Carbon Monoxide Testing / Heating Safety Inspections* in Rhode Island
Rhode Island winters can be brutal, but if you’re like most people, you probably don’t give much thought to your home’s heating system until there’s a problem. The fact is, many of the most common heating problems start out as minor ones, but they can develop into serious safety threats if not detected early.
Scheduling an annual safety inspection* is a convenient and affordable way to ensure your heating system is operating safely, and at peak efficiency.
Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless and tasteless poison gas that can be fatal when inhaled. Carbon monoxide build up in a home can become a problem when:
- Portable fuel-burning heating units or generators are used indoors without proper ventilation.
- Chimneys and flues become damaged or blocked.
- Homes are too tightly sealed and insulated causing carbon monoxide to be trapped in living areas.
Your Heating Safety Inspection with Carbon Monoxide Testing
Why Schedule a Heating Safety Inspection?
In addition to helping you avoid costly emergency heating repairs, our safety inspections also help protect your family from fires and carbon monoxide poisoning.
According to the National Fire Protection Association, “Heating equipment is the leading cause of home fire deaths”, and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimates that “Over 200 people across the nation are known to die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by problems in the venting – out of their homes – of toxic gases produced by their heating systems.” Both of these agencies recommend a yearly heating tune up and safety inspection as an effective way to prevent these risks.
Yearly inspections also help reduce your monthly utility bills, and prolong the life of your home’s heating system. In fact, many manufacturers require annual tune ups as part of their warranty agreements.
