Keep Snow Cleared from Gas Meters and Vent Pipes

There are a lot of things we think about after a snowstorm such as plowing the driveway and clearing the snow and ice from the roof, but do you always remember to clear the snow from outside meters and vents? It is extremely important to keep these areas cleared.

Exhaust vents for water heaters, furnaces, or fireplaces should also be kept clear and free from snow/ice. If the exhaust cannot escape through the vent, you risk carbon monoxide buildup inside the property.

When clearing these areas outside of your home or business, make sure you do it carefully. Melting with a heat source or chipping/scraping can damage the equipment and cause further problems down the road. Instead, use a broom or brush to rid the snow.
