Gas burners use a clip to hold them in place. Open the clip and carefully remove the burners from inside the furnace. Put a soft-bristled brush onto the wand of a vacuum cleaner. Run the brush over the surface of the burners to break off hardened pieces of dust and rust while you are vacuuming.

We recommend that you have your heating system cleaned every two (2) years. However, there might be specific factors in your home that may make more frequent cleaning necessary. Some of the most common ones are furry pets, new area construction, renovations, smoking in the home, or allergies or respiratory problems.

Are gas heaters bad for your health?

Gas heaters emit carbon monoxide directly into the room and increase the level of indoor pollutants which can potentially harm human health including high incidents of respiratory symptoms. Heater burning consumes oxygen while gas leakage results in suffocation if the romms are not properly ventilated.

Can gas heaters make you sick?

You can’t see it or smell it. But while your gas heater is running, carbon monoxide could be spilling into your home. All gas heaters can spill carbon monoxide (CO) – a gas that you can’t see or smell but can make you seriously sick or kill you.
