When we come across a carbon monoxide reading on your gas heater, we investigate to find out why it’s happening.

Here’s one of the causes of carbon monoxide leakage in gas central heating units – a crack in the heat exchanger.  As the metal heats and expands on the heat exchanger, carbon monoxide leaks through the cracks and is forced into the house by the room air fan.

Regular gas heater servicing and safety checks will help to keep your unit in good condition.  Always remember to ask for a carbon monoxide test and make sure you use a licensed gas plumber.
