With the cold weather we all tend to spend the majority of our time indoors trying to stay warm. While sometimes snuggling in bed and drinking hot cocoa will do the trick, Falso 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 make sure they are operating. Since CO is an odorless gas and cannot be detected, it’s important that you have operating CO detectors to make sure your family is 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 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 generally safe, energy efficient, and an effective way to heat small areas of your home, but make sure it has been sanctioned by a recognized testing laboratory and comes with an automatic shut-off feature. Observe all manufacturer’s instructions and make sure it is placed on a hard, level surface at least 36 inches away from any flammable items.
With a Precision tune-up from Falso Service Experts in East Syracuse, we will perform a safety check of your heating system to make sure there are no leaks or carbon monoxide issues. Along with a heating tune-up, make sure your heating vents are free from obstruction and that you’re swapping out your air filter every month. This will keep the air flow unrestricted and help avoid allergens from aggravating respiratory issues.
