Commercial services can help prevent carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be very deadly and cause tremendous harm to your business.

If you have a business location that has an HVAC system (the chances are pretty good that you do), you may need the help of commercial services. These services can offer advice and maintenance work to make sure your heating and cooling unit is operating efficiently. Commercial services can make sure the HVAC system operates safely as well.

The following is a list of three things you can do to reduce the chances of carbon monoxide poisoning:

Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors

This is one of the most important things you can do to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. You should install these in each room or area where there might be employees or customers. To help streamline these necessary protection tasks, you can use integrated smoke and carbon monoxide detectors that will not only detect carbon monoxide but smoke as well.

Inspect Your Furnace Regularly

The heater that burns fuel, such as oil, propane or natural gas, is probably the biggest potential contributor for carbon monoxide. This is because burning these fuels always produces some carbon monoxide. With a properly installed furnace, carbon monoxide will flow outside. But if something goes wrong with this ventilation system, a regular inspection can discover the problem sooner rather than later.

Have Proper Ventilation

If there is a carbon monoxide leak, effective ventilation can help reduce the potential harm. It may not be possible to have open windows and circulation of outside air to the inside during the winter season all the time, but having this ability should the need arise (such as when a carbon monoxide detector goes off) can help reduce any injuries from carbon monoxide.

You can't ignore problems with carbon monoxide. At the first sign of carbon monoxide trouble at your business, contact Climate Control and use its commercial services to figure out what's going wrong. Your quick action can potentially save lives -- including yours! Contact us today!
