My neighbor Debbie hardly ever takes care of anything on time, she’s just a perpetually late personâ€¦ This can get entirely frustrating when you’re counting on her to provide you a ride or to leave on time for a concert! But I recognize it’s even worse for her personally because she is a homeowner. She has trouble taking care of her lawn maintenance and anything else that has to do with proper upkeep of her house! For instance, Debbie has neglected her annual oil furnace tune-up in the fall ever since I’ve known her, however it turns out that after years of dust, dirt, and debris building up in her oil furnace system, cracks started showing up in the oil furnace’s combustion chamber, however unbeknownst to Debbie, the cracks were releasing deadly carbon monoxide gases into her house! Thank goodness that the weather wasn’t too awfully cold, debbie hadn’t had her control unit turned up truly high because the temperature outside hadn’t been that cold. If she had have been running her oil furnace all the time, she really could have ended up dying from carbon monoxide poisoning! As it happened, she just ended up with blurred vision and some disappointing headaches. Thank goodness someone mentioned it to her and she called the Heating and Air Conditioning contractor to come out and repair her oil furnace before it was too late! It just goes to show you that you never neglect your fall oil furnace maintenanceâ€¦ Plus, it’s a entirely good plan to install a carbon monoxide detector close to your oil furnace, but otherwise, you might end up sick prefer Debbie was, or even worse!
