Keep your home warm and family safe this winter by following a few heating safety tips.
Schedule Furnace Inspection
Your furnace keeps the house warm and comfortable during our bitterly cold winters, so make sure to take the time to have a professional heating specialist inspect and clean the system. During this yearly appointment, a specialist will check for any safety issues and can catch (and correct) any small problems before they cause a breakdown. Remember, annual inspections are so important that most furnace manufacturers require them to keep warranties valid.
Clear Vents After Storm
When there has been a significant amount of snowfall, we always suggest homeowners go outside and ensure vents (for appliances such as a furnace or dryer) are not blocked. These intake and exhaust vents allow systems to operate safely and always need to be clear. Make sure you know the location of all vents before a snowfall to make clearing them easier.
Smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors save lives, so it’s crucial they are always working. We recommend homeowners check alarms and detectors every six months to ensure they’re still working properly and have fresh batteries.
To keep your family safe and warm this winter, always follow the safety tips laid out in all manuals for electric and gas appliances.
