When your system is properly running, heating and cooling safety issues are frequently overlooked. Would you and your loved ones know how to deal with it if something went wrong? What safety steps should you have available for safeguarding your loved ones when it pertains to your heating and AC system? All In One Services’ heating and cooling repair professionals go over safety tips in this blog.
Simple Methods of Staying Safe
Below we cover some important things you should keep in mind about HVAC safety:
- Clean the air filter – Clogged air filters in the furnace might result in carbon monoxide fumes seeping into your house. Check filters often, replacing or cleaning them at least every 3 months.
- Maintain and install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors – Odorless, colorless carbon monoxide gas is possibly deadly when inhaled, and electrical fires may result from any household appliance, which includes heating and air systems. Install smoke and carbon monoxide detectors all throughout your house. Be sure to check batteries on a monthly basis, change them at least one time a year, and test all new batteries for performance.
- Designate family-friendly spaces – Block pets and children from accessing rooms containing boilers and furnaces to prevent possible harmful burns from pressure release valves and pilot lights.
- Arrange annual professional maintenance – Having the heating and cooling system maintained professionally is critical in preventing safety problems. Expert technicians will check the system for safety problems that might result from a faulty system and make sure your air or heating will be available for you when you need it the most.
Typical Safety Issues
Some of the dangers related to heating and cooling systems—that you should know—include:
- Loose connections from the contraction and expansion of heat pump units which potentially could trigger electrical fires
- Faulty pilot lights, as well as heat exchanger leaks on the furnace, causing carbon monoxide poisoning
- Faulty, poorly located, or blocked boiler pressure release valves
