installed with a lack of care and quality, can be a ticking time bomb just waiting to explode. Explosions, fires, and gas leaks are all very real possibilities, which could result in harm, or even death.
There are special precautions that you can take in order to safeguard yourself, your family, and your pets from any danger. Installation of carbon monoxide alarms and excessive flow shut off valves as additional items can be of great value. Carbon monoxide can go unnoticed for extended periods due to the lack of odor, it can however, be extremely dangerous if inhaled in large quantities. The carbon monoxide alarm will alert you to any excessive readings of the gas in the air. The shut off valve on the other hand will simply shut off the flow of gas to the system and your home, if there appears to be an excessive use of gas. This could be due to a leak in your setup. Always keep the area around your gas furnace clear of any flammable materials. The area around the furnace becomes extremely hot, and if exposed to heat for extended periods, the flammable items may become a fire hazard.
If at any time you fear a gas leak, fire danger, or possibility of explosion, shut off the gas supply to your home and evacuate. Call the authorities, and your service provider who will do a thorough inspection and notify you when it is safe to enter your home again. Where gas is concerned, it is always better to be safe than sorry.
