Don’t let your heating system fail you. Be ready by scheduling your fall heating check-up now--before that first cold snap. Have a professional thoroughly check the system for any potential problems such as natural gas leaks, carbon monoxide or faulty equipment. A maintained system will work more efficiently and last longer.
If you do not have smoke detectors now is the time to install them. They are quick to put in, very inexpensive and could save your life. According to the Department of Health and Human Services about half of these home fire deaths are in homes unprotected by fire detectors and most happen during the winter. Check this website for styles and prices. If you have smoke detectors check the batteries every month to insure they are in good working condition.
A carbon monoxide detector is another necessary expenditure for the home. Every year several thousand people succumb to this silent killer. Protect your family and home by installing one.
Make this winter a warm, safe time in your home.
