Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

With the winter season we all tend to spend the majority of our time in our homes trying to stay warm. While sometimes curling up with a blanket and drinking hot tea will do the trick, Stevenson Service Experts is here with a few tips on how to stay warm (and safe!) during the cold. 

Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors 

Confirm you have carbon monoxide (CO) detectors installed on each floor of your home, specifically near bedrooms, and test them to make sure they are operating. Since CO cannot be detected because it is odorless and invisible, it’s vital that you have working CO detectors to make sure your family is safe. 

Get Your Chimney Inspection 

This is the ideal time of year to get the fireplace up and running, but before you do, be sure you have your chimney cleaned and checked by a professional. The fireplace can be a source of CO if you don’t keep it regularly cleaned and maintained. 

Be Careful with Space Heaters 
 
Space heaters are generally safe, energy efficient, and a helpful way to heat small areas of your home, but verify it has been approved by a recognized testing laboratory and contains an automatic shut-off feature. Observe all manufacturer’s instructions and be sure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least 3 feet away from any flammable items. 

Furnace Tune-Up 

With a heating tune-up from Stevenson Service Experts in Columbus, we will perform a safety check of your heating system to ensure there are no leaks or CO issues. Along with a Precision tune-up, confirm your heating vents are not blocked and that you’re replacing your air filter every month. This will keep the air flow unrestricted and help stop allergens from irritating respiratory issues. 

 
If You Need Help Staying Warm, Ask 

There are appropriate ways and wrong ways to heat your home – using the oven, a grill, or a camp stove are all wrong ways. Using these appliances to heat your home could result in a fire or a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide.
