Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) October 02, 2011
Gillece Services, a new Technical Excellence Member of the National Comfort Institute, is now preparing to become skill-certified in Carbon Monoxide (CO) Safety & Combustion Analysis with the National Comfort Institute as a proactive measure to help prevent on-going Carbon Monoxide poisonings and occasional, unfortunate CO-related fatalities in Pittsburgh and its surrounding communities. In addition to offering superior Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric services, Gillece is now preparing to become the certified local expert for household Carbon Monoxide detection, leak prevention services, combustion analysis and CO alarm installation.
Carbon Monoxide poisoning contributes annually to thousands of deaths in the United States, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that 8,000 to 15,000 people each year are examined or treated in hospitals for non-fire related Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Breathed over long periods of time, low concentrations of Carbon Monoxide may also contribute to other illness. An odorless, colorless gas, Carbon Monoxide can build up to dangerous concentrations when fuel-burning devices are not properly operated, vented or maintained and is completely undetected by smell, taste or sight. Common sources of Carbon Monoxide in homes include fuel-burning devices such as furnaces, gas/kerosene space heaters, boilers, gas cooking stoves, water heaters, clothes dryers, fireplaces, charcoal grills, wood stoves, power generators, motor vehicles, etc.
Many companies and industry Technicians are not properly trained in Carbon Monoxide Safety & Combustion Analysis. More than likely, most Technicians will often install a new furnace or hot water heater and never do any combustion safety and efficiency analysis. Carbon Monoxide testing is a vital process that should be performed on every fuel burning appliance in the home, yet very few Technicians have the knowledge to do these tests and do them properly. And, it is not a requirement of the industry to mandate this testing.
National Comfort Institute Certified Carbon Monoxide & Combustion Specialists receive the highest level of training on the hazards and effects of Carbon Monoxide and how to test for them and the means to prevent danger in the future. CO testing is key and accurate CO testing is even more essential. NCI Certified Gillece Specialists will complete training on proper procedures for venting, combustion air, and fuel adjustment to maximize the efficiency of fuel burning appliances and verify everything works safely together.
