Everyone New Jersey homeowner should have carbon monoxide detectors located throughout their home. Most models of CO alarms are relatively inexpensive, but moreover they can quite literally save your life. If you need help installing your detectors or you aren’t sure what kinds are right for your home, you should call Raynor to help you. We’ve performed installations and safety services for New Jersey residents for over two decades, and we can help ensure that your family is safe all year long with absolutely no worry.
The reason that we bring up carbon monoxide as an issue at this time of year is because wintertime is when most CO related accidents and deaths occur. Why? Mainly because a malfunctioning furnace can be one of the main causes for a CO problem in your home. Gas furnaces, charcoal girls, propane stoves, and portable generators call create CO for the purpose of combustion, but when that combustion goes awry the result is extremely dangerous.
CO is called the “silent killer” for a reason: it’s invisible, has no odor, has no taste, and often so extreme side effects. Carbon monoxide can, as a result, be extremely difficult to detect, and if your detector isn’t functioning you could have some degree of CO already happening in your home.
There is, however, something you can do: have Raynor do a maintenance check on your furnace. The CDC recommends that you inspect your furnace once a year to prevent issues. This isn’t only for efficiency but, rather, for safety.
When you have your furnace maintained, you get:
- Superior Efficiency
- Lower Utility Bills
- Decreased CO Risk
- Peace of Mind
So call Raynor about a furnace maintenance service call today!
