Furnace Repair Can Reduce Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Risk
At Western Heating & Air we know that nothing is more important than the health and safety of your family.

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 Beacon).
