A recent facebook post by one of Tuscany's residents in our community group reminded me this morning to take a walk to the side of my house.

 

 

Most of the newer homes in the area (and many other areas of Calgary) have high efficiency furnaces that vent to the side of the house. With the amount of snow that we are experiencing and the help of wind, shovelled snow and other obstacles, snow and ice can accumulate and block your exhuast pipes.

 

Please take the time to check your exhaust pipes to ensure they remain clear of snow.


If they are blocked your furnace may not run property and worse, you may have carbon monoxide enter your home rather than be vented out.

 

Installing carbon monoxide detectors in your home (house, townhouse, apartment) can save your life. They are readily available at your local hardware store with installing for some being just plugging it into an outlet.
