Furnace safety

To ensure that your furnace is working properly:

  • Have your furnace and venting system checked every year to prevent carbon monoxide hazards, and to keep it working at its best.
  • Keep clutter out of the furnace room to ensure proper air circulation.
  • Keep combustible materials like paper, chemicals, paint and cleaning products away from the furnace.
  • Never use gasoline or other flammable vapours or liquids near your natural gas furnace or water heater.

Maintaining your furnace will help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
