First, we want to start by saying that if you have a gas furnace warming your home each winter, it is not inherently hazardous in any way. What can make it a danger, however, is not keeping up with system maintenance once a year, and/or not following up on furnace repair needs that your system may have.
Over 64 million homes in the U.S. use natural gas for winter heat. If they did pose a basic health threat to a home, this number would not be as high. The fact of the matter is, current standards for the manufacturing of natural gas furnaces places a special emphasis on maintaining safety in operation. So, what’s up with the title of this blog post?
