Natural Gas Safety
While modern gas appliances make our lives easier and more convenient, they can pose significant risks if proper maintenance and use is not provided.
Natural Gas Stove
Never use your natural gas stove for heating. Doing so can cause dangerous levels of carbon monoxide (CO) to build up in your home, and may cause permanent damage to the appliance. Keep in mind, the gas stove doesn’t have a ventilation flue. For this reason, always use the vent hood fan when cooking.
The flame of a natural gas appliance should always burn blue. If the flame is not blue, it may be an indication that the appliance needs adjusting or cleaning by a qualified service technician.
Gas Water heater
Set the water heater temperature to 120°F to prevent accidental scalding. Below this temperature can allow bacteria to grow in the tank, above it poses a potential scalding danger, especially to children and the elderly. The ventilation flue should be routinely inspected to insure it is not blocked by leaves or other debris, resulting in deadly carbon monoxide filling your home.
Never use a gas grill inside a garage, in an enclosed porch, directly under low eaves or overhangs, and certainly not indoors. Ensure the grill is a safe distance from wood or vinyl siding, deck railings and other surfaces that could ignite.
Routinely inspect the clothes dryer’s exhaust duct, vent and hood cover on the exterior of the home remove any lint or obstruction.
Have a qualified HVAC technician check the heating system annually. Technicians check for proper combustion, carbon monoxide levels, burner condition and other components to ensure proper and efficient operation.
Carbon Monoxide Detectors
All homes utilizing gas should have a carbon monoxide detector on each floor, and located in sleeping areas.
