Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

With the winter season we all tend to spend more time inside trying to stay warm. While sometimes curling up with a blanket and drinking hot cocoa 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 all floors of your home, specifically near bedrooms, and test them to verify they are working. Since CO does not have a smell and cannot be detected, it’s crucial that you have working CO detectors to make sure you are safe. 

Get Your Chimney Inspection 

This is the ideal time of year to get the fireplace going, but before you do, make sure you have your chimney cleaned and inspected by an expert. The fireplace can 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 successful way to heat small sections of your home, but verify it has been sanctioned by a recognized testing laboratory and contains an automatic shut-off feature. Follow all manufacturer’s instructions and ensure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least 36 inches away from anything flammable. 

Furnace Tune-Up 

With a furnace tune-up from Stevenson Service Experts in Columbus, we will perform a safety check of your heating system to be sure there are no leaks or carbon monoxide issues. Along with a Precision tune-up, verify your heating vents are not blocked and that you’re changing your air filter every 30 days. This will keep the air flow unrestricted and help stop 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 appliances to heat your home could create a fire or a dangerous accumulation of carbon monoxide.
