Heaters have become inevitable to lessen the bite of chilly winter days. So much so that the Gas geysers for hot water have emerged as a cost-effective and efficient system to use in homes and the room heaters are no less. In the winter of 2019-20, the sales of room heaters more than doubled due to the sharp decline in the mercury levels. Geysers also saw a sales growth of 40%. In the first week of January, retailers of Delhi and NCR region reported a total stock out of oil filled radiator room heaters and heat convectors, with everything (room and water heaters) getting sold off in one week. As crucial as the heaters are, however, it comes with deadly perils. While electric shocks and burns can be tackled with a little consciousness, the other most dangerous hazard, which has recently been killing many people is CO (Carbon Monoxide) poisoning.
Accidents of such sort have happened in the past multiple times where innocent lives were taken by the deadly build-up of Carbon Monoxide fumes (an invisible, odourless, poisonous gas). It is astonishing to know how much harm a simple-looking room heater can do.
It is always regarded as a better option to ensure safety measures before any malicious event happens. Get a technician to check your gas water heater, room heater and gas furnace annually as part of a maintenance plan. Annual maintenance is important to avoid inefficiency, sudden breakdown, and CO leaks. For the safety of your family, install a CO detector. That would alarm you in case of the dangerous carbon monoxide build-up sooner—far before it threatened their lives.
