ST. LOUIS, Oct. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The recent cold weather has prompted some to turn on their furnace and boilers only to find them needing repairs, according to the CEO of a local environmental abatement company, Abatepro, Inc.
Nicholas Feco has been performing asbestos inspections since 2004 and has seen a steady influx of HVAC systems needing repairs as fall weather approaches.
"When it gets cold, equipment will fail," says Mr. Feco, "and the reputable HVAC guys won't touch asbestos pipes, boilers or duct wrap."
This year the number of inspections has dropped. Mr. Feco believes this trend will continue with the economy the way it is.
"People barely have enough money to pay their heating bills let alone pay for repairs. Throw in the cost of inspections, removal, repair and safety goes out the window; you'll end up with a contaminated house."
Abatepro, Inc. is a licensed, insured and bonded asbestos removal company in Missouri and Illinois. The free inspection program is limited to the Saint Louis Area and will continue until December 15, 2010.
