When the cold weather hits, we all want to fire up our heating systems to make sure that we’re all warm and toasty in our homes. However, if you haven’t gotten your heating system serviced this year, you might crank up your thermostat and discover that your furnace doesn’t seem to be working properly. Maybe it’s making a weird noise, blowing irregularly, or shutting off intermittently with no explanation. You might be tempted to ignore the problem, but beware: doing so could put your entire household at risk.
A malfunctioning furnace could be a major fire hazard, with obstructions in the system ready to light up and burn your whole house down. Heating system fires are responsible for hundreds of deaths every year, and a malfunctioning furnace could be a devastating fire waiting to happen if you don’t contact a furnace repair expert to get it taken care of.
Improperly burned home heating fuel can cause a buildup of carbon monoxide in your home. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can be extremely dangerous even in small amounts. The symptoms of carbon monoxide can be incredibly difficult to diagnose, and prolonged exposure can cause long-term mental damage, serious health damage, and even death.
A dirty heating system can be blowing all kinds of allergens and pollutants into your home, causing your air quality to deteriorate rapidly and exposing you and your family to high concentrations of dangerous chemicals. This can cause serious damage to your family’s respiratory systems, especially in young children.
