Q: Gas water heater, is it dangerous?

I live in a rather old appartment in Beijing and our water heater system is gas driven . That will say that everytime i take a shower or otherwise needs hot water i need to turn on the gas burner. I recently heard of a couple of appartments blowing up here in beijing. I dont know if that was because of old gas heaters, but i seriously suspects so....

Can anyone enlighten me on this one please?

It is actually potentially harmful.

First, carbon monoxyde. If your appartment is not properly vented, then there is risk. It's an odourless gas and can kill you without even you knowing it.

Then there's the risk of fire. Careful of flammable fire vapors.

Also, check if the bottom of the gas heater is sealed. Old ones arent, causing risks of explosions.

If you are very careful, you should be able to reduce the risks, but there is no such thng as a riskless gas water heater...

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
