As the winter weather creeps in on us, more people are turning their furnaces on after months of hibernation to heat up their homes as they put up holiday decorations and prepare for the cold months ahead. Though hundreds of fires happen during the holidays due to faulty lighting and various other things, most people prepare themselves with smoke detectors in their homes or fire extinguishers. However, did you know that an even deadlier creature may lurk among us, possibly even from your furnace? Brown’s Heating and Cooling in Tuscarawas, Ohio wants you to be safe this winter by knowing the importance of a carbon monoxide detector/alarm. Carbon monoxide is no joke, and being prepared is the best way to stay safe this holiday season. No matter how new your home or furnace is, preventative steps should always be taken. For those in the Northeast Ohio area, Brown’s Heating and Cooling can perform carbon monoxide leak testing for your furnace to ensure that no carbon monoxide leaks are occurring. With this in mind, there is no better time than now to ask Brown’s Heating and Cooling for a new furnace installation.
