Maintenance of Appliances
The three most commonly-used appliances are boilers, warm air furnaces, and hot water heaters. Some maintenance may be out yourself, while other situations will require the hands of a qualified technician. If you're unsure, do not hesitate to check the water heater on your own. Call a professional because it's better to be safe than it is badly injured.
General maintenance tips:
- Natural gas flames should appear blue. Do not use any appliance in which the flame is yellow or orange - unless it is a fireplace.
- Ensure that nothing is blocking your exhaust ventilation.
- The connection of your natural gas should be clear of any snow or ice. To avoid accumulation, check your connections, meters, air intake, and exhaust pipes to make sure they remain accessible. Blocked exterior facilities can not be able to flow properly.
- Have an expert inspect your annual gas appliances yearly. They know what to look for when it comes to blemishes and problems.

For the grill masters:
Everybody loves to get together with great food. If you are the barbecue master remember it is dangerous to use the indoors appliance, even if it's in the garage with the door open. Barbecues that run on natural gas shut down valves that need to be turned off after each use. This is very important for your safety.
