At Healthy Home™ Energy and Consulting, your home's health and safety is our concern! Combustion safety testing is especially important when you're planning on improving your home's performance through air sealing work. We can look after your furnace safety with a team from our Bedford Hills or Somers offices. Simply put, this testing will allow us to give your combustion appliances a checkup to measure their performance and identify any potential health and safety concerns.
When they work properly, combustion appliances have a vent (chimney or flue) that completely exhausts dangerous combustion gases to the outside. When they don't, you risk being exposed to carbon monoxide (CO), a tasteless, odorless and colorless gas that can silently and quickly make your household very sick.
If your appliances are sealed combustion units, there shouldn't be any problems, as there's no chance of backdrafting because of the way they are designed.
