Heating Safety Tips

If you are from Virginia, you know that winter days can be chilly or downright cold. At this time of year, people are counting on their home heating systems to keep warm. Some homeowners do not know how to operate their home heating systems; which can put you and your family in a dangerous situation. 70% of fires in the winter are caused by heaters.

Give Your Space Heater Some Space
homeowners opt for small space heaters to stay warm. Each year, countless fires are caused by space heaters. To prevent fires, make sure your
space heater is at least 3 feet away from flammable materials.

Beware of Carbon Monoxide
In the winter, it is not uncommon for furnaces to leak carbon monoxide (CO). This gas is colorless, odorless and extremely harmful to your health. Getting your furnace tuned up by the professionals at Air Treatment Company can prevent this from happening. We also suggest having a carbon monoxide detector installed in your home.
