Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

With the cold weather we all tend to spend the majority of our time inside trying to stay warm. While sometimes snuggling in bed and drinking hot tea will do the trick, Stevenson Service Experts is here with a couple tips on how to stay warm (and safe!) this winter. 

Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors 

Make sure you have carbon monoxide (CO) detectors installed on each floor of your home, particularly near bedrooms, and test them to verify they are working. Since CO is an odorless gas and cannot be detected, it’s vital that you have functioning CO detectors to make sure your family is safe. 

Get Your Chimney Inspection 

This is the ideal time of year to get the fireplace roaring, but before you do, be sure you have your chimney cleaned and checked by a specialist. The fireplace can 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 helpful way to heat small regions of your home, but verify it has been sanctioned 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 3 feet away from any flammable items. 

Furnace Tune-Up 

With a furnace tune-up from Stevenson Service Experts in Columbus, we will perform a safety check of your furnace to make sure there are no leaks or CO problems. Along with a Precision tune-up, make sure your heating vents are free from obstruction and that you’re changing your air filter every 30 days. This will keep the air flow unrestricted and help prevent allergens from irritating respiratory issues. 

 
If You Need Help Staying Warm, Ask 

There are right 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 appliances to heat your home could cause a fire or a dangerous reserve of carbon monoxide.
