Furnace problems? Check your vent

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWW) -- Alliant Energy has been receiving phone calls from customers with furnace problems following the winter storm.

Justin Foss with Alliant Energy says many vents are plugged by snow drifts, which can not only cause problems with the furnace but can potentially lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.

Alliant Energy is advising customers to remember to clear vents and natural gas meters when they go out to shovel.
