It is critical that your appliance is checked and recorded by a licensed gas fitter for combustion product spillage every 2 years, (or earlier if recommended by manufacturer) after servicing or repairs, or after alterations to the building that may negatively impact the building’s ventilation, including the installation of exhaust fans. Gas and carbon monoxide leak will also be conducted as part of precautionary measurement.
Carbon monoxide poisoning typically occurs from breathing in too much carbon monoxide (CO). Symptoms are often described as “flu-like” and commonly include headache, dizziness, weakness, vomiting, chest pain, and confusion. Large exposures can result in loss of consciousness, arrhythmias, seizures, or death.
A gas leak, malfunction, or other issue with one’s installations can happen. When it does, one should not wait to get the problem fixed. Many of these problems, especially a leak, will make it dangerous to be in the home at all. There are several signs that one needs gas heater repairs immediately.
