Stay Warm and Safe This Winter

With the winter season we all tend to spend most of our time in our homes trying to stay warm. While sometimes curling up with a blanket and drinking coffee will do the trick, Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing 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 each floor of your home, especially near bedrooms, and test them to make sure they are operating. Since CO does not have a smell and cannot be detected, it’s important that you have working CO detectors to make sure your family is safe. 

Get Your Chimney Inspection 

This is the perfect time of year to get the fireplace roaring, but before you do, make sure you have your chimney cleaned and examined by an expert. 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 typically safe, energy efficient, and an effective way to heat small regions 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 make sure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least three feet away from any flammable items. 

Furnace Tune-Up 

With a Precision tune-up from Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S., we will perform a safety check of your furnace to make sure there are no leaks or CO problems. Along with a furnace tune-up, confirm your heating vents are free from obstruction and that you’re replacing your air filter every 30 days. This will prevent the air flow from becoming restricted and help avoid allergens from irritating 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 cause a fire or a dangerous buildup of carbon monoxide.
