Furnace vents

With all the snow piling up and swirling about, you must be vigilant about keeping the furnace exhaust and intake vents clear. Unfortunately if enough snow piles up and covers the venting system the furnace may not operate. Most furnace vents exit the house thru the box sill or the wooden portion of the home just above the foundation. During normal operation you have probably seen steam coming from this vent. There may also be an intake near this vent. Some types of venting, called an concentric, us a combination exhaust and intake.
 These need to be kept clear of snow. You may also have a water heater that exhausts the same way as the furnace. This too must be kept clear.
 If you do find your furnace non operational, please make sure the vent is clear of snow. If you do find the vent covered with snow, clear this away. Then turn the thermostat to off and then back to heat. This should reset the furnace and it should attempt to start again

Carbon Monoxide Detectors

 We should all have carbon monoxide detectors in our homes. The most important issue we see when we visit homes is the incorrect placement of of the devices. We see them all the time in the furnace area. They need to be placed NEAR SLEEPING AREAS. The purpose is to awaken you if the carbon monixide level in your home rises to unsafe levels. Most fatalities happen when people are sleeping. If you have sleeping areas on multiple floors, you should have a detector on each level where there are bedrooms.
 If you do not have a carbon monoxide detector we recommend you purchase on right away.

Fall is almost upon us

Yes its true, fall will be coming again to Western Michigan. The schools reopen, days become shorter, mornings have a crisp feel. Time seems to speed up as we all do what we can before winter sets in. There seems to be an urgency in the air. So don't forget to have your furnace serviced. We have a full time service department that can help you get ready for winter.
