There are many things that can go wrong in a house and people don’t realize that there are a lot of preventive maintenance that can be done so houses will not catch on fire.
- Preventing fires easily consists of unplugging electronics when you’re not using them, making sure that candles are in sight and blowing them out when you are not in the room.
Just last week my neighbor had a house fire and it wasn’t from your typical electrical fire or a candle. The house fire was caused by his HVAC system! What happened to my friend’s home was that the connection between the heating and cooling unit and where they gas (which fuels the heating system) moves into the system and the connection was faulty. This was due to poor workmanship and neglect. The pressure within the system do was caused by the gas leak. For some reason the owner did not notice any issues with the quality of the indoor air. This is a serious matter and had to be looked into by the fire chief and a local heating and cooling company that installed the heating and cooling unit for my neighbor. I’m really hoping that this was not caused by the lack of workmanship by the heating and cooling technician and it was hopefully from faulty heating and cooling equipment. If this is the case then my neighbor could potentially get compensation from the equipment manufacturer and not by the heating and cooling company. I think this would cause seriously financial harm to the local heating and cooling company. The local HVAC company may have to close down if a lawsuit is filed against them.
