Gas Water Heater Lady Lake

Another reason to go all-electric: deadly carbon monoxide gas. Here’s a video from Carl Seville, the Green Curmudgeon, demonstrating the dangers of gas water heaters. The theatrical smoke represents deadly carbon monoxide. When a kitchen exhaust fan is turned on upstairs, a negative pressure is created which pulls air from the water heater’s gas exhaust vent. The back drafting reverses the flow and poisonous carbon monoxide comes into the home rather than exhausting outside. During 1999–2010, a total of 5,149 deaths from unintentional carbon monoxide poisoning occurred in the United States, an average of 430 deaths per year, according to the CDC.

    Hello Matt. I love what you have done with your home. My wife and I just
    bought our dream home, a one acre farm home built in 1936, and want to make
    it a net zero home. My big question is what does it cost to install a
    geothermal heating system…and what type of water tank do you need? Hope
    you can help.
