Furnace Maintenance – Home Heating Systems

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Did you know that those home heating systems that aren’t appropriately maintained may be less than fifty percent proficient? As the weather starts to cool down here in Arizona, the last thing you need to worry about is any kind of furnace failure! In order to stay clear of any furnace problems, it is highly recommended that you adhere to regular furnace maintenance.

Avoiding furnace maintenance can lead to expensive or even fatal consequences. Gas furnaces work by burning natural gas or propane. This involves a flame and ignitable material, therefore emphasizing the importance of regular furnace maintenance. Almost every gas furnace produces a little amount of carbon monoxide. Furnaces that haven’t been properly maintained increase the potential to produce a greater amount of carbon monoxide which could be deadly.

Regular furnace maintenance is key for a long-lasting well functioning furnace. Ensure your home is being heated safely and efficiently while lowering your energy bills.

How To Conduct An Energy Audit On Your Home: Doors and Windows

Friday, November 9th, 2012

A-Peoria Plumbing Heating & Cooling thermostatWhy won’t my home heat up to the temperature that I set it on the thermostat?  Why does it feel so cold in here when I have the heat running? A lot of people have asked this question at one point or another.  Before you go running to buy a new heater, the issue may be that your home isn’t energy efficient.  Here are a couple of tips on how to audit your home for it’s energy efficiency. If you are having problems with your windows you can get home glass repair.

Door and Window Auditing

Doors and windows can be a huge source of heat loss in a home; heat can leak out between the edges of the doors and glass. So, next time you call Liberty Locksmith of Calgary to fix your door locks, do not forget that your next step is to ensure energy efficiency for door.  Entrust it to the reliable locksmith Sacramento. If you are loosing heat due to your windows check out https://windowrepairphoenix.com/custom-frameless-glass-shower-enclosures, they can help fix or install new windows for you.  Find out bay window benefits! Most homes in the USA don’t have proper filler around these areas to keep them energy efficient.  This process is called weather stripping and heat loss could be caused by this. To make your home energy efficient you will need to fill in these holes on the bottom, top and sides so that when your windows and doors are closed they fit snuggly up against the jambs.  If you are having trouble finding any leaks but you think that this is the problem you can light incense and run it along the jambs.  The smoke will help reveal any cracks or gaps you can’t see. When auditing your windows make sure to note what type of window pane it is (single or double) and which direction that they point.  You must also be aware of the fact that shutters go a long way in maintaining natural light in the rooms. So, if you are looking for answers to questions like “can shutters be fitted to any window?“, the link provided here shall be your saving grace. This will help you later on figuring out an energy savings plan that works for your home. Make also sure that the lock are in good working order. I’d recommend to check out Union Locksmith Las Vegas.

Turning Your Home Heating System on for the First Time This Season

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

We just had a cold front and it might not be our last before spring. If you haven’t turned on your home heating system in something like eight or nine months, which most of us haven’t, you may find its time to have a repairman come out for a quick servicing before your entire family arrives for the holidays. Here are a couple of things to keep in mind when turning on your heater for the first time of the season:

A little odor is normal. Your heater is simply just burning off leftover dust that has been accumulating in the past months. You can prevent this by wiping down the furnace before turning it on. However, if the odor persists, check to make sure all the vents in your home are open. If several of the rooms are closed off, this can cause heat to build up in your furnace. Also, try changing the filter, as it may be clogged or dirty. If the smell continues, it may be time to call a repairman.

If the heater is on and the thermostat is set to the desirable temperature, and your home just doesn’t seem to be warming up, turn your unit off. A running heater can emit poisonous carbon monoxide gases into your home that can make you and your family sick. Also, allowing your heater to run means a higher utility bill for you and lower energy efficiency. In this situation, it’s best to call a trusted repair service.

If you are having trouble with your home heating system, give the folks at A-Peoria Plumbing a call. They offer 24 Hour Emergency Service, and will respond immediately to ensure you and your family are safe and comfortable.

SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY, FROM A-PEORIA PLUMBING!

FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (AP) – Twenty-eight people, including many children, got carbon monoxide poisoning Saturday because of a gas leak at a Flagstaff church lodge.

Flagstaff fire Battalion Chief Bob Orrill says firefighters were called to the lodge at about 8:30 a.m. and found that 28 people were experiencing symptoms including nausea, dizziness, headaches and stomach aches.

He says many of them were younger than 16.

Flagstaff Medical Center spokeswoman Starla Collins says no one has had to be admitted to the hospital and that it appears everyone will be fine.

Orrill says the problem likely was caused after someone at the lodge cranked up the heater to 90 degrees, causing it to run all night, and that the heater had dirty air filters that were choking the system.

A furnace filter is crucial to the operation of any heating system. It traps most airborne debris while allowing a continual airflow that moves heated air through the house. A variety of furnace filter problems are possible unless the homeowner properly maintains the system.

Almost all types of appliances can cause hazards, but those such as oil furnaces that burn fuel for heating and cooking can be especially dangerous to your health. Most oil furnaces are safe, but sometimes they can produce gases that can be dangerous and even fatal. Oil furnaces can be a source of carbon monoxide gas. Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless and deadly poisonous.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, more than 200 deaths occur annually in the United States because of pollutants from indoor combustion devices. Carbon monoxide is invisible and has no odor. An entire family can be poisoned by CO without being aware of its presence.

Carbon monoxide reduces the ability of blood to carry oxygen. Red blood cells absorb CO faster than they do oxygen, so CO can replace oxygen in the red blood cells, preventing oxygen from reaching body tissues and thus damaging the tissues.

Breathing high doses of carbon monoxide can cause carbon monoxide poisoning. Symptoms include headache, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, a gagging sensation, vomiting, chest pain, loss of consciousness and, finally, death. CO poisoning can affect both people and animals. Infants and people with cardiac, respiratory or blood disorders are most susceptible.
