Greene's Expert Advice


Welcome to Greene's Plumbing, Heating and Electrical "Tips from the Experts!" Today, we are going to focus on an important issue that we like to discuss with all of our customers. Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Over 400 people die from accidental Carbon Monoxide poisoning every year in the United States alone. These tragedies, are 100% avoidable.

Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless gas that can leak from water heaters, stoves, exhaust pipes, gas powered dryers, furnaces, as well as cars and anything that runs on a small motor. Carbon Monoxide is a silent killer, many times individuals do not realize they have been exposed, until it is too late. It is imperative that you protect your family and your home.

What can YOU do to prevent Carbon Monoxide exposure in your home? Call us! We can check your home for Carbon Monoxide today. For the price of a service call, we make sure your home is safe and CO free. We also sell Carbon Monoxide alarms to place throughout your home. Just like fire alarms, Carbon Monoxide alarms are a safety necessity for every home.

Expert TIP: Change batteries in your fire alarms and Carbon Monoxide alarms when you change your clocks for daylight savings time in the spring and fall of every year!

As a home owner it is also important to be aware of potential natural gas leaks in or around your home. Unlike Carbon Monoxide, natural gas has an odor.

Do you suspect a gas leak in or around your home? If you are smelling gas fumes and suspect a leak, exit your home immediately and call your local utility company. Signs of a gas leak include:

  • “Rotten egg” smell

  • Dead or discolored vegetation in an otherwise green area

  • Dirt or dust blowing from a hole in the ground

  • Bubbling in wet or flooded areas

  • Blowing or hissing sound

  • Flames, if a leak has ignited

  • Gas in transmission pipelines does not have odorant added, so signs of a pipeline leak may include all of the above except the rotten egg odor.

DO NOT do any of the following!

  • Light a match

  • Light a cigarette

  • Turn on or off an electrical switch

  • Turn on or off the stove

  • Turn on the microwave

  • Turn on the toaster
