Be Safe and prepared

What to do in the event of an HVAC emergency

If you smell gas or hear your carbon monoxide alarm going off, you will want to take extra precautions. Natural gas is normally odourless, but gas manufacturers add a chemical called mercaptan which gives it a smell of rotten eggs. Carbon Monoxide is odourless, however each home should have a carbon monoxide alarm. If you smell rotten eggs, or hear your carbon monoxide alarm going off, take the following steps.

  • DO NOT turn on any appliances, motor vehicles, smoke, or light any fires. Do not use your phone anywhere near the suspected leak.
  • Go outside and leave the area immediately
  • Call Advanced HVAC
  • Call your gas company

Gas and Carbon Monoxide leaks can be extremely dangerous, so make sure to keep yourself and your family safe.

Frequently Asked Question

What is an HVAC emergency?2023-08-28T13:52:43-04:00

When your furnace, heating unit, or air conditioner stops working, interior temperatures can increase or decrease dramatically, especially during winter or summer. If your furnace has broken down or your AC unit has stopped working, this is considered to be an HVAC emergency, especially if there are young children, pets, or elderly family members residing in the home. If you are experiencing a no-heat or no-cooling situation, contact Advanced HVAC today – we can help you get things up and running as soon as possible!

Why does my furnace smell like rotten eggs?2023-08-28T13:54:27-04:00

If your gas furnace smells like rotten eggs, this is a serious cause for concern. Natural gas itself is naturally odorless. Because of this, gas and utility companies add a harmless chemical called mercaptan to natural gas to help us identify gas leaks. If you smell sulphur or rotten eggs in your home and have a natural gas furnace, it is possible you are experiencing a natural gas leak. If you suspect there is a natural gas leak in your home, you should:

  1. Evacuate your home immediately and leave the door open.
  2. Don’t turn on any lights, use electrical switches, telephones, appliances, garage door openers, etc.
  3. Call us immediately from a neighbor’s home at 613-833-9963.
  4. Do not smoke, use lighters, or matches.

Natural gas leaks are very serious and should be treated with the utmost urgency.

What is the main cause of a furnace breakdown?2020-09-29T11:39:18-04:00

There are a number of things which can cause your furnace to break down – that’s why it helps to have a trusted HVAC professional help you out when you are experiencing issues. The most common causes of furnace breakdowns in Ottawa are:

  • Broken thermostat
  • Dirty or clogged filters
  • Pilot light/electrical ignition failure
  • Blower motor failure
  • Fuel supply issues

No matter the cause of your furnace breakdown, Advanced HVAC’s team of licensed and insured professionals can help you get your home’s heating back running again!

How can I prevent HVAC emergencies?2020-09-29T11:38:21-04:00

As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This is true for many things in life, including HVAC maintenance. Proper AC and furnace maintenance is essential to prevent more costly HVAC emergencies down the road. Make sure to schedule regular maintenance for your HVAC units, change filters regularly, keep the area around your units clear, and regularly check for signs of leaks. If you suspect anything is off with your heating or cooling units, call Advanced HVAC today.

Why is changing filters important for preventing HVAC emergencies?2023-08-28T13:55:42-04:00

As filters are used, they capture particles in the air to prevent them from being run through your HVAC unit and into your home. Air Conditioning filters are generally meant to be changed every month, while furnace filters should be changed every month to 3 months, depending on the make and model of your furnace. If you don’t change your filters as often as you should, they become blocked and force your unit to work harder than it should in order to circulate air. This leads to increased hydro costs for running your units, as well as strain on the machines which can lead to breakdowns.
