Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

With the winter weather we all tend to spend the majority of our time inside trying to stay warm. While sometimes hiding under the covers and drinking hot cocoa will do the trick, Stevenson Service Experts is here with a few tips on how to stay warm (and safe!) this season. 

Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors 

Confirm you have carbon monoxide (CO) detectors installed on all floors of your home, especially near bedrooms, and test them to make sure they are functioning. 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 right time of year to get the fireplace going, but before you do, make sure you have your chimney cleaned and examined by a specialist. The fireplace may be a source of CO if you don’t have it regularly cleaned and maintained. 

Be Careful with Space Heaters 
 
Space heaters are typically safe, energy efficient, and a helpful way to heat small regions of your home, but verify it has been authorized by a recognized testing laboratory and has an automatic shut-off feature. Obey all manufacturer’s instructions and ensure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least 36 inches 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 furnace to ensure there are no leaks or carbon monoxide issues. Along with a furnace tune-up, confirm your heating vents are not blocked and that you’re replacing your air filter each month. This will prevent the air flow from becoming restricted and help avoid allergens from aggravating respiratory issues. 

 
If You Need Help Staying Warm, Ask 

There are right ways and wrong ways to keep your home warm – using the oven, a grill, or a camp stove are all wrong ways. Using these products to heat your home could create a fire or a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide.
