Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

With the winter season we all tend to spend most of our time indoors trying to stay warm. While sometimes curling up with a blanket and drinking coffee will do the trick, Stevenson Service Experts is here with a few tips on how to stay warm (and safe!) this winter. 

Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors 

Verify you have carbon monoxide (CO) detectors installed on all floors of your home, especially near bedrooms, and test them to verify they are functioning. Since CO does not have a smell and cannot be detected, it’s important that you have operating CO detectors to make sure your home is safe. 

Get Your Chimney Inspection 

This is the ideal time of year to get the fireplace going, but before you do, be sure you have your chimney cleaned and checked 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 an effective way to heat small areas of your home, but confirm it has been sanctioned by a recognized testing laboratory and has an automatic shut-off feature. Obey all manufacturer’s instructions and be sure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least three feet away from any flammable products. 

Furnace Tune-Up 

With a heating tune-up from Stevenson Service Experts in Columbus, we will perform a safety check of your heating equipment to ensure there are no leaks or carbon monoxide issues. Along with a furnace tune-up, verify your heating vents are not obstructed and that you’re changing your air filter each month. This will prevent the air flow from becoming restricted and help prevent 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 products to heat your home could cause a fire or a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide.
