Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

With the cold weather we all tend to spend more time indoors 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 

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

Get Your Chimney Inspection 

This is the perfect time of year to get the fireplace up and running, but before you do, ensure you have your chimney cleaned and inspected by a specialist. The fireplace could be a source of CO if you don’t keep it properly cleaned and maintained. 

Be Careful with Space Heaters 
 
Space heaters are normally safe, energy efficient, and a successful way to heat small sections of your home, but confirm it has been sanctioned by a recognized testing laboratory and has an automatic shut-off feature. Follow all manufacturer’s instructions and make sure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least 3 feet away from any flammable products. 

Furnace Tune-Up 

With a furnace tune-up from Stevenson Service Experts in Columbus, we will perform a safety check of your heating equipment to make sure there are no leaks or CO issues. Along with a Precision tune-up, verify your heating vents are not obstructed and that you’re swapping out your air filter each month. This will keep the air flow unrestricted and help stop allergens from aggravating respiratory issues. 

 
If You Need Help Staying Warm, Ask 

There are correct ways and wrong ways to make sure your home is heated – using the oven, a grill, or a camp stove are all wrong ways. Using these devices to heat your home could cause a fire or a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide.
