CARBON MONOXIDE TESTING

Get ClearView to Perform Carbon Monoxide Testing in Your Calgary Home During Your Next Service So You Don’t Have to Worry

SERVICE INFORMATION

Do you worry about keeping your family safe from carbon monoxide? Well, we worry about that too! That is why we provide inexpensive furnace and boiler tune-up and testing services in Calgary. Our testing will detect small cracks and blockages before they become big safety concerns.

Home Carbon Monoxide Detectors Are Not Enough

The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Association reports, “The standards as of 2010 prohibit showing CO levels of less than 30 ppm on digital displays. The most recent standards also require the alarm to sound at higher levels of CO than with previous editions of the standard. The reasoning behind these changes is to reduce calls to fire stations, utilities and emergency response teams when the levels of CO are not life-threatening. This change will also reduce the number of calls to these agencies due to detector inaccuracy or the presence of other gases.

Consequently, new alarms will not sound at CO concentrations up to 70 ppm.

Note that these concentrations are significantly in excess of the Canadian health guidelines!

Carbon Monoxide FAQs

What are signs of CO poisoning? 2018-05-17T17:19:27+00:00

Signs and symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning may include:

  • Dull headache
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of consciousness

Carbon monoxide poisoning can be particularly dangerous for people who are sleeping or intoxicated. People may have irreversible brain damage or even die before anyone realizes there’s a problem.

What can cause a carbon monoxide leak in a house? 2018-05-17T17:19:35+00:00

Incorrectly installed, poorly maintained or poorly ventilated household appliances – such as cookers, heaters and central heating furnaces & boilers – are the most common causes of accidental exposure to carbon monoxide.

How is carbon monoxide harmful to the body? 2018-05-17T17:19:47+00:00

Carbon monoxide is harmful when breathed because it displaces oxygen in the blood and deprives the heart, brain, and other vital organs of oxygen. Large amounts of CO can overcome you in minutes without warning—causing you to lose consciousness and suffocate. CO poisoning can be reversed if caught in time.

Carbon Monoxide Testing Can Save Lives

ClearView offers comprehensive furnace and boiler tune-up services that include carbon monoxide testing to detect cracks and blockages that could lead to leaks.

During the CO testing portion of our tune-up, we will check all connections to and from the furnace, check vents for cracks, gaps or corrosion and recommend any necessary repairs. We will also check for debris that may be impeding air flow.

In addition, our carbon monoxide testing includes an inspection of the heat exchanger and combustion chamber for cracks, holes and signs of rusting or corrosion. We also clear dirt and debris from filters and the burner.

Our Preventative Service Agreement ensures that your furnace or boiler undergoes carbon monoxide testing every year. Contact our Calgary office to learn more about the many advantages of a ClearView service agreement.
