A Life-Saving Discovery For This Family
Uncovered During A Comprehensive Energy Assessment
Doing solar the way it should be done is about saving our customers money…but it can also be about improving the environment and saving lives. This story is a perfect example.
Being environmentally conscious, when Mark and Margaret learned they would need a roof replacement, they decided to “Go Solar” simultaneously. And they wanted to complete the entire roof, solar, and energy storage project with one company rather than needing to hire two or three different contractors. Thankfully, because of our amazing work for their neighbors, they knew just who to call. They scheduled a consultation with us and got started.
Once they made the decision to move forward with a high-performance GAF roof system, a top quality rooftop solar array, and battery storage, we kicked things off with our Comprehensive Energy Assessment (CEA). During this inspection, we found a carbon monoxide leak caused by a cracked heat exchanger in their furnace.
Mark and Margaret’s furnace was pumping out upwards of 541 parts per million. At this level, three hours of exposure would be life-threatening! So, we immediately contacted their utility company, had the gas turned off, and within a few days replaced the furnace.
The Importance Of Professional Energy Assessments
Before any solar energy system design begins, our first step is to perform a top-to-bottom professional CEA. During this assessment, a health and safety test is performed on all gas-fired appliances to ensure gas isn’t being released improperly. This test is vital in identifying carbon monoxide produced by appliances.
