Kotz can Help Keep your Family Safe, Comfortable & Healthy

We know safety always trumps comfort, but this winter Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing can help you with both.

First, don’t let your family become part of a news headline like this: “Four People Dead After Apparent Carbon Monoxide Poisoning.” This story is from West Virginia, but it can happen anywhere. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, tasteless, and invisible gas. On average it kills more than 400 people across the country every year.

Kotz Heating, Cooling & Plumbing, your heating and cooling experts in Waterford, MI, reminds everyone we are now in the time of peak danger. It’s absolutely critical to check your CO detectors to make sure they are working correctly. If you don’t have carbon monoxide detectors, now is the time to buy and install them. Just remember, there are guidelines that need to be followed to fully protect your family.

  • There should be at least one detector on every level of your home
  • One should be located close to every bedroom
  • An alarm should be close to a door going to an attached garage

That last item is very important because a car, or any engine, left running in an attached garage can quickly fill the house with CO gas.

You may also want to consider installing more sophisticated carbon monoxide monitors. A CO detector has just one function, alert you to a dangerously high level of CO. A monitor measures even low levels. There is evidence that prolonged exposure to non-lethal levels of carbon monoxide can cause health problems, especially for children and the elderly. With a monitor, you can see the exact levels in your house and track any sudden changes.

Now let’s talk about how Kotz can make your home more comfortable. Is there anything more annoying this time of year than static electricity, dry skin, and frizzy hair? Blame the dry winter air. The solution is a whole house humidifier. Kotz features the Aprilaire brand.

Proper humidity levels are an important part of indoor air quality, and have benefits beyond just comfort. Dry air can damage furniture, woodwork, and hardwood floors because the wood shrinks as it dries out. There is also trusted research showing many types of viruses, including the flu, spread more easily when the air is dry. No small concern as the 2018 flu season has now reached epidemic levels.

Call Kotz Heating, Air & Plumbing now to find out how we can make you and your family safer, more comfortable, and healthier.
