History of Heating
Long ago families huddled around the fireplace to stay warm. But Alice H. Parker, in the early 1900s changed that with the invention and paten of the first American central heating system. Her invention paved the way for the forced air wall furnace that arrived in the 1930s.
Two major benefits came from Alice’s invention. First, fireplaces no longer had to be maintained around the clock. Thanks to her the maintenance of your home heating source is no longer a 24/7 job. Second, her invention significantly lowered the cost of heating making it more affordable for everyone.
Still the use of natural gas heating did not come without problems.
The problem with natural gas heating
For a long time, gas heaters operated without vents. Products of combustion were routinely discharged into living spaces. This led to medical problems, and occasionally death, due to oxygen deprivation.
Improvements throughout the years have solved many of these issues. The newest generation of gas wall furnaces are the safest ever produced!
Unfortunately, while the gas heaters being produced today are the safest we've ever seen, the measures put in place by manufacturers to insure they are operating safely can be overridden by anyone, even a person who is not familiar with the safe and proper operation of these units.
The solution is simple: furnace maintenance
Even the most well-intentioned person can create a deadly situation when trying to help restore heat to a building. Because of this, manufacturers recommend that gas wall furnaces be inspected prior to their use each year.
