Dangers of Waiting to Call for Furnace Repair
When it’s cold outside there’s nothing quite like coming into a home that is warm and comfortable on the inside. Even if a winter storm rages, you can relax knowing that you are protected from the elements as long as your furnace is working properly. When your furnace stops working, however, your home may no longer be the safe haven you need it to be. At Western Heating & Air we know how important prompt furnace repair is for avoiding serious dangers that can put you, your home, and your family at risk.
People that avoid calling for furnace repair after their heaters stop working frequently are forced to turn to alternative heat sources. Candles, generators, and stove tops can all be fire hazards if used to heat a home and are not handled properly.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
Portable generators and other heating sources can also carry the threat of causing carbon monoxide poisoning. In addition, furnaces that have not undergone Orem, UT heater repair and are improperly ventilated can cause dangerous levels of carbon monoxide to accumulate in a home.
Homes that are left without heating during the cold winter months for too long also run the risk of the plumbing freezing. Furthermore, pipes that freeze can break causing even more extensive problems due to water damage.
Avoid these three serious dangers by contacting us for furnace repair at the first signs of trouble. At Western Heating & Air we are available 24 hours a day so that you never have to wait to call for the service you need.
