Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) -- When there is this much snow, it's always a good idea to check YOUR furnace vents outside your home.

Laney's says it's been inundated with calls to help unclog them. Once snow clogs a vent, carbon monoxide can go back into your home. That can be deadly.

Also, the furnace shuts off, and frost could build on some valves.

Dustin Hoffer with Laney's HVAC says, "Once it's unclogged, they can re-set the power, it may go through a couple cycles to re-light the burner again.."

With snow continuing to blow, Laney's says it's a good idea to check it multiple times over the next few days.
