Old furnaces can sometimes leak carbon monoxide

When our child said that he found a nice apartment, I thought that was great news…

And I suppose I was just so blissful that he was starting university soon and that he was finally getting out of the house.

I didn’t think about the trouble he might be getting into. I gained understanding later on regarding something that was certainly disturbing… He said that the reason why his rent was so cheap was because the property owner said something about the opening of there being a crack in the heat exchanger. He advised that our child keep his windows opened by a crack… My child didn’t even suppose this was a big deal because he didn’t even think about what the heat exchanger was. I had to explain that if there was a crack in the heat exchanger, then that meant there would be a carbon monoxide leak! I told our child that’s why he said to keep the windows open to vent out the potential carbon monoxide. I had a specialist come in and test his heating and A/C plan and sure enough, there was a carbon monoxide leak, and though certainly slight, it was still dangerous to our son! I was furious and I had a certainly heated conversation with the property owner of the building. I threatened to take him to court to sue him because of putting our son’s life at risk while knowing the serious danger of there being a carbon monoxide leak. He relented and even provided our child his deposit back along with his rent that he paid, however after that I helped our child find a certainly nice loft that had a certainly great working heating and A/C system… Even though it was a little more high-priced, it was worth it because it was safe, nearby to shopping centers, and there was a gym in the building.
