A furnace is one of the most important components of your home because it keeps you warm during the cold months. While most furnaces are perfectly safe, old or damaged furnaces have the potential to distribute carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, and very harmful gas, throughout your home. When a carbon monoxide leak occurs, you may not even be aware that there is a problem. At Duggan’s One Hour we want to keep you both warm and safe by taking care of all of your furnace repair needs.
Carbon Monoxide Calls Are More Frequent in the Winter
Several recent reports show that more people deal with carbon monoxide problems in the winter due to malfunctioning ovens, water heaters, furnaces, and other equipment. Many people turn on a furnace that has not been used for several months before checking to see if it is working properly. As a furnace ages and experiences wear and tear over the years, several of its components may become cracked or rusted. This leads to carbon monoxide potentially leaking out. A furnace repair specialist can help people ensure that their furnace is working properly throughout the winter months.
