Carbon Monoxide the silent Killer!
Every year 20,000 to 30,000 people in the USA get sick from Carbon Monoxide posioning and about 500 people die from from it.
Carbon monoxide is colorless, odorless, and tasteless. It cannot be detected by humans without the help of a detector. You will never beleive how many prople in Canada alone don't by a Carbon Monoxide detector for there home. For the price of a good one it is less than $100 but it will save your life.
Every year is a matter of fact there is headlines in the News Papers about a family that has died from this special killer. Infact last year I was a Sub-Contractor for a company and one of the employee's relatives died from Carbon Monoxide. Being in the industry I have heard this many times but for me personaly this really hit home base, So my friends and family and coworkers this is just for you with all my Heart I am saddend for your loss. For people can not understand the loss of there loved ones for something that is so easy to prevent.
I wish to provide this as with a peace of mind to help all in the world so they never have to feel what you and your family has gone through. First things first there is a reason why you should have your Gas Appliances checked and that is Carbon Monoxide. Many people shrug there shoulders when I say that, because I am in the service industry. Ok I will give you that! Think about it this way if I can prevent 1 person from loss of life it is worth my time. Yes my business makes money from matinenace checks and sure I want your business. But not at the cost of someones life. You can always call another company and that is fine with me as long as you dyo it!
Now I will explain about Carbon Monoxide a little for you. The maximum allowable concentation for short term exposure in a living area according to ASHRAE standards is 9 parts per Million. The closer to 0 is best, a good example is in my on home with my furnace running on high between 1 ppm and 0 ppm. Now I will give you some for the workplace, The max allowable concentration for continuous exposure in any eight hour period industry according to MIOSHA standard is 35ppm. 15 min OSHA slight Headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea after 2-3 hrs 200ppm. 400ppm frontal headaches with-in 1-2 hrs 400ppm. 800ppm dizziness, nausea, and convulsions with-in 45 min Unconsciousness with 2 hrs death with-in 3 hrs. I can go on and on but I am going to give you one more 12800ppm Death with-in 1 to 3 minutes.
So I guess you get the picture. If you feel good out in the fresh air then go in your home and always seem to get headaches it might not just be a sinus problem. Get your furnace and other gas appliances checked out by a qualified proffesional. I personally go in every service call with a Carbon Monoxide detector so I dont Die!

Many people dont ask the right questions and end up using contractors that they shouldn't.
Good example of these questions in the following:
1. How much does it cost to upgrade my furnace, total price?
2. What kind of warranty comes with the new furnace?
3. Are you Bonded?
4. Do you have insurance?
5. Do you pull permits?
6. When can you install the new unit?
There are many other questions that could be asked but these are the basic questions. Take time to choose the company your dealing with as some companies are sure better than others. Some contractors are new and some are old but reviews from other customers is one of the best ways to get a feel for your contractor. A great place to see reviews is Tustedpros.ca this site checks the reviews even contacts the customer to verify.
To answer a couple questions for you we will start with the cost. The average cost to install a new furnace should be between $4000-5000. You might think this is expensive but really its not. There are a lot of different things that can effect the cost of installing a new furnace change, one of the main reasons is warranty. A permfect example of this is lets say a company gives you this great price around $3000. Do you think you have a great warranty? I would probably say NO! Why most reputable companies are going to give you a least 10 years on your new furnace. They would not be making anough money on it that they would wish to return to fix problems trust me on this one I know this for a fact. In fact this company will probably not be in business after about 3 years and other companies are not going to cover someone elses work. I cannot stress this fact enough as I see many people calling are company to fix furnaces that another company installed.
If a company is giving you a warranty how easy is it for you to reach them and how fast will they fix the problem. Warranty issues should be fixed right away I say, its good for business and it lets the customer know you stand by your products. Ask around family, friends and co-workers most people have had and might know who is good to deal with and who is not. Is the company asking you to post reviews for them. ask your friends if they would tell other people about this company. Our company is built on referrals, every year around winter we ask customers to write a review. I might be old fashioned but we even send out christmas cards. Most of our customers treat us friends and we treat them the same way.
