The Bay Area’s Peninsula Heating by James Byrne, the most trusted HVAC systems and furnace repair company in the South San Francisco and Bay areas, is currently featuring free carbon monoxide inspections for homes.
“This winter season, the professionals at Peninsula Heating can help conduct a free carbon monoxide safety inspection of your heating units, furnaces, fireplaces and chimneys to find any potential risks,” Patricia Byrne of Peninsula Heating said.
In regards to heating systems, carbon monoxide leaks are the most common safety issue in homes. Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas produced by heating units, such as furnaces, water heaters and gas appliances. Due to its colorless, tasteless and odorless nature, it seeps into homes unnoticed until it is too late. Homeowners need to take steps to protect themselves and their families against carbon monoxide poisoning.
“It is important that homeowners have their heating units, especially those placed in poorly vented or enclosed areas, regularly inspected and maintained by trained professionals,” Byrne said.
Carbon monoxide is generated by malfunctioning furnaces, water heaters, central heating systems, room heaters, refrigerators, engine-powered equipment, gas and wood fireplaces, gas stoves, and oil furnaces. A single crack in any part of a heating unit can result in the leaking of this hazardous gas and its diffusion throughout the entire household.
Peninsula Heating by James Byrne suggests that in addition to regular checkups and maintenance, homeowners should prevent the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning by not using unvented, fuel-based appliances in the home, especially where people sleep.
