The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide

Most boilers and furnaces keep you warm by burning fuel in a sealed combustion chamber. In addition to soot and water vapor, by-products generated during the process include deadly carbon monoxide. Without regular heating maintenance, parts can corrode and allow the dangerous gas to leak into your home or business. Odorless and colorless, carbon monoxide can cause illness and even death before anyone is aware of its presence.

Better Performance and Efficiency

A reliable heating system ensures your home or business stays warm enough to keep everyone safe, healthy and comfortable. However, regular maintenance also helps your system to perform up to its full potential. You’ll even spend less every month on utilities since your system won’t have to waste energy by working harder.
