If you see any of the following danger signs in your appliances or venting, call a qualified contractor immediately:
Gas appliances not vented outdoors
Odor coming from appliance
Blocked, broken, rusted, disconnected, corroded or unsealed appliance vent piping
Soot near burners or appliance venting
Gas burners in a garage installed less than 18 inches above the floor
Appliances damaged by flooding
Remember never to store flammables such as paint thinners or gasoline near appliances. Their dangerous vapors are easily ignited. Never store things on top of gas appliances or hang things on gas piping.
Extremely hot water can be dangerous. To prevent burns be sure your water heater is set at a temperature recommended by the manufacturer. Hot water tolerable to an adult can scald a child’s tender skin.
