Aire Serv Protects Homeowners from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning

Leading provider of HVAC system repair and maintenance shares warning signs and prevention tips

WACO, Texas — With most of the country experiencing record-low temperatures due in part to the polar vortex, homeowners are increasingly relying on their furnaces to keep them warm. This may seem harmless, as most are worried about getting frostbite from the powerful wind chill, but heaters can be just as lethal, releasing carbon monoxide (CO) if there is a leak. This poisoning effect can also apply to clothes dryers, water heaters, portable heaters and fireplaces, so Aire Serv is sharing tips to make sure homeowners know how to spot the signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning and how to prevent it.

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 50,000 residents in the U.S. visit the emergency room for potential carbon monoxide poisoning each year. This gas is referred to as the silent-killer because it’s odorless, colorless and nearly undetectable without a carbon monoxide detector. If exposed to low levels of carbon monoxide, homeowners will start to feel dizzy or display “flu-like” symptoms such as vomiting or chest pain. However, high levels of this gas can result in death, so it’s essential to recognize the symptoms early on.

“Aire Serv has made it its mission to raise awareness around the dangers of carbon monoxide, considering that more than 400 people lose their lives every year to a gas they may not know is present in their home, according to the CDC,” said Steve Truett, president of Aire Serv, a Neighborly Company. “Carbon monoxide can seep under doorways and through cracks, so to ensure the safety of your entire household, it is imperative to keep up with preventative measures. Homeowners’ well-being is a top priority for Aire Serv, so we encourage maintenance checks to safeguard your home from this lethal gas.”

To prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, Aire Serv recommends installing a detector on the floor of each room, as well as one outside all sleeping areas. They also recommend testing detectors and changing their batteries twice a year to keep them functioning properly. Other steps to reduce carbon monoxide exposure include:

  • Properly venting large household appliances that rely on fuel for operation.
  • Backing cars out of the garage before warming them up. Pay special attention to keyless cars, as many motorists have exited vehicles without turning off the engines, which has allowed carbon monoxide to fill up the garage and enter the home.
  • Schedule routine professional inspection and maintenance of items like furnaces, water heaters and fireplaces.

Aire Serv offers premium residential and commercial services for every type of heating and cooling system. Home services, which include heating and air conditioner repair, replacement and maintenance, are charged by the job and not by the hour. In addition, Aire Serv conveniently offers 24-hour emergency heating and air conditioning repair and service to its residential and commercial customers.
