(BPT) - As you turn up the heat during colder months, help reduce your risk of CO poisoning at home with the following steps:
1) Check your appliances and furnace
Make it routine to have your heating system, water heater and any other gas, oil or fuel-burning appliances serviced by a qualified technician. CO can be produced from fuel-burning devices such as your home's furnace, dryer vent in a drying machine, and fireplace or chimney, so it's important to regularly check them to ensure they are clear of debris and snow, especially after a snowstorm.
"CO safety is important year-round, but especially in the colder months when the number of incidents typically increases," said Ashley Gocken, home safety expert with First Alert, a manufacturer of residential fire and CO detection devices. "It's important to take the proper steps to ensure your home and family are protected from CO."
(BPT) - As you've likely stayed indoors more over the past couple of years, you may have realized there are things about your home that need to be changed or upgraded. Rising heating costs may also have you concerned about the upcoming chilly winter months. With cold temps already here, it's important to be sure your home is ready - and that your family will stay sufficiently warm and comfortable throughout the coldest time of the year.
Follow these tips to help you stay warm, save Money - and Make your home eco friendly.
