Signs of a Carbon Monoxide Leak
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a colorless, odorless gas which makes it difficult to detect. If you don’t have one already, ensure you install carbon monoxide detectors and check that they are properly working.
Here are a few signs of a carbon monoxide leak:
The burner flame is yellow instead of blue (for a gas-powered furnace)
Excessive soot around furnace
Lack of upward draft in your chimney
Condensation and excessive moisture on walls and windows
Rust on flue pipes or pipe connections
If you notice any of the signs above, call a gas repair technician immediately and ventilate your home.
Symptoms of Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
If carbon monoxide finds a way into your home, it can be hazardous to your health. If exposed for too long, carbon monoxide fills your body and prevents oxygen from circulating to your organs and tissues. How have you been feeling? Here are a few signs of carbon monoxide poisoning:
Dull, throbbing headache
Dizziness or nausea
Why You Should Replace Your Furnace
Energy prices continue to rise. It costs more to heat your home than before, so it makes good financial sense to have a high-efficiency furnace. Today’s furnaces employ advanced technology to make them more efficient than ever before.
When shopping for a furnace, look for the ENERGY STAR® label with the AFUE (annual fuel utilization efficiency) rating. This measures how efficient the system is over the course of a year. The minimum AFUE rating for a fossil-fuel-powered furnace is 80%. If your furnace is over 10 years old, it had an AFUE ranging from 56% to 80%.
Here are a few features new furnaces have:
Electric ignition which stops the need to have the pilot light constantly on.
Advanced combustion technologies that are better at extracting heat.
Improved safety with sealed combustion that uses outdoor air for combustion and reduces draft.
