When your furnace is in an accident, the heat may not be enough to save your home
A recent home explosion has forced Ontario to upgrade the air conditioning system in its neighbourhoods.
The Ontario Ministry of Environment has estimated that about 200 homes are affected by the fire in Thunder Bay.
The ministry said the new system will require up to 10 hours of time a day to run and a total of 400 hours of cooling.
The heat will also be available in the form of hot water and hot air from the local Hydro-Quebec power plant, which will be replaced by a new one.
The Ministry said the upgrades will help reduce the risk of future explosions and prevent new ones from starting.
The latest home explosion in Thunder Lake happened around 7:30 p.m. on July 10.
No one was hurt and no one has been charged in the incident.
