Reasons a Homeowner Should Check the Heating Unit Gas Pressure
We all love our home to be warm. There is nothing nicer than stepping through the door into a comfortable home. Today’s heating systems can be so quiet and efficient we often take them for granted until something goes wrong. The importance of having your gas heating system regularly and professionally inspected and maintained is bigger than you may realize. Here are three important reasons to have the gas pressure levels checked in your system.
A low pressure reading is typically an indicator of a gas leak somewhere in the system. Any time there is an accumulation of gas fumes, there is the opportunity for a fire. Because it is lighter than air, it tends to accumulate in attic and other dead air spaces. It is the gases flammability which makes it so effective as a fuel for warming your home, which in turn makes it dangerous company loose in your home.
Most people do not spend time around the house wishing there was a way they could spend more money on their basic needs. We all want to find ways to save a little here and a little there. By checking pressure levels regularly, you can ensure there are no leaks allowing the gas you are paying good money for to be set free.
Adverse Health Effects
There is a reason the gas company makes an otherwise odorless gas smell like rotten eggs. It was not meant to find a home in our lungs. At moderate levels gas exposure can cause dizziness, fatigue, headaches, irregular breathing and nausea. As higher levels loss of consciousness and death can occur.
Three very compelling reasons to make an investment into the regular professional inspection and maintenance of your home heating system. An inspection is recommended annually as a best practice. If it has been more than a year since your last inspection, or if you have never had it done, take time this week to have a licensed technician begin regular visits.
