If there’s an issue with your boiler the supply of natural gas must be shut off immediately and professional assistance is required before it can be turned back on. Below are the two most common reasons that homeowners encounter this stressful emergency situation:
Lack of maintenance – Repairing your boiler should be a top priority because, like any mechanical system, it will begin to wear out and show signs of wear and tear over time. If your unit isn’t being properly repaired then cracks may form, allowing dangerous gas to leak into your home.
Clogged, dirty vents – If the vents that help filter carbon monoxide out of your home become clogged, then the gas will become trapped inside your home, leading to hazardous situations.
