Natural Gas Furnace Safety Tips

这里有一些安全提示,你可以遵循,以防止火灾由于燃气炉加热:

  • 在供暖季节开始前,你的炉子是否由专业人员检查. Fall is the perfect time to schedule a professional furnace tune-up.
  • Leave furnace repairs to the professionals. When your HVAC technician inspects your furnace, they will check: the flue, vent connections, physical condition of heating components, gas pressure, flame color, burner combustion, dirt and cracks, fuel input, airflow, thermostat, electrical connections, and more.
  • 确保你知道如何关闭煤气在主阀门,靠近你的煤气表:
  • Check for gas leaks in your furnace:
  • If you smell gas, turn off the gas at the main valve, 不要点燃任何东西(包括打开或关闭电灯和电器设备), and leave the area immediately. 用手机或邻居的房子打电话给消防部门或当地的煤气公司.
  • Check the walls and ceiling around your furnace. 如果有煤烟或变色,请专业人士检查您的通风.
  • Inspect your flue pipes and seams. Are they in place? 煤烟可能表明你的炉子脏了,效率低下,或者通风系统有问题.
  • Check the area around your furnace. 许多炉膛火灾是由于炉膛附近的易燃物体和物质引起的. 将纸、垃圾、油漆和其他易燃材料远离炉子.
  • 定期清洁和吸尘炉周围的区域.
  • Maintain a child-free zone around your furnace.
  • 每30天检查你的炉子过滤器,不要超过90天来清洗或更换它. 这也将提高你的气流和炉子的效率.
  • 检查炉子的火焰,确保它是蓝色的. 如果是其他颜色,需要专业人员检查.
