Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning is called the silent killer for a reason. Gas appliances are the main culprits and should be installed and maintained only by Certified Professionals. Although there may be a slight odour from some appliances, many times there are no signs or symptoms of a carbon monoxide build-up. You may feel slightly nauseous or have a headache, leading to vomiting, confusion, and dizziness. Often, there are no warning signs whatsoever and, by the time a CO build-up is discovered, it’s too late - the victims fall unconscious from breathing in the CO and, if not found or treated, die. Having your gas appliances maintained regularly and having CO monitors in your home can prevent this unnecessary tragedy.
Signs you might have a problem:
- Do you have a flickering yellow light on your gas furnace instead of blue?
- Do you get inconsistent heat in different areas of your home?
- Are there knocking, pounding, rattling, or scraping sounds coming from your furnace room?
- Have you noticed your heating bill unusually rising for the time of year?
Call the experts at PAPA and we’ll ensure your furnace is heating your home safely and efficiently.
