Furnace Safety

It’s time to get comfortable and cosy indoors. While this fall may be different than usual, keeping you safe remains our top priority—stay protected with these important tips.

Safe and sound

Ontario’s third annual Carbon Monoxide Awareness Week runs from Nov. 1 – 7, 2020. Your Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarm sounds different than your smoke alarm. Test both alarms monthly and make sure everyone in your home knows the difference between the two alarm sounds.

Things are heating up

Safety means peace of mind. Now is the time to protect your home from harmful CO by having your gas-burning equipment inspected yearly by a TSSA registered heating contractor to ensure it’s ready for the colder months. Enbridge Gas doesn’t service gasburning equipment.

Know the difference

  • Natural gas leaks have a sulphur-like odour. If you smell rotten eggs, use your legs! Get outside fast and call Enbridge Gas from a safe distance.
  • CO alarms do not detect natural gas but they do detect silent, odourless carbon monoxide. Install CO alarms in your home and if you hear the beep, make sure you heed the warning.

Smell gas?

If you smell rotten eggs, leave the area immediately and take others with you. Act fast and don’t delay! Once you’re a safe distance away, call the Enbridge Gas emergency number to report the suspected leak.
