  • Safe. There should be no fumes unless there something wrong. Maybe you need to get the furnace checked. Make sure to have working smoke and co2 detectors (that's for everyone, not just pregnant ladies lol)

  • It's safe. Just make sure you open a door to the outside occasionally to let in fresh air and some of the gas smells out. :)
