Considering what type of heating system is right for your home? How does one system that provides both heating and cooling in one machine?

Many homes around Minnesota have gas furnaces. They’re energy efficient, affordably priced, and keep utility bills down when compared to electric heating systems. However, as with any furnace, there are things that can go wrong. Avoid hazards with your gas furnace by following these gas furnace safety tips.
#1: Keep the intake and exhaust lines clear.
It is important to keep the intake and exhaust lines free of debris or clutter. Don’t store any items like cleaning products, boxes, loose paper, or other flammable objects near the furnace. This could cause an accidental fire. There should always be plenty of clearance around the system.
#2: Install a carbon monoxide detector in your home.
Carbon monoxide (CO) is a clear, odorless gas and if poisoning occurs, it starts with headache and dizziness, upset stomach, or weakness. Gas furnaces, stoves or space heaters can leak carbon monoxide into your home, and it can be deadly. CO detectors are a standard product in most homes but if for some reason you don’t have one, it’s important to invest in one immediately. Even if you don’t have a gas furnace, a carbon monoxide detector is important to have. These are affordably priced in local home improvement stores and can save your life.
#3: Regular preventative maintenance.
Preventative maintenance appointments with our professional team of technicians at Metro Air Heating & Cooling are important. These appointments are the best way to repair and detect any small issues with the furnace that could turn into bigger problems down the road. And while we are on call 24 hours a day for emergency service, you won’t want to experience an unexpected furnace breakdown. This is especially true if your furnace is at the end of its lifespan. We will clean the inside of the system including the air filters and will also make sure all the internal components are functioning as they should together for peak energy efficiency.
Keeping you and your family safe is important, especially now that your furnace is in use in the colder weather. For more information about gas furnace safety or to schedule a repair or maintenance appointment, contact us today!
