Below are five great reasons to have your gas heater serviced

Keeping you and your family safe is the most important reason to have your as heater serviced. Carbon monoxide is a deadly, odorless gas, that poses a threat to everyone in your home if your heater is not checked and service regularly.

Why? A clean, well-maintained fuel-burning appliance produces a minuscule amount of carbon monoxide, which is typically carried away by the venting system. However, if your heater is dirty or malfunctioning it can produce higher concentrations of carbon monoxide, that don’t get carried away, and that significantly increases the risk to your family.
