Hot water Tanks and Furnaces- Venting NF

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys, just a little tip, clear the snow from around the inlet and outlet vents of your furnace and hot water tanks outside. If they become blocked by the snow they can cause carbon monoxide poisoning, they all have safeties in place, but stay on the side of caution and keep them clear as well as your meter!

 

Take care guys

Denis

Thanks for the reminder! Of course, I should know this, but totally forgot about the meter. It sits really low and the regulator vent could get blocked.

Just a reminder with the snow coming in the ottawa area again to keep those vents and meters clear! Apparently there were a few visits (20 something) to the local hospitals and many calls to the local fire department.
