At Western Heating & Air we know that nothing is more important than the health and safety of your family. As winter time arrives and families spend more time indoors with their heaters turned up, the risk for carbon monoxide poisoning increases.

Whether your furnace simply needs a tune up or furnace repair service, we can be there to help keep you and your family safe and warm all season long.
The Dangers of Carbon Monoxide
Each year in the United States, carbon monoxide poisoning results in 450 deaths and over 20,000 visits to the emergency room. This is particularly tragic as most of these deaths and illnesses could have been prevented. One of the reasons carbon monoxide is so dangerous is because it is completely odorless and colorless and can cause death long before you are even aware that it is in your home. Any type of fuel burning appliance or device can give off carbon monoxide, including furnaces. To avoid carbon monoxide poisoning, every home should have a CO detector on every level of the home, and homeowners should call for furnace repair at least annually to diagnose or prevent problems.

The last thing you want to have to do in the dead of winter is go a few days – even a few hours – without heat. Losing your heating source due to a lack of maintenance or major issue can mean a very uncomfortable living space. Fortunately, a good furnace repair company can help you quickly identify and correct any issues. Our specialists at Western Heating & Air can help you avoid going cold this winter.
Signs Your System Isn’t Working
A good way to prevent a major problem is to be able to spot the signs that your heating system is malfunctioning. The most obvious indicator is that your home is not getting warmer despite the many trips you make to the thermostat. There are other symptoms that something may be amiss and may indicate you need furnace repair:
- High gas and electric bills may indicate your furnace is not running efficiently
- A yellow or flickering burner flame, streaks of soot around the furnace or excess moisture on your windows can be signs that poisonous carbon monoxide is being emitted into your home through your furnace
- Strange noises can be a sign that your system is nearing the end of its life
- An especially dry or dusty home can be a sign that your furnace is not able to put out the moisture needed in your home
A good Orem, UT heating company can help you navigate these issues and identify what kind of work needs to be done. Skilled technicians can suggest proper maintenance tips to prevent future furnace repair. Contact our specialists at Western Heating & Air at [phone] for a free quote today.
