Having a carbon monoxide detector in your
home is a great idea, but it does not eliminate
the need, to have your boiler or furnace
serviced every year. Just as having your boiler
or furnace serviced every year, does not
eliminate the need for a carbon monoxide
Oil fired boiler and furnaces also need to be
serviced and cleaned by a professional every
year, the only difference is an oil fired boiler
will make a real mess when it fails, so you will
know you have a problem.
Other important reasons to have a pro in your
home every year are, the
boiler relief valve needs to be inspected
The chimney needs to be inspected every year.
Boiler controls need to be inspected every year,
to be sure they are functioning properly.
Safety devices need to be checked to be sure
they are functioning properly.
And there are many other things that could be
going on that you may not be aware of, that a
pro will find, some could be life threatening.
I do my best to help you with the correct
answers to your plumbing and heating questions,
I give better advice then others I see on the
internet, who give very dangerous advice, but
getting any advice from people on the internet,
instead of having a local pro come into your
home, and look at your system, is very foolish,
If you still want my help.
