Carbon Monoxide is the #1 cause of poisonings in the U.S.
The safe and efficient operation of your heating equipment and other combustion appliances cannot be determined without testing using a calibrated combustion analyzer.
Because the technology, instruments and training to do this testing correctly has only been available for a few years, odds are it’s never been done.
Don’t Go Another Day Without a Thorough Home CO Test
Even in small quantities carbon monoxide can cause serious health problems, particularly in children and the elderly. Millions of unsuspecting homeowners are exposed to low levels of CO and don’t even know it.
Unfortunately U.L. Listed CO alarms don’t go off until your family has been exposed to 70 ppm (parts per million) for over 3-1/2 hours! The World Health Organization’s guidelines are between 15-35 ppm. Carbon monoxide can come from additional sources in your home besides your heating equipment, and the should be checked. Sources include your Water Heater, Gas Range, Gas Logs, Space Heater, Boiler – even an attached garage.
Our technicians can measure the safety and efficiency of all your combustion equipment, even appliances that we normally don’t sell or service. Our testing can also verify that your equipment is operating at peak efficiency.
Better Contractors Don’t Guess -They Measure
If CO testing is part of your contractor’s normal protocols he will advise you of this prior to servicing or installing equipment. Odds are when the tech walks into your house he’ll be carrying some type of CO Monitor to immediately check if unsafe levels are present.
Our CO Technicians are CERTIFIED by the National Comfort Institute to test all types of combustible equipment.
When we work on your equipment, we will begin by drilling a hole in the flue of your combustible appliance, and insert the probe of an electronic combustion analyzer to check actual burner performance.
Additional performance testing might require holes to be drilled into the ductwork. These holes are plugged, if needed, once the testing is taken as well. Once we’re finished testing we will provide documentation of your appliances carbon monoxide output and review the results with you. This is useful in comparing future readings to see if any deterioration occurs.
We Check for Carbon Monoxide on ALL New Equipment
Anytime equipment is installed, it’s being exposed to conditions in which it has never been tested to perform. Venting systems, combustion air, duct systems, additional appliances in the building, building pressure etc., can all affect its operation.
Besides that, after leaving the factory it’s likely your equipment has been loaded and unloaded on trucks and transported several times. Vibration and shock can cause components to shift and move.
The only way to truly know if your new equipment is operating safely and efficiently is to test it once it’s been installed.
Our technicians check all equipment once it has been installed to make sure it does not pose a carbon monoxide risk. Your safety is our premier goal.
In addition to checking new installations we can offer a service of checking all other combustible appliances in your home.
