Here in Delaware County and its surrounding towns and cities, temperatures can drop pretty low in the fall and winter months. Because of this, homeowners are starting to prepare their houses for the many chilly evenings we are all soon to face. If you’ve already got your HVAC inspection completed, then you’re probably thinking that your gas or oil heating system is good to go, right? Not necessarily.
If your heat source vents through a chimney, then it is vital that you call in a certified sweep to look things over. Your HVAC specialist will probably take a glance at your flue, and they may even clear a bit of debris out of the bottom, but this isn’t nearly enough. Annual inspections for your chimney are a key part in keeping your system running as safely and as efficiently as possible, and here at Lou Curley’s Chimney Service, we are qualified to help.
Avoiding Carbon Monoxide Exposure
So, what is one of the biggest threats a homeowner with a plugged up flue could face? Well, carbon monoxide is definitely something to be wary of. This gas can be deadly when not addressed quickly enough, but many people never become aware of exposure due to its colorless and odorless nature.
Since it is next to impossible to detect, investing in regular maintenance is extremely important, and it could make all the difference in keeping your loved ones in better health this holiday season.
We also urge homeowners to invest in carbon monoxide detectors if they have not already. Also, be sure to regularly check and change the batteries in these devices. These practices could save a life!
