Oldest Furnace Contest
IS YOUR FURNACE OLD AND POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS?
Carbon Valley Heating & Air Seeks the Oldest Furnace in Firestone, Frederick, Dacono, Erie, and Surrounding Areas every year.*
As the temperature starts to drop, we want to make sure you, our local community, are aware of the potentially harmful situations in your home if you have an old furnace.
Old, faulty parts cause many accidents involving gas furnaces. And older furnaces often don’t comply with current standard safety codes and are at an even higher risk.
Possible consequences of an old or unmaintained furnace include:
Poor Indoor Air Quality
Potential health risks are posed by exposure to dust and other particles that may be released into the air when the furnace is operating. These particles can cause respiratory problems, such as asthma, and can also aggravate other existing health conditions.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
One of the most serious hazards of an old furnace is the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can be deadly if inhaled in large quantities. If your furnace is not properly vented, it can release carbon monoxide into your home, putting you and your family at risk.
Another hazard of an old furnace is the increased risk of fire. Furnaces can overheat and catch fire, especially if they are not properly maintained. If you have an old furnace, it is important to have it inspected regularly by a qualified technician to ensure that it is safe.
Any furnace more than ten years old is a ripe candidate for replacement. The average life expectancy of a gas furnace is 12 years, depending on the brand and maintenance performed over the unit's life. As mechanical equipment ages, its performance degrades and becomes less efficient.
We want to see you and your family safe, healthy, and warm all season long.
