Don’t ignore the little things that can compromise your safety. A rusty flue on a heater vent may not be considered important but it could mean the system is not functioning efficiently and safely.
Similarly, a heater that is hard to light, or burns with a weak flame colour are other symptoms of a potential problem.
Another issue is broken seals and cracked ducting in ducted gas heating systems. All this is all hidden away in the roof space. The first householders usually find out about this is when their next gas bill arrives and it’s a shocker.
Then there is the issue of personal safety. Drowsiness or mild nausea after the heating has been running for a while could indicate the early stages of carbon monoxide poisoning.
Government authorities urge homeowners to ensure all gas appliances are properly serviced and checked for correct installation.
So the moral is don’t ignore any issue. Get it fixed and certified by fully qualified technicians.
SA Health also warns about the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning from a leaking gas heater.
So make sure you have a quality carbon monoxide alarm installed and working.
